“But you are holy, O you that inhabit the praises of Israel.” Psalm 22:3
It is often said that in this life, one is either in a battle, just coming out of one or soon to be in one. Battles are part of life. We have a powerful weapon for victory that is often forgotten. Praise. No matter what we face, God has not abandon us to face it alone! In the presence of God, victory is assured. Praise puts us in his presence! Why not read this aloud and let the Spirit minister to your spirit.
Exodus 14:13-14 And Moses said to the people, Do not be afraid. Take your stand and see the salvation of Jehovah, which He will prepare for you today. For as you see the Egyptians today, you shall not continue to see them again forever. (14) Jehovah will fight for you, and you be silent.
Father, let these words be blessing builders in our lives. We rejoice that you grant us confidence that brings peace: You are present in our battles…you are working out our victories. Bless us, Lord, with hearts that can not fear because they are captivated by You. Might our eyes clearly see you removing enemies and delivering us; might our ears hear your voice telling us to move here, move there, do this, do that. From tiny things to huge things, Father, let our steps of obedience keep us in the perfect position to see your work.
Father, grant us confidence that every battlefield we encounter is under your direction. Fill us with peace that any battlefield holds the potential for great glory for you. Every situation is managed by you; you will provide all that is needed for total victory. We praise you for blessing us with faith that pleases you. We rejoice that walking in faith gives strength to others.
Bless us with eyes that see you intervening, freeing us from difficult circumstance…eyes that see you removing enemies supernaturally. We praise you for that and rejoice in the opportunity to bring your presence to this tangled world. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
