The Author of Victory!

MP910216452[1] O grant us help against the foe, for human help is worthless. With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.             Psalm 60:11-12 NRSV

David knew all about foes. As a shepherd, he fought those that tried to steal and kill his sheep. As a warrior, he fought foes no one else had the courage to stand up to. Each and every time he faced a foe he learned a valuable lesson. He learned that if God is for you, then nothing can stand against you. He also learned that in some situations, human help is worthless, because only God brings true victory!

MP900409084[1] Today, you too may be facing a number of foes. There may be foes in your workplace, where people make unreasonable demands of you, or undermine you. You may be facing foes at home, with rising tensions in your relationships. Your foes may be within, with anger, worry and sadness engulfing you. Your foes may come from substances that fight to consume and control you. Your foes may be financial, with debts dragging you into ruin. Your foes may even be spiritual, with principalities and powers aligned against you to draw you away from loving and serving God.

Whatever kind of foe you are face, one thing is certain. You need God! That is what David discovered. He learned that the size of your problem doesn’t really matter, if God is on your side. He also learned that the size of your army and the strength of your weapons don’t matter either, if God is on your side.

One thing is certain, you need God!

After all, if God is for you then who can be against you? No one! God will order your circumstances to bring you victory. God will provide the resources you need to triumph. God will give you the strength and wisdom necessary to fight the good fight of faith!

With God you will do valiantly! You will emerge victorious over your foes. God is the Author and the Finisher of your faith. The Lord will bring you through!

With God you will do valiantly!

Why not call on God, just as David did? Invite the Lord to take charge of your battles. Look to God, and lean on Jesus. Then praise the Lord for his steadfast love and faithfulness!

Prayer:

Victorious God, you know every battle I am fighting. You know the struggles I am having, and the problems I face. I am praying for your help. You have the answer I need. You are my strength and my song. Lead me today to victory!

Amen.

With God, You Will Emerge Victorious!
