Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph... (2 Corinthians 2:14, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
When you think about your past, what events do you remember? What memories do you allow to play over and over in your mind? In the Old Testament, they had what they called memorial stones. These were used to remind the people about the good things God did in their lives their victories.
Today, we need to remind ourselves to focus on our victories, too. Sure, weve all had setbacks, but when you meditate on your disappointments and failures, it only drains you of valuable energy. It steals your confidence and joy. But when you focus on your victories, it builds your strength and confidence. It feeds your faith. It gives you a reason to give God praise.
I encourage you today to get into the habit of focusing on your victories. Remember, every good and perfect gift comes from Him. As you praise and thank Him for His favor and victory in your life, Hell pour out His blessing on you. Hell open up supernatural doors for you to move forward in strength to fulfill the dreams and desires He has placed in your heart!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I choose to focus on my victories and let go of any negative experiences in my past. I bless and praise You today in Jesus name. Amen.
Oh really, Well you’ll pardon me if I don’t feel like Joel right now
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ... (2 Corinthians 2:14)
Today you and I are triumphant, not because of politics or man, or nations but because IN CHRIST we ALWAYS WIN. He is greater than all the nations of the world, which he calls "a drop in the bucket" (Isaiah 40:15).
Let's ask God to fix our hearts in a greater way on Him. He is still on the throne far above all principality, power and nations. We are still seated with Him in heavenly places above all things. Christ is above circumstances and so are we, because AS HE IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD (1 John 4:17).
