From Victory To Victory


Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. -Psalm 20:6 NIV

“From” is a preposition—a qualifier of another word—and it can be used to specify a starting point in spatial movement or used to indicate a source or origin. Victory is both your starting point as you move toward seeking God, and your place of origin if you hold the right perspective.

Most of how you walk through life is based upon perspective. Bayside Community Church’s Pastor Alex Anderson once said, “You get what you expect, so expect good things.” When you are facing circumstances with a lot of unknowns, you can be tempted to look at all the things that could go wrong. Or you can remember that Christ came so that you could have an abundant life.

The second part of Anderson’s phrase says you are to trust God for the outcome. Trust is reliance on another, on their integrity, strength, ability, etc. If you’ve ever been hurt by someone before, trust can be a scary thing. God will never fail you. Even if what you wanted to happen didn’t, you can rest assured that God knows better and sees clearer and farther than you can.

Let go of your picture of perfection. Let God out of the box you’ve placed Him in. Seek God’s picture of perfection for your life.

Prayer Focus

  • Ask God to help you live from victory every day.
  • Pray for courage, comfort, and strength as you continue to trust Him.
