Sunday Reflection...

The last house my parents lived in before they moved into an assisted living apartment was on Victory Street.

What a great way to be reminded daily that "He [God] holds victory in store for the upright. He is a shield to those whose walk is blameless."  Proverbs 2:7

When I looked up the word victory in my Bible concordance I discovered a sentence that was recorded in four different places, "The Lord gave David victory everywhere he went." 

I'm not a theologian, but perhaps the reason God gave David victory everywhere he went is because of David's humility, submission, and reliance upon Him evidenced by his prayer recorded in I Chronicles 17:20. David declared, "There is no one like you, O Lord, and there is no God but you..."

Even though my residential street isn't named Victory, God's Word reminds me that no matter what situation I may encounter in life, victory is mine through Jesus Christ my Lord.

May God bless your week!
