The warrior is mighty, he has been trained by the Lord Almighty for war. Yet he knows that the ultimate source of his victory is through the Lord who fights with him.
In vs. 7-8 and again in vs.11, the warrior calls for God to "rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speak vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood."
He asks for deliverance from invaders who follow strange gods, those of false smiles and wicked intent, those of the boastful tongue. Rid me, and deliver me, the warrior cries. He is a warrior whose strength is augmented by the mighty arm of the ultimate warrior. He knows there is a God who fights in righteousness, and who touches the very mountains and they shake
When Jonathan and his armourbearer set out to fight a Philistine garrison alone, he knew that God's ability to achieve victory was not based on how many warriors fought under his banner. "There is no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few." (I Sam. 14:6)
The garrison of about 20 men fell before Jonathan and his armourbearer. And there was trembling in the host, in the field, and in the garrison. The very earth trembled because the heavens were bowed down and the power of the Lord touched the earth. (I Sam. 14:14-15)
It is our armies, our military, who are charged with protecting the peace of our land. These are our mighty men, those who not only train hard, but trust in the power of the Lord to deliver his people from the hand of strange children.
