Not By Us, But By God

 

Hello, God has given me something in Psalms 44:3 which says,

“It was not by their sword that they won the land,
    nor did their arm bring them victory;
it was your right hand, your arm, 
    and the light of your face, for you loved them.”

Here the Sons of Korah are writing. They/he said that God put their ancestors there, and he made them flourish. The Psalmist said that it was not by their (the ancestors) sword that they won the land, but it was from God that they got the land, and victory. It was God’s right hand and the light of his face, for He loved them.

We did not deserve to be loved. We deserved to die and not to have the victory. But, we were saved, and the victory was given to us. Why? Because Jesus loved us so much, that He gave His own life for us and gave us the victory. God saved us, we couldn’t do it, but God did, He gave us the victory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_K7JiUEl23E&feature=related. At God’s right hand is Jesus, so Jesus is our victory!

Unbelievers are not trusting in Christ, and what He did for us. If you are not trusting in Christ, then why aren’t you? Come   to Him if you want to be saved. He will make you new if you come to Him. So if you want to be loved, and be given the victory, then come to Jesus, and He will change you, and love you, and give you the victory.

Believers should praise God for what He has done for us. We should give thanks, and praise the Lord, for He is worthy. Give thanks, and give thanks with a grateful heart! He has given us the victory, instead of letting us try to on our own. He has loved us so much! Thank You, Lord!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving me so much! Thank You for dying in my place on the cross. Thank You so much for changing me, and for making me new. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to grow in You. Please help me to have a hunger for Your word. Please strengthen me so that I may praise You more. Please help me to be more like You. Please help me to rejoice in You. Thank You for making me Your daughter, and thank You for all the blessings You have given me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse:

Beginning verse, Psalm 44:3,

“It was not by their sword that they won the land,
    nor did their arm bring them victory;
it was your right hand, your arm, 
    and the light of your face, for you loved them.”

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
