Singing in the victory parade!

“He leads out the prisoners with singing!” (Psalm 68:6)
David describes God’s help as a victorious rescue operation.
God rides out with His armies, and comes back with His enemies in tow.
Those enslaved by the enemy are set free, and sing in the victory parade.
Israel represents the underdog, the oppressed and orphaned and needy.
God is on the side of the underdog, and will make things right.
This message continues to be true, and a joyful hope for those who struggle.
Satan is doing his best to mess us up, but he cannot beat God.
Jesus has beaten him, and has ascended to the throne above.
Paul uses this psalm to describes Jesus’ victory (Ephesians 4:7-10).
Having reclaimed creation, Jesus now graces us with His Spirit.
And with the Spirit, we are gifted to live and lead with Him.
The world may see us as weak and inferior, but we know better!
We join with David in delaring, ‘we are more than conquerors in Christ!’
I sense Jesus encouraging me to stay hopeful and joyful in the struggle.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, remind me of this truth – of Your victory over the Enemy and Your Spirit in me – when Satan is messing things up around me.
