Rethink Your Victory
What does victory look like? For someone going through a process of rehab we know this: it is in small steps, and a lot of times it’s internal— something that everyone else can’t see…YET. But make no mistake, as we step in obedience, and declare that the victory belongs to God, mighty things happen. Sometimes in our walk with Christ, victory doesn’t look like what we think it might. But through our praise and agreement with Him, things are happening in the unseen that impact eternity.
These words call us to worship and are full of assurance that there is so much more than what we can see:
Our fight is with weapons unseen
Your enemies crash to their knees
As we rise up in worship
When trials unleash like a flood
The battle belongs to our God
As we cry out in worship
The victory is Yours
You’re riding on the storm
Your name is unfailing
Though kingdoms rise and fall
Your throne withstands it all
Your name is unshaken
What hell meant to break me has failed
Now nothing will silence my praise
I will cry out in worship
The walls of the prison will shake
The chain breaking King will rise to save
As we cry out in worship
The Book of Daniel is an incredible story of how supernatural things that can happen when we join with God’s heart and make His way a lifestyle. Our obedience and engagement with God’s Word and His Will brings forth victories— seen and unseen.
In this book, there are so many interesting representations of victory— the fiery furnace (chapter 3), the lion’s den (chapter 6), and the battle of the supernatural (chapter 10). Once Daniel had intention to understand the ways of God, victory was won and angels were sent to fight in supernatural realms. Daniel and his friends had their MINDS MADE UP that God would have the victory. In fires, in fearful lion pits, in all the opposition against their culture, they wouldn’t move from the ways of the Lord.It’s an amazing thought that when we set our mind to God’s ways, there are things happening in the spirit that we can’t even see!
“Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your MIND to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them”. Daniel 10:12 NIV
Let’s rethink what victory looks like. Maybe you are facing fires or feel as though you’ve been in a pit of hungry lions! Regardless of what your circumstances say, you are VICTORIOUS… because the minute you made up your mind to come before God in prayer and surrender, He heard you and he’s responding!
Our victory may not be seen today, or come in the way we think, but be in faith— God is at work. The Most High is victorious and fighting for you!
Look at the whole picture with your mind and your spirit, and worship with us as we listen to Victory is Yours.
We are standing with you and know that GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING! We pray that you are feeling more hungry than ever for the Holy Spirit to do what only He can do— seen and unseen.
We love you!
