Victory song by faith!

Verse for Today: Thursday, October 13, 2011

Isaiah 12:2 – Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation.

God has given the promise that He will save His people from all trouble including direct attacks of the enemy. It is this promise that has given the reassurance and certainty for His people about the attainment of victory. Such surety takes away all their fears about the present and the future. It helps them to trust in His strength rather than in their own strength. They are able to start enjoying the future victory with songs of celebration. God’s promises are as sure as He lives and they are based on His reputation as the God who keeps His word. His promises are neither to give His people temporary relief nor to distract their attention from their problems for a short while. They are absolutely certain and sure to come true without the shadow of a doubt. So God’s people do not need to wait for completion of the tasks in order to celebrate. They have the freedom and opportunity to claim the promises and believe that it is being accomplished. This is like a student who wrote the test and has the conviction of success even before the result is announced. Such was the faith of Abraham a quarter of a century before he finally saw Isaac being born. Joseph had such a sense of accomplishment for 13 years before the visions come true. This sense of accomplishment prevented them from grumbling or finding fault with the circumstances they were made to go through. David knew all along about the end result of his persecution in the hands of the enemies and believed that one day God’s promises to him would be accomplished. All God’s children have the same privilege to believe in the promises of God and be sure about its fulfillment. Such faith can command all fears to eclipse with its accompanying unbelief and get lost. With such faith and trust in the Lord it would be possible to start praising Him in any circumstance for the future victories that they will see soon.

Dear friend, are you a victim of unbelief and the resultant fear stemming from your circumstances? Are the signs and symptoms that you see around make you feel negative and fly away to a distant place to escape the wrath of your situations? Remember, your Lord has said that He will save you from the heat and danger of your circumstances. He has assured and reassured many times that He will be your strength in times of weakness and joy in times of fear. You are challenged by your situations to see how you will start singing songs in the night when all around you is dark and cloudy. But it is possible for you to claim victory over your situations through faith in the unchanging promises of the Lord even if the Sun stops to give light. Your Lord is your sunshine over the dark horizons of your life and will brighten your life situations. Even the faith that you have is a gift given by Him as a promise. If you lack faith, you have the freedom to go to His presence and ask Him to give you more faith and it shall certainly be given to you. He is a benevolent father who is interested and committed to give His children His best. He doesn’t want His children to wallow in their fear of circumstances. He wants us to know that He is the king over all your circumstances with absolute control over them. He will pour out His strength in you so that you will be able to withstand the pressures of all your situations by putting all your faith on Him. Our days are designed by the Lord with prayers, praises, songs of thanksgiving and victory marches as He fights our battles and secures victory for us every step of the way if we claim it by faith. Let today be one such day when we give Him praise for His favours to us through His strength because of the faith that He has imparted into our souls.

Psalms 62:8 – Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.

Thought for Today
Trust in God dispels fear and doubt and enables us to sing songs of praise and victory through the journey.
