“I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples, And I will sing praises to You among the nations” (Psalm 108:3 NKJV).

David declared his intent to praise the Lord not only among his own people in Israel, but to sing praises among all the peoples and nations of the world. This is evidence of God’s Spirit at work in David. For it was always God’s intent to bless the whole world through the seed of Abraham. As the Lord said to Abraham, “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen. 22:18).

That “Seed” is Christ Jesus, the Son of David, the Son of God. And the Spirit that worked in David to declare God’s praise among the nations, now works in us, moving us to fulfill Christ’s commission to “make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19).

“Oh, please help us against our enemies, for all human help is useless. With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes” (Psalm 108:12-13 NLT)

This psalm of David reveals his secret strategy for success in battle, namely, “God’s help.” We often attempt “mighty things” with human strategies and plans, only to be defeated. We ask God’s help, but don’t submit to God’s way. When we face our Goliaths, we often fail because we face him wearing Saul’s armor, rather than the Shepherd’s garb.
