The Lord is My Rock – Day 10

Victory Belongs to The Lord
The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to the Lord.” -Proverbs 21:31

We fight many battles in a lifetime. The battle for a job, the battle against old age, the battle of the bulge, the battle for our children . . . any number of battles for any number of different causes. But, no matter how hard we fight or how much we pat ourselves on the back when we win, the victory is ultimately not ours. We win because God allows us to win. Our lives belong to Him, as do all of our victories. The purpose of our lives is to glorify Him. So, prepare your horse for battle, but remember that victory belongs to the Lord. Thank Him for all your victories today.

Though I stand prepared to fight for righteousness in my life, thank You, Father, that I don’t fight alone, and that victory is ultimately Your responsibility. I give You all the glory. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen!
