"But we have risen and stand upright"
Psalm 20:8(b) (NKJV)
What could be better than knowing that when we trust God over all other powers and resources, we cannot fail? I don’t know about you, but that is pretty awesome! It is awesome because although the Psalmist wrote those words from his own experience, we can have that same experience. God wants us to be successful, can use our success, but He can accomplish His will with or without us. The fact that He chooses to include us in what He is doing is amazing. I heard this statement on the radio this weekend, "God does not need our success, but He wants our surrender " In our success driven culture, this is something to think about. Success means nothing to God outside of a surrendered life. But surrender ABSOLUTELY equals success...this verse proves it! Our "success" may not be defined by the standards most people hold to, but God's standard is all that matters. In comparison to the resources and things society calls powerful, we may not appear to be rising up and standing firm, but when we trust fully in God, in His eyes we are giants! Trust Him!
Victorious In His name,
