Song

Victory is mine today,

I told Satan get behind me,

Victory is mine today.

Lord, we come in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Whom Alone is worthy to be praise, we come to Your Holy Mountain and we bow at Your presence. Father, receive us this day and let our cry be attentive to Your ear, O Lord! Have mercy upon us and be gracious unto those that calls You in truth and Spirit.

Wonderful Messiah, let Your death speak for us this day as we rest upon Your Holiness and may the blessings of God rest upon us in return in the Name of Jesus.

Unquestionable You are the Lord. Every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord. Release upon us Your grace to abound in every good work in the Name of Jesus. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness and make us epistles of Christ (2 Cor 3:3). For yea brought us with price; the death of your Son Jesus Christ on the cross (1 Cor 6:20), therefore grant us victory indeed over sin, every sins Lord, for salvation is of You. Lord also grant us victory in any other areas of our lives:

—that is, God’s righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ, to all who believe, since there is no distinction.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

They are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

God presented Him as a propitiation through faith in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness . . . so that He would be righteous and declare righteous the one who has faith in Jesus.—Romans 3:22–26

Because of sin, Adam and Eve fell short of the perfection God intended for them. Because of sin, the Israelites relinquished the glory they could have experienced as God’s holy nation. Because of sin, Judas fell short of the opportunity to be an apostle of Jesus Christ. Sin will corrupt every area of your life that it touches. Sin will cause your marriage to fall short of the promise it held in the beginning. Sin will cause you to fall short as a parent, a church member, a worshiper, or a friend. Every area in your life is susceptible to sin’s destruction.

The wonder of salvation is that God completely dealt with sin. He did what we could not do. Through Christ’s sacrifice, God, by His grace, offered His salvation and canceled the penalty of our sin. By His grace, He takes a life that has fallen short of God’s best and gives it meaning. He provides the opportunity to immediately confess our sin and to be cleansed from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). He mends a broken heart. His grace erases anger and bitterness. He restores severed relationships. He takes a life devastated by sin and makes it whole. He takes our failures and produces something good.

Only God can heal sin’s devastation. Only He can bridge the gap between His glory and your sin (Rom. 3:23). You must trust Him to do so. If you will ask Him, He will free you from the bondage of your sin, reestablish your relationship with Him, and restore you to wholeness.

Believe yea that I can do it? (Matt 9:28), for he that follows me will have light Jn 8:12. Are you trusting God for victory over sin, over any aspect of your life, behold He is able to make all things NEW just by trusting in Him.

Beloved, come to the Still Water and rest; and the Lord will prepare a table before your enemies.  For the Lord bare our sins in His body on the tree that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness (1 Pet 2:24). The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him (Lam 3:25).

Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him,Psalm 37:17 tells us.

It sounds good in theory, but I have deadlines to meet! And work stacked up at the office! And interminable family and financial pressures! And an unpredictable business climate that could turn sour without warning! And daily association with unprincipled people who are ready to scalp me if I stumble or miss a cue!

 So, how do I “rest in the Lord“?

 Perhaps this story will prove helpful: Herod, that egomaniacal Roman political puppet who oversaw Israel, executes James, the brother of John. (Mark 6:16-29)

 Learning that his murderous act gained the approval of Jewish leaders, he throws Peter into jail, for “trial” — and certain execution. The night before his trial, we find Peter chained between two guards, asleep. Asleep! Or perhaps more descriptively, “Resting in the Lord.” (Acts 12:1-11)

Now if I were in Peter’s place, I would be lying awake pondering some fairly weighty questions:

Has the executioner had previous experience at his job, or am I his first try at it?

How is his eye-hand coordination?

What is going to happen to my family?

But not Peter! He’s asleep! “Resting in the Lord!

My guess is that Peter, after innumerable false starts and failures, had learned a few lessons along the way about entrusting his life into the hands of his Sovereign God.

QUESTIONS: What circumstances are you facing today that call upon you to “rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him? (Psalm 37:7) Could they be any more extreme than Peter’s?

 And when you get right down to it, isn’t “resting in the Lord“fundamentally a decision of the will to trust Him with our circumstances?  With our life? And isn’t our refusal to “rest in the Lord“an indication of our stubborn determination not to acknowledge Him as the Sovereign King of kings and the Lord of lords? (Revelation 19:16)

Are you, in your heart of hearts electing to believe God sovereignly has your situation well in hand? (Matt 9:28) If so, then you, like Peter are experiencing evidence of that rest by an inner peace, the absence of anxiety, and a certain calm anticipation of the future.

And I conclude this way, though I work through The valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for the Lord is with me “HE IS MY ROD AND MY SHIELD (they comfort me).

Lord have your way in my life and make every crooked path straight and every valley be fill up and every mountain be made low in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
