"... but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever. Selah" (Numbers 44:7-8).
Almighty Lord, who is sovereign over the world!
Praise You, Lord, for allowing us to be victorious when we rely on You and fight the battles in this world with Your name.
We learn that we can only face humiliation even if we have good weapons to fight if we don't rely on You. Help us to be victorious in this world by relying on Your power that is worthy to be praised. Help us to remember what You have done for us in the past rather than focusing on the hardships that are present before our eyes. Let our faith to go back to the beginning -- to our first love with You.
Help us to courageously rely on Your grace and speak of all the things that we experienced in You. We pray in Jesu's name. Amen.
