Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. Psalm 20:6
Everyone wants to have victory in everything that they do or tackle. They want to win in the end. Although everyone wants to win, the majority do not feel as if they are winning. Watching other people causes them to often think that they are losing the battle.
As things go wrong and do not go the way a person thinks they should go, most people think they have lost the victory and are a failure. At this point many will give up and not try any more. This is losing the battle and is failure.
David learned that God gives victory to those who are anointed. God always answers and gives the needed victorious power to overcome.
It is common for believers to struggle with the thought that they have been given victory. They see things happening in their life that does not appear to be victory but defeat. God does not appear to answer their cries for help.
Some will say that this is only about Jesus and not about them. They forget that as a believer they are anointed by God. They are anointed with His Holy Spirit, so they can have victory.
Yet, if they stay focused on trusting God and His direction in their lives, they will begin to see that there is victory all the time. Walking through a difficult situation with joy and head held high is victory. Walking through a difficult situation knowing that God is in control of it is victory. Turning away from any sinful temptation is a victory. Being a witness is a victory.
Faith in God will ultimately result in the perfect victory of eternal life in heaven with God.
God has given you victory. He has won the war for you. All you need to do is trust Him and follow Him daily. Know that God is in control and wants you to win every time.
Ask God to open your eyes to the daily victories in your life, the little steps that move you forward in your journey with God. Do not be discouraged when things don’t go your way or the way you think they should go, God is in control and is doing the best for you. You have victory in Jesus!
I pray today that you will know God is in control; that you will have faith in God; that God will reveal to you His victory in your life; that you will know the strength God has for you; and that you will walk in the victory of Jesus.
