No matter how sharp our tongue, how bright our ideas, how keen our weapons, nothing gives us victory like the Lord. For even when we begin to make earthly strides, we can be taken down quickly.
Maybe not by human enemies... while those are always possible. We can be defeated by the enemies of pride, lust, anxiety, fear... and even wealth and success. For as soon as we think the victory is ours, alone, we have lost the battle.
It is God in whom we should boast all day long. His name is worthy of our praise forever. For whatever we have in our hands, whatever we have as ideas, whatever we have has talent or strength... they are all still from the Lord.
I thank You and praise You Lord, for causing us to pause, even in defeat. For these are the times that cause us to look up and remember who is truly the Boast-Worthy Victor of all battles.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
