Morning all! Ps 21.1 says “How the king rejoices in Your strength, O LORD! He shouts with joy because You give him victory.”
Society teaches us that our victories are our victories when nothing could be further from the truth. When it comes to what we’ve achieved in our lives, our strength is negligible compared to God’s – we accomplish nothing on our own. Here we are reminded that everything we have, own or take pride in is a gift from God and a direct result of His strength and love for us. Self-reliance causes us to lose sight of God’s hand in the blessings we receive making it easy to get so caught up in what we want next, that we forget to appreciate and acknowledge all God is doing now. Let’s be deliberate about our gratitude and mindful about being thankful. Let’s make a conscious decision to rejoice in each and every victory God gifts us with as we expectantly wait for those we are yet to see manifest.
