Prayer asking for victory

We as Christians are always in an intense struggle and the only person who can give us victory is called God, it does not matter that we spend all our strength on it, if God is not with us we are fighting in vain. It is good that you put all your burdens on our Creator and I assure you that He will give you a great victory.

Our reflection today is found in Psalm 20:

1 The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;

2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;

3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.

4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.

5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.

6 Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.

8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

9 Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call.

The first thing is that we as human beings do not deserve the favor of God in the least, however, the sovereign God, regardless of our condition gives us a great support from the heavens and we praise God on this day for His great mercies.

We know that King David found himself in various extremely difficult situations, but we learn that God in each of them gave him the victory.

We want to highlight verse 7:

7 some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God..

In the same way we, although the world trusts in its weapons, in its governments and in all its pleasures, we have memory of the powerful works that our Creator has done, and we rejoice in them, and this creates an indescribable confidence in our interior.

Therefore, it is important that our trust be placed in the God of heaven, since from heaven is that our victory comes.

    Prayer asking for victory
    ==================
    We, the people of God, his children, by the fact we are a chosen people of God, can have a lot of troubles and attacks from the “covering cherub”, Satan, who was cast for his iniquities out of the mountain of God.
    (Ezekiel 28:16).

    He hates true Christians and he has promoted acts of violence against them, as we know from churc history.
    In his providence and his wise plans, God has permitted persecutions and troubles for men and women who confess that Jesus Christ is their saviour, redeemer—yes, those people who choose to be despised and mistrusted instead of denying Jesus and his promises.

    We can trust our Father, who hears us through Jesus’s name. He leads our lives, defends and sends us his help against Satan and his servants. As the psalmist tells us:
    “The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
    Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion”
    (Psalm 20:1-2).

    We can overcome our troubles and difficulties if we continue trusting and keep faith with God, by the force of his Spirit. And we can follow the teaching of the Scriptures, and believe that the Lord surey saves and hears us when we call to him.
    “Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call.” (verse 9)

    God’s people is a victorious people, if we pray and hope in the power of God.The Lord Jesus is our defender, because he has overcome death and sin on the Cross.
    He loves us and has mercy on his children in all their problems.

    “As it is written, For your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” (Romans 8:36-37)

    May we be people of prayer; and let our confidence be in the Lord and his power. He will help us in the evil day. We, indeed, are more than conquerors through Him
