Listen, y’all, we are not fighting for victory. We are fighting from victory.
You are already positioned in a place of victory in your life the task now is to station yourself there.
And we’ll talk about this a little bit more later, but stationing yourself in a place of victory and then realizing that you’re just going to claim what god has already given you.
Gideon teaches us that if we wanna win the battle, we’ve gotta begin the battle on our knees.
And, you know, the only reason why Gideon was able to, why mama was able to worship god in the face of impending danger, we find the reason why in what Gideon sent to the men when he went back to the camp verse 15.
He returned to the camp of Israel, and he said, arise.
For the lord has given, somebody say has given, The lord has given the camp of Midian into your hands.
He said to them, arise. He went back to the 300. He said, arise. Get up, get your stuff together.
We’re ready to go, and we’re going because the lord has already given the many nights into our hands.
He did not go to them and say, get out, we’re gonna go fight in hopes that we will win a victory.
He did not say, get out, arise.
We’re gonna go and we’re gonna expect that maybe god is gonna give us the victory Carmen.
What he said was, he said, get up, arise. We’re going in anticipation.
No in advance that the victory has already been won. You know how you win a victory, my friend?
You begin the battle on your knees, and you face the the battle from a tance of victory.
Listen, y’all, we are not fighting for victory. We are fighting from victory.
You are already positioned in a place of victory in your life.
The task now is to station yourself there, and we’ll talk about this a little bit more later.
But stationing yourself in a place of victory and then realizing that you’re just going to claim what god has already given you.
Do you remember when the children of Israel went into the promised land in Joshua chapter 1?
God is confirming his calling of Joshua.
He saying to him, you’d be strong and courageous when you march into the land.
And then he said to him, every place you put your feet, you will have access to.
I have already given the promised land to you.
The whole of it already belongs to you, but you’ll only get to enjoy as much as you put your feet on.
So listen, for centuries, the children of Israel were were holed up in a little small corner of Canon when they had access to the whole of it simply because they were too to go over there and step on that land.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t wanna be so intimidated by the enemy, but I don’t get to experience the blessings that god has already got with my name on it.
All it takes is you and I walking in the truth of what we know from god’s word.
Listen, there are over 8000 promises in the word of god for believers in Jesus Christ.
Did you hear what I just see? 8000, over 8000 promises.
These are things that are just available to us because we’re daughters of the king.
Because we’ve been adopted into the family of God, because they’re just our inheritance, because he’s a good god and likes to give good gifts.
He just passed on all these promises to us, my friend.
But listen, most of them, he did not place within our hand. He placed them in our reach.
In other words, you have to participate in the experience of those promises in your life.
When you are fighting a battle in your life, you need to know that the promises god has for you, the promises the word of god has already laid out for you in your life, They are already yours.
You’re not fighting for them. You’re fighting from a stance of victory. You plant yourself on the word of god.
On the truths of what it says, and then you go and claim what god has.
Listen, whatever you need to do to make sure this word is in your heart and in your mind.
I mean, that’s what you gotta do.
If you are a mother of small children right now and it’s hard for you to get this time and the word of god, If you are a busy career woman right now, if this is a difficult time on your job, if you’re busy in ministry right now, maybe you’re taking care of your aging parents.
And, man, taking all of your hours.
And it’s just a lot and you’re having trouble spending time in the word of God.
Listen, when you’re in a battle, you can’t afford not to have a strategy book at your disposal, in your mind, in your heart, ready preparing you for war.
You’ve gotta have the book open and in of you ingrained into your life.
So even if you have to do it in unconventional ways, I will tell you that for a very long time, how I’ve spent time with God is, because of these three little people that are in my life.
Sometimes I just write a scripture verse down on a 3 by 5 card several of them.
And I put one where I’m going to be washing dishes and one where I’m going to be folding clothes and one in the car on the dashboard where I’m going to be running errands and for 7 days, maybe 7 full days.
I’m just concentrating on that one verse. I’m just meditating on it, and I’m just mulling over it.
And I’m just thinking about it. And I’m asking the lord to use it in my life.
And at the end of 7 days, that thing is inscribed on my heart.
It is better for you and I to inscribe one verse of scripture on our heart than to read 2 or 3 chapters of scripture in a day, and we have absolutely no idea what we just read.
Do whatever you need to do in whatever unconventional ways to have make sure you know the victory that has already been given to you, to know what has already been declared about you, the promises that he has already send it to you, and then you fight from a stance of victory, not for it, but from it.
I wonder how the 300s perspective, those 300 men.
I wonder how their perspective changed when Gideon came I mean, when he had left, remember when Gideon left, He was insecure and uncertain and timid, and then he went down and heard those 2 guys talking about him.
And he came back and said, y’all get up. Arise.
We’re getting ready to go, get us a victory today.
I wonder how the 300’s confidence changed when their leaders’ confidence changed.
I wonder how when he came back into the camp with a smile on his face and holy anticipation burning in his soul.
I just wonder how it spread like a wildfire from the beginning, uh, the front lines of the 300 all the way to the back.
I just wonder how it spread.
And I just wonder what would happen If you and I left a simulcast today, and we went back into the frigid temperatures of our home or our work or our circumstances, and we brought the warmth and the passion and the enthusiasm of victory with us.
I wonder how things would change in our children’s lives, and in our spouses’ lives, because we go home and start preaching to him just because we go home and start living like the victorious women that we are.
We’re not steeped in fear and insecurity and lack of confidence anymore.
We are resting on the knowledge and the truth of our great god.
We understand that the victory has already been given to us.
You set the thermometer, set the thermostat rather in your home.
In your marriage and your church, you be the one who calls others out of the cold frigid air of defeat to the warmth and passion of victory in Jesus Christ.
Gideon did it for the 300, and you can do it for those in your sphere of influence as well.
So can I? We begin the battle on our knees, and we face the battle We face it from a stance of victory.
