"We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions."
Last week we spoke about success and purpose, which the writer prays for us and all of God’s people. After that last request in verse four comes this declaration, “We will rejoice in your…victory…” Notice the two words underlined in bold. First, there is no question or doubt, it is a statement of fact; second, when God’s will for our lives brings us into success and purpose, victory comes with it. We are not talking about a metaphorical, privately held, or heavenly eventuality. We are talking about a victorious life and reality that can be seen and attested to by others in everyday matters, situations, and encounters!
Are you feeling lost, defeated, dejected, or left out/behind today? Do you feel that there is no way out of your situation? Do you feel that you are dealing with something you can’t bounce back from? Let me tell you from experience, all of that can be a reality and yet God can turn the facts around to bring you into success, purpose, and victory! Even over the greatest obstacle you have ever faced! I can say this in confidence because I am living proof!
Call on His great name, trust His perfect will, and rise to purpose and victory in Christ’s name!
Victorious In His name,
