This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Deuteronomy 20:4 (ESV)
Today I am thinking about how chaos won’t prevent your victory.
I had this thought because today, many will celebrate Cinco de Mayo, which is the commemoration of the Mexican army’s unlikely victory against the French. I call it the classic case of the smaller power defeating the greater power.
When I turn to the Scriptures, oddly enough, I think about the time when Jesus healed a blind man. The disciples asked if the man’s blindness was due to his sins or the sins of his parents. Yet Jesus responded that the man was blind so that the power of God could be seen in him.
The same is true for us when God gives us victory amidst chaos. Our imperfections and chaotic conditions, the things that we normally ask God to take away and the ability of a smaller power to ultimately defeat a greater power, all join together to showcase the power of God’s hand in our lives. The key is to make the battle the Lord’s. When we do this, the outcome is almost certain.
Therefore, the next time you’re struggling to see how you can triumph in a certain situation because nothing seems to be working and the odds seem impossible, think about these words: “For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.” Deuteronomy 20:4 (ESV)
