The Lord has a history of victory that is worthy of loud praise. May we be a people that remember and rehearse the victories of our God. May His history of victory be our meditation and our continued celebration. When we meditate on the history of God’s victories in our lives, in the lives of our friends, in our nation, and especially in the nation of Israel as stated in the word of God, it builds a defense against the enemy. The Lord has a history of victory that brings life, salvation, deliverance, healing, peace, just to name a few. When we meditate on this history, we are not as easily moved by the history of death and destruction the enemy has flaunted.
Psalm 98:1-2 reminds us of God’s history of victory, “His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him. The LORD has made known His salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.” The history of God’s victories were known by the nations, long before the World Wide Web. God has a way of announcing what He has done God’s history of victory makes the enemy nations tremble. Remember how the people of Jericho heard the history of God’s victory with Israel and Rahab told the spies, the whole city was living in fear of them. Or with Gideon, the dream the enemy had was of God’s right arm of salvation with Gideon and how the Lord was coming to defeat them, it says in Judges 7 the enemy trembled.
The history of God’s victory puts fear in the enemy, meditate on God’s history of victory, recite it, celebrate it, for it is a shield about you when the enemy comes with his history of death, debt, defeat and destruction. The enemy does not stand a chance, for the history of God’s victory is our current reality. Our God still heals, saves, delivers and He is going to put His history into our reality and the nations will know that Yahweh is God.
