THE GOD OF VICTORY!
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”
God is a God of Victory. The Church is not on the defensive, but has a banner of victory to display. ‘For those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow’ (Psalm 60:4). We see this banner as David went out into battle, for he reminded himself of God’s overwhelming strength against the enemy.
We see this banner in Romans 8:31 where Paul wrote, ‘If God is for us, who can be against us’ The nations of the world do not belong to the devil, but to God. His Church is the means by which the nations will be conquered. ‘Moab is my washbasin’ (Psalm 60:8) means that the nations will serve the Church. ‘Upon Edom I toss my sandal’ was a biblical sign of ownership as the owner took off his shoe and threw it down upon his inheritance.
How many nations are waiting to be claimed by the Body of Christ? Let’s get our shoes off and begin in prayer to throw them down upon our inheritance. Let’s life high the banner of the cross of Christ, valiantly defying the claim of the enemy over our God-given heritage. May we never forget, ‘We are more than conquerors’ (Romans 8:37)
Our Prayer Together…
Dear Lord Jesus, you are my banner and battle-axe in every situation in life in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
