“The Lord is a warrior; … Your right hand, O Lord, is majestic in power, Your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.”

Today’s devotion comes from 1 Chronicles chapter 7.  Here is a link to this chapter –

I quote only the following verses.

“1 Now the sons of Issachar were four:  Tola, Puah, Jashub and Shimron.  2 The sons of Tola were Uzzi, Rephaiah, Jeriel, Jahmai, Ibsam and Samuel, heads of their fathers’ households.  The sons of Tola were mighty men of valor in their generations;  their number in the days of David was 22,600.  3 The son of Uzzi was Izrahiah.  And the sons of Izrahiah were Michael, Obadiah, Joel, Isshiah;  all five of them were chief men.  4 With them by their generations according to their fathers’ households were 36,000 troops of the army for war, for they had many wives and sons.  5 Their relatives among all the families of Issachar were mighty men of valor, enrolled by genealogy, in all 87,000.”  1 Chronicles 7:1-5.


Mighty men of valor in this chapter points us to the LORD.

“3 “The Lord is a warrior;
The Lord is His name.
4 “Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea;
And the choicest of his officers are drowned in the Red Sea.
5 “The deeps cover them;
They went down into the depths like a stone.
6 “Your right hand, O Lord, is majestic in power,
Your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.
7 “And in the greatness of Your excellence You overthrow those who rise up against You;
You send forth Your burning anger, and it consumes them as chaff.”  Exodus 15:3-7.

In Your lovingkindness You have led the people whom You have redeemed;
In Your strength You have guided them to Your holy habitation.”  Exodus 15:13.

“17 “You will bring them and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance,
The place, O Lord, which You have made for Your dwelling,
The sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.
18 “The Lord shall reign forever and ever.”  Exodus 15:17-18.
