Whispers of Victory

“Victory in Jesus, my savior forever..”

This was an old song we would sing back in the days of old. Wait..I am not that old. Anyway, what is victory? I always thought of this big victory when I get to heaven. This seemed obvious to my young mind. My older, more mature mind realizes this is not the only battle we will face

I could have started with whispers of defeat. Or, how about whispers of the battle. Those both seemed good also. Victory jumped at me. I fight battles all the time. I lose many battles along the way too. The biggest one for me was the death of my husband. I know I fought against the darkest of hell that evening. My amazing and wonderful Pastor who stood with me through out the night at the hospital. The doctors and nurses where amazed at the quiet calm intensity of my prayers. The Spirit of God was tangible in that room. So too was the enemy’s spirit.

Deut1:30

“The Lord your God who goes before you, He shall fight for you”.

Every  day since June 27th 2014, has been a battle. A fight for what I believe to be right. The fight to keep a roof over my children’s head. The fight to keep food on the table, let alone stored in the pantry. The fight to keep relationships going. The fight to steer my family in the ways of the Word of God and that which bring honor to God and their dad. The fight to continually praise God for all that I have. The fight to keep my mind from the pit falls of PTSD. The fight to believe the good in people instead of the evil. The fight to keep forgiving the wrong done to me and to my family.

When you read this it looks really bad. I assure you — the devil wants to keep me thinking life is horrible. That life is not worth the struggle. Life is not worth all these battles — Did you catch that — the devil wants that — Not God!!

Jude 20-22 & 24

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. And have MERCY on some, who are doubting…Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and make you stand in the presence of His glory BLAMELESS with great joy,”

I have every reason to rejoice!! To trust in the God who fights for me!! Who enables me to stand BLAMELESS before all of heaven!! I will continue to show mercy (kindness — longsuffering) to those who are weak in God!! I will not stop..I can’t STOP!! I will continue to pray in the most amazing heavenly language. I will keep myself focused on the Love of God!!

Fight on soldiers!! Fight on!! It is worth it — It is more than worth it!!

“Victory in Jesus, my Savior forever, He sought me an bought me with his redeeming blood; He loved…”

  1. Another great blog Wendy! Spot on, it’s the Enemy who wants to keep us mired in doubt and fear. Psalm 46:1 comes to mind “God is my refuge and my strength, a very present help in trouble” and my life verse, Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I’m reading “The Search for Significance” a great book by Robert McGee with a built-in workbook in the back. He breaks things down so well, everything from man’s original significance to God, what we lost in the fall, how the Enemy uses that to harass and belittle us, and then how to conquer it with the TRUTH of God’s Word. I recommend it to anyone and everyone, as it corrects so many of the misconceptions taught in the churches over the past many decades and teaches us how God sees us, versus the world.

    Again, thanks for the blog, keep up the great work!
