He has given us everything we need to live victoriously. He has provided the guidelines, patterns, instruction that outlines the way.
Some people proclaim that the Bible is just a bunch of rules. Are there rules? Yes. But in ancient Israel they were not seen as restricting. Rather they are life giving, much like a letter written out of love, prescribing the way to success.
And that is exactly what they do. They point the way to succeed.
“You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees! Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands.” Psalm 119:4-6
If we follow God’s Word, obeying the direction He gives, we will live in victory. And one day we will stand before Him to hear the greatest reward ever given, “Well done!”
It will be worth it all.
I want to live in Your victory, Lord. Help me today to study, listen to, and follow Your commands.
