God is honored in Judah; his name is great in Israel. Jerusalem is where he lives; Mount Zion is his home. There he has broken the fiery arrows of the enemy, the shields and swords and weapons of war. You are glorious and more majestic than the everlasting mountains. Our boldest enemies have been plundered. They lie before us in the sleep of death. No warrior could lift a hand against us. At the blast of your breath, O God of Jacob, their horses and chariots lay still. Psalm 76: 1-6 NLT
What victory can you claim in your life today?
Did you do well on that report at work? Were you complemented on your devotional for your study group? Did you finally get that job interview? Did your children actually thank you for a daily task you did?
Perhaps that medical test you were anxious about came back negative. Or you are finally recovered from the surgery. Has your marriage or another relationship improved because you have been praying hard and working hard for that?
Whatever your victory, how can you give God the glory and the credit? What words of celebration can you lift up to God today for the victories you have just received?
God, you are honored and your name is great! You have broken the fiery arrows of the enemy. You are glorious and more majestic than the everlasting mountains. My boldest enemies have been plundered. And the victory is yours, Almighty God! In Jesus' name. Amen.
