Psalm 110: 2
"The staff of your strength will be dispatched
by God from Zion."
An anonymous composer wrote Psalm 110 to describe King David. (However, some commentators such as Rashi believed that Psalm 110 described Abraham.)
This nameless psalmist sings of David's success in battle of the many devoted people who hurried to volunteer to risk their lives and fight alongside their magnificent leader. He lauded David with praise describing how youthful King David was - perhaps referring to his energy or his creativity.
"The staff of your strength will be dispatched by God from Zion" the psalmist declares.
King David accomplished much through his military acumen, his popularity and his youthful energy. Yet the psalmists reveals that the source of all of these blessings is not David, rather it is God, the creator of the universe, who has dispatched these gifts from Zion.
Likewise, God is the source of strength and power for each of us as we lift a heavy weight or run a marathon. or, even more, as we lift a great burden for our neighbor or run a gauntlet of seemingly insurmountable obstacles in our life, God is the source of our strength.
