Remembering a year ago August still. The feast continues.
Rather than wait until reaching a level of spiritual starvation, we're going to continue our feast of the Word a little bit here and a little bit there. Savoring each and every Word allows the richness and fullness to seep deep within our hearts. Because, sometimes we need to remember:
God is a God of victory:
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation and adorn the wretched with victory.
The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance and victory are of the Lord.
And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!
But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord
Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 2:14
But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere,
1 John 5:4
For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith.
