We’ve seen victories in the past. Trials, troubles, and tribulations came their way, but the Lord saw us through them to a place of victory. Like the ancient Israelites, we had our backs against a wall on more than one occasion, but the Lord opened up ways for us when there were no ways and the people causing trouble for us disappeared like Pharaoh’s army under the waves.
“But” say our verses for today, “forget all that.” The Lord is about to do something new in our lives that will make the victories that came before seem like nothing. The troubles are many and the enemies are strong, but the Lord is about to go into action on our behalf in ways we never thought or imagined were possible.
Indeed, the approaching victory is already there on the horizon. The Lord has already begun to create the conditions necessary for us to come through what seemed like a permanent dead end, a permanent banishment to a dry and waterless desert.
We held on to our faith, we did not give up hope, and the Lord decided that the time has come to show us the way out of all the problems. There will be a pathway we can follow so we won’t get lost and there will be rivers to refresh us as we walk along.
Then we will come to the end of the pathway and the victory will be ours in all its fullness. Our hearts will soar as we marvel at the power and goodness of the Lord. Our friends and family members will rejoice with us and give glory to God!
And we will honor Him by proclaiming to anyone who will listen that there is nothing too hard for the Lord (Genesis 18:14).
