From A Park Bench - Remember Your Victories


Joshua 2 9-11

(Rahab) said to them, “I know that the Lord has given you this land and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you. We have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed.  When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below.
  
Just like Rahab we can choose to believe in the goodness and grace of God in our lives. We can all look back and spend time remembering the great victories of the God in our life. Those times when the miraculous hand of the Lord just provided a way through the desert of life.

Whoever you are, whatever you have been through we all have moments and times when God just showed you his grace and mercy. In the same way as Rahab, we might have just heard of the mighty hand of God but when we put our faith in the goodness of God we can see the hand of God work in our lives.

Just last week my wife had a weight smash on to her right foot. Her foot immediately started to swell and turn black. She screamed out in pain and said it must have been broken as she could not move some of her toes. So I prayed for her foot and took authority over the foot and the sickness, thanking God for her healing In Christ. Almost immediately, the pain went, the swelling died down and she could move her toes. God healed her foot and I said to her, “remember this day, on 14th October 2013, your foot was healed”. This was a moment, a stepping stone, a point to remember in our journey through life that God has provided all the healing we need through his grace.

Now to some this might seem a ‘small’ healing, but that is just the point, there are no small healing In Christ. God does not want any one to live in sickness; he wants us to live in the fullness of all his finished work. We have an overflow of goodness and grace in our lives and everyday, in everyday circumstances God wants us to live in and draw on his grace. He wants us to remember the moments of victory, so we can recall them to mind and meditate on all he has accomplished for us.

See the goodness of God in your imagination, live in the fullness of all you are in Christ, thank God for all his grace freely given to every one of us in Christ and remember all the blessings and all the grace of God that he has showered on your life.
