“...‘God has broken through my enemies by my hand like a breakthrough of water.’ ”
(1 Chronicles 14:11, NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
In First Chronicles, David was facing an impossible situation. He and his men were up against a huge army of Philistines. This was a different time than when he faced Goliath. His army of men was greatly outnumbered. In the natural, they didn’t have a chance. But God gave David the promise that He would go with them, and they would defeat this army.
David went out and did just that. God gave them the victory. David was so overwhelmed with God’s goodness that he tried to describe it. He said, “God has broken through to my enemies like the breaking forth of water.” One translation says, “Like a raging flood.” Notice, David likened God’s power to a flood. He was saying, “When God shows up, it’s going to be like a flood of favor, a flood of strength, a flood of good breaks.”
Today, remember; what God did for David, He will do for you. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Your part is to keep believing, keep trusting, keep obeying and keep thanking Him. Trust that He will direct your steps and overwhelm you with favor and victory all the days of your life.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for the flood of victory that is headed my way. I trust that You are the One who will silence my enemies. I set my hope and love on You today and look for Your goodness in Jesus’ name. Amen.
