Fleeing to God’s Banner

David writes Psalm 60 from the battlefield, lamenting God’s absence from the fight. He acknowledges that God is the one who divides up the land, not the armies who fight over it. If God doesn’t fight for them, the war is lost already. If God does fight for them, then they will do valiantly, for God is the one who will trample their foes. As we wage heavenly war against sin and evil, we must let go of any vain hopes that God will join our battles, or that salvation will come from man. Instead, we must assemble under God’s banner, and call upon Him for help. And as we come to worship together, that is exactly what we are doing.
