Training for reigning-1

Psalms 144:1 “Blessed [be] the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, [and] my fingers to fight:” (KJV)
Psalms 144:1 “Blessed be GOD, my mountain, who trains me to fight fair and well.” (MSG)
Psalms 144:1 “Praise the Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.” (NLT)
I saw a film recently that opened with scene in which serious shooting was going on. A typical war film scenario; soldiers running, taking cover, bullets flying, soldiers trying to avoid being killed while attacking the enemy.
The war scene went on for some time only for the supposed actor who looks like the hero and leader to be shot and killed!
I couldn’t understand why a film will start by killing the main character, a very popular actor for that matter. After his death, his team fought on gallantly and won the battle. Thereafter, they assembled to mourn him, but to my surprise he got up and I heard the director shout “Cut”.
Then it suddenly occured to me that it was a dress rehearsal! It was a simulation. It looked so real and I already felt pity for the “actor”. After the mock battle, their commander brought all of them together including “the supposedly killed”, and told them why the actor was “killed” and why the others were injured. He showed them who and who went out of position and what to do to avoid such in a real life situation.
Every soldier must be trained and prepared for battle. Training scenarios are always designed to help the soldiers simulate real life war situations.
Our focal scripture says, “He teacheth my hand to war and finger to battle…” what I saw in that movie is the training process. It is simply to prepare the soldiers for real life situations. You can imagine what would have happened without the simulation!
Eventually in that film, those soldiers went for a real war…To be continued
