Taking Hold of Victory

David Wilkersonby David Wilkerson

God is not mocking his children when he promises, “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). And he is not lying when he promises, “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry … The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles” (Psalm 34:15, 17).

When we cry out to God for mercy and help, all heaven goes into motion on our behalf. It would be an incredible sight for our human eyes should the Lord let us see into the spiritual world; to behold the good things he is preparing for those who call on him and trust him.

Yet, when we are overwhelmed by circumstances beyond our control, we too often turn aside from our true Source of peace and victory. We rush to unburden our hearts to friends, pastors, counselors, and family members, searching everywhere for sympathetic advice instead of fleeing to the secret closet of prayer.

Because we do not have patience; because we live and act according to our feelings; because our flesh cannot endure delays; because we can’t see visible evidence of the secret workings of God—we do like the Israelites and turn away from Him to make things happen to please our flesh.

Oh, the matchless grace of God – to choose the most unworthy, the weakest of them all—to be His instruments. God’s promises to us are great and precious: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

God is still on the throne waiting for you to call on his name, so do not ignore the majesty and faithfulness of the loving Father. The Word tells us where the victory lies, so believe and take hold of it.

The Eyes of The Lord

"The Golden Key to Open Hidden Treasures"

"Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account!" Hebrews 4:13

God is . . . all ear to hear, all hand to punish, all power to protect, all wisdom to direct, all goodness to relieve, all grace to pardon, all eye to observe the . . . thoughts, hearts, words, ways, and walkings of men.

As the eyes of a well-drawn picture are fastened on us, wherever we move–so are the eyes of the Lord.

"For a man’s ways are in full view of the Lord, and He examines all his paths." Proverbs 5:21
