I Can Leap Over a Wall
For by thee I run after a troop, And by my God I leap over a wall.
The language is general, but it seems to contain a reminiscence of two memorable events in David’s life: the successful pursuit of the predatory ‘troop’ of Amalekites which had sacked Ziklag (1 Samuel 30; in Psalm 18:8; Psalm 18:15; Psalm 18:23the same word troop is used of the Amalekites): and the capture of Zion, effected with such unexpected ease that he seemed to have leapt over the walls which its defenders boasted were impregnable (2 Samuel 5:6-8).
2 Samuel 22:30 For by you I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
- Walls close in
WE all experience barriers
- life situation
- color of someone’s skin
- lack of motivation
- weaknesses: imaginative or real
- communication or lack of it
2. Walls can block us
What others say about you...
secrets...”Secrets make you sick”
physical problems...”Do you want to be healed?”
3. Walls can be jumped over
“What separates me from my present is like a fine mist, an intangible veil, an invisible wall. They don't put up the slightest resistance. Nothing would shatter if I were to walk through it. Because there is actually nothing at all between me and the world. A single step would be enough. Why didn't I take it long ago?”
― Pascal Mercier
Our faith must be greater than our fear!
By My God!
God can help us leap over any wall/barrier
