Sit with your victories.

“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57

For a while, I had believed God for something dear to my heart. It was one of those things only He could make happen. Well, He blessed me with what I had been praying for, and after I praised Him and shared the blessing with my husband, I began talking about the next thing I wanted God to do. My husband said, “hold on, I think you should sit with your victories longer instead of moving to the next thing.” He was right. So we got down on our knees and worshipped God for what He had done for me. Tears began to flow as I praised God from my heart. We later celebrated with a favorite dessert and talked about what God had done.

My sister, God loves it when we talk about His great works. He loves when we take time to sit with our victories–small and great. Let’s not be in such a hurry to move on to the next thing, the next prayer request, the next problem we need fixing. Sit with it for a while. Get all of the spoils from your latest victory. Celebrate and “build an altar” to commemorate what God has done for you. What you receive from your latest victory will carry you into the next one.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for the victory you have given me. I worship you and praise you for doing what only you can do in my life. Help me not to rush to the next situation I need you to handle, but sit with my victories longer and bless you for what you’ve done. Help me celebrate more every victory because you are good. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Yes and Amen!!! It is important to praise God and be thankful when we experience a blessing or an answered prayer from our Heavenly Father. It also is good for us to pause and absorb the result. Especially because we tend to be forgetful when another hardship occurs.

  15. You know ,I caught my self doing this. But I thank God that I could recognize what I was doing wrongly. And ths world also confirms to me how much more I need to praise and give thanks versus ask.

    The Holy spirit ministered toe while I was in a tough situation last year and I kept asking.. the Holy spirit said to me
    ” if I do this baby girl you have something else to ask for ”

    Now, I see that God actually wants to praise more than I ask.

    Lord help me to praise more than I ask . And accept my praises .
