Remember Your Victories

 

(1 Chronicles 14:2) “David realized that the LORD was affirming him as king over Israel, and that his government was being exalted in order to benefit his people Israel.”

(vs 11) “So David went out to Baal-perazim and defeated the Philistines there. David observed, ‘Like an overwhelming flood, God has overwhelmed my enemies, using me to do it.” That’s why that place is called Baal-perazim.’

(vs 14-15) “When David asked God about it, God told him, ‘Don’t directly attack them. Instead, go around them and come up against them opposite those balsam trees. When you hear the sound of marching coming from the tops of the balsam trees, then go out to battle, because God will have gone out ahead of you to destroy the Philistine army.’”

 

 

 

Whenever we face a trial in life, we so easily seem to forget how far we have made it. We seem to ignore how God has taught us, guided us, empowered us, and answered our prayers. We forget what God has spoken over us in the Bible and all the spiritual power and authority we have been given through the name of Jesus. Even if you started late in life getting serious about God, there is so much you have already achieved in life just by doing what is right and not giving up when things got tough.

King David was up against a very strong opponent and he, first of all, had to remind himself who he was in God and what God had chosen him for. He was not just any ruler or king, he was the chosen and anointed king of Israel, God’s chosen nation. God had helped him to kill a lion with his own bear hands, and defeat Goliath with just a sling and a stone.

Next, he did his part as king and went on to battle defeating the enemy and giving God all the glory. David recognized God’s miracle and how God used him to achieve victory. This recognition was not just a personal one, but he publically named that place to remind everyone of what God had done.

And finally, instead of taking God for granted and thinking that He could continue without God, or that God would repeat the same miracle, He waited and asked God before the next battle. In the first battle, David had to fight, but in the second one, God went ahead and destroyed the enemy for him. By asking God first, David saved himself a lot of time, sweat and suffering.

There is so much we can learn from this attitude of David of being completely dependent on God and His voice. We need to be in constant communication and submission to Him if we want to overcome all obstacles. We need to remember all our past victories and testify to every one about it. It’s not a question of doing something, but doing exactly what God is instructing you to do.

 

 

You can´t do God’s part for your miracle, and He definitely won´t do yours. Therefore, you better start doing something if you want to receive your breakthrough.
