Victory Belongs to God View video
Psalms 76:1 - 76:12
1. God is renowned in Judah; in Israel his name is great.
2. His tent is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion.
3. There he broke the flashing arrows, the shields and the swords, the weapons of war.
4. You are resplendent with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game.
5. The valiant lie plundered, they sleep their last sleep; not one of the warriors can lift his hands.
6. At your rebuke, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still.
7. Is is you alone who are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry?
8. From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet-
9. when you, God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land.
10. Surely your wrath against men brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.
11. Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared.
12. He breaks the spirit of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.
Reflection
Acknowledging God’s Sovereignty (76:1-12)
This psalm is a celebration of God’s unparalleled might in delivering His people from the hands of an intruding army. As the psalmist recounts God’s judgement and victory, he reminds us that God is sovereign over all. Many of the situations we encounter today lead us to question God’s nature. Is God still the victor despite the brokenness that prevails around us? Are we allowing our circumstances and the current state of the world to shape our perceptions of God? God’s Word assures us that He does not change. His ability and willingness to rescue His people remain the same, and He has promised to return one day. Like the Israelites, even in seemingly hopeless situations, we are able to offer up our praise and thanksgiving for God’s saving work in our lives and choose to trust that one day, He will reign in total victory.
Application
- What difficult circumstances are you facing right now? Ask the Holy Spirit how you can pray, trusting that God will deliver you and grant you victory.
A Letter to God
Intercede Together

The World
An extensive study on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) carried out in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States revealed that in some inner-city areas, 46 percent of children suffer from PTSD due to having witnessed drug abuse, street violence, shooting, and murders in their daily surroundings. Pray taht the love of Jesus would heal the hearts and minds of these children and that the Gospel would bring peace to these communities that have been devastated by violence.

The Unreached
The khmer live in westren and central Cambodia and make up the majority of the country's total population. The majority are Buddhist, but relics of ethnic religions such as ancestor worship and spirit worship also remain. Although the Bible and other Chirstan resources are available, few Khmer have turned to Christ. Pray that God would soften the hearts of the Khmer people so that they would find true healing and inner peace through the Gospel.
