My God is…My Victor Proverbs 21: 30-31

Proverbs 21: 30-31

Are you doing a Victory Dance?

There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
that can succeed against the Lord.

The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
but victory rests with the Lord.

We know the outcome

Imagine going to a baseball game, bowling match, or any sporting event, knowing that your favorite was going to win. Others will battle against your favorite, trying to get him down off his throne of victory. But your favorite is victorious once again.

No plan can succeed against the Lord

The devil is continually coming up with ways to tempt us, control us and manipulate us. He wants to pull us away from our Lord. Satan wants to separate us from the Lord in the same way he’s separated from God. Satan knows victory is Gods, but keeps attempting to take over. But satan is the underdog that will never overcome the favorite. In John 10:27-29, Jesus says no one can snatch us out of His hand, and that no one can snatch us out of the Father’s hand.

Victory Rests with the Lord

Jesus holds the trophy. He’s the victor. He went to the cross to conquer death. Because He sacrificed His life, we know that our coach, our MVP has a perfect record. He’s going to keep having a perfect record, and nothing can stand against Him. Because we are His children, we too are victorious. It’s like we’re members of His team, the winning team. Because victory rests with the Lord, and we are with the Lord, victory rests with us too.

Victory Dance

I don’t know about you, but I needed these verses right now. Money is tight, and it seems like there’s always something popping up to make things tougher. We’ve been stretching the usefulness of the boys glasses, and my husband said our insurance will pay for their next eye exam in July. Kid you not, this was the conversation we had this morning. While I was writing this post, my son calls to tell me his glasses broke in half. We’re going to have to figure out how to get glasses without the insurance. We’ve already been taping the glasses, re-gluing them and basically anything else that makes my boys look like total geeks. I can’t tape them in the middle. That’s just cruel. So I’m going to stand in the Victory. Hold on to the promises of the Lord and know that nothing can stand against me when I’m on God’s team. I’m about to do my Victory dance. So – soon my son will be sporting new glasses, and may even get contacts. How? I don’t know, but God does, and that’s going to have to be enough for me right now. Victory rests with the Lord.

    “No one can snatch them out of my hand. . . ” John 10:29
    “Yet I am ALWAYS with you; YOU hold me by my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel,
    and afterward you will take me into glory.” Psalm 74:23-24 It is great to know that God is
    holding our hand. Saved to serve,

    A quick and amazing update. I was doing my victory dance as I called our insurance to get my son’s visit to the eye doctor taken care of even though it’s not time for his next appointment. They said if a Dr. sent a referral saying it was medically necessary, they MIGHT approve it, and not for 24 to 72 hours. I called our eye Dr. and she also called the insurance company. I don’t know how, but my son’s primary care Dr. sent the referral in, the Eye Dr. called and today only a couple hours later, they approved the appointment! Amazing!!! God is good! Victory Dance anyone?

    Cheryl, He certainly is! I am basking in the joy of knowing and seeing how the Lord provides. I’m telling you all of those groups coming together so quickly is nothing short of a miracle.
