Breaktime: Finding the Win
Finding the Win
but you give us victory over our enemies; you put our adversaries to shame. Psalm 44:7
Another sign of victory for the Psalmist is in the shame of the adversaries. God provided success, and what often infuriated the enemies are the imbalanced numbers. The enemy often came into battle with more massive troops, and Israel would win through the strength of the Lord.
More often than not, God has to bring us to the end of ourselves before we reach to His hand for success. All too often we are bent on applauding our own wins, and we stop looking to the Lord. God says things such as
That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10
Weakness, hardly perceived as a strength, is where Paul found strength. When the enemy sees our success despite ourselves, shame often attacks our enemies as well. Friends, God uses the weakness in our lives for His good. Gods strength can be seen when we know there is no other way but Him. Success isn’t found in our power, status, or even wealth, but God takes the weakness in our lives and uses it for strength.
