“By Your power You forced nations out of the land, but You planted our ancestors there. You shattered many groups of people, but You set our ancestors free. It was not with their swords that they took possession of the land. They did not gain victory with their own strength. It was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of your presence that did it, because You were pleased with them …All day long we praise our God. We give thanks to You forever” (Psalm 44:2-3,8).
The power comes from God. The victory is given to us. Let us praise the Lord and give thanks to Him.
