Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It gives principles and promises. It is absolute truth for us to walk in. Here is God’s promise. He has victory for you today! You can have victory in the big things, the small things, even the mundane. “For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.” (Pr 2:6-8) “No weapon formed against you will prosper.” (Isa 54:17) “He delights in the prosperity of his people.” (Ps 35:27, 106:5) He fulfills his purpose in you. (Ps 57:2) He gives you more grace. (James 4:6) Unmerited favor and Divine power not just to say “No” to the things that are not from him, but He gives His grace - which is unlimited power to fully do everything He has assigned for you in this hour. God has victory for you today! In football, at the end of the game, teams go into ‘victory formation.’ When the end is sure, and time is almost out. They have close linemen, and backs next to the quarterback, who takes a knee and runs out the clock. That means victory is already won. That’s what God has already done for you. What He has purposed will surely come to pass. All you need to do is stay in His victory formation, and follow His plan. God’s Way is a little different. What if you could start in that victory formation before the game even begins, so you make sure you do it at the end? You can! God’s victory formation is for the beginning as well as the end of the game. So what forms your victory? #1 Declaration, #2 PiVAT, #3 PRISM, #4 Praise, and #5 Prayer. Declare the victory that God has for you today. Believe it, and you will walk in it. Declare it, and you will walk in it. “God, I declare Your victory in my life today. I will do everything You tell me to do in this hour. I will set before my eyes no unclean thing, I will obey everything that You tell me to do, and that you tell me to say. I will follow Your plans, and come back to Your Word, I will praise You for grace, and power to do everything You tell me to do. I will praise You with my testimony! I will pray in the Spirit and with the understanding, for myself (building my faith), and interceding for others. I will give You glory for everything You do today. I will be watching for it! I will not fear, I will not doubt, I will not complain, I will not turn, only praise, I will be instant in obedience, constant in praise. I will walk in humility, and share Your love with others, as You open the door of every opportunity.” Declaration is powerful – it sets your course, it’s the start of your victory formation. You can declare in first person, in prayer to God, or in third person, just declaring to yourself, using the word “Him” instead of the word “You” – talking to Him in prayer. Praying that you will declare the victory that He has for you today, so you lock yourself in – to walking in it. If you make a wrong choice, either delayed obedience, distraction, or lost opportunity when the Holy Spirit prompts you… just repent immediately, ask God what to do next, go back and do what you missed, or keep going to the next thing He has for you – whatever He tells you. God can make up for lost time, and will give you another opportunity to walk in His victory for you. Come back to PiVAT all day. It’s easy to get off track, or on your own track, or do what you think you have to, rather that what God is telling you. Every day brings distractions, but if you keep coming back to PiVAT - His plans (double-check with Him, He loves the conversation), write the testimonies so far, of what God did as you just obeyed!) He will lead you step by step so you leave nothing on the table from today. So your progress is sure, and your joy is full. Keep coming back to PRISM – His Word for today - Soak in it – especially M: Meditate on the Word. Take that PRISM Topic with you – the one He told you for today - the power of God’s Word on a single subject. Praying that you will review the PRISM Topic - Starter Verses. That remind you of the victory that He has for you every day! Keep coming back to Praise and Prayer – with every change of venue, or activity today. Every time you are in the car, between appointments, come back to Praise and Prayer. It will keep your eyes on Him, and will keep your eyes open, looking for the next opportunity to overcome with your testimony, and help others discover theirs… To love others, with the love that God longs to show them – through you. Be diligent in every task He has for you, it’s the precious possession of a man or woman. Diligence in what He tells you makes the victory formation work. Redeem the time. Celebrate every victory, every good choice, every time you choose His Way, instead of any other way. And you will walk in the Victory that He has for you today.
