“And the men of Israel and of Judah arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines, until thou come to the valley, and to the gates of Ekron. . .” I Samuel 17:52a
After David killed the giant Goliath, the armies of Israel rushed forward in pursuit of the Philistines, shouting and praising God for the victory! It must have been a glorious time. Rejoicing is a natural byproduct of victory; but herein lies another key to killing giants.
When you experience a VICTORY, rejoice your way to the NEXT VICTORY. Get in forward motion and do not stop! There are lots of battles to be won. . . lots of victories up ahead. Let the momentum of today’s victory help you to deal with some of the other enemies in the land.
The Apostle Paul said it this way in Philippians 3:13 (NIV): “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Now that you have tasted victory, REJOICE your way forward toward the goal line.
“Dear Commander, I once marched to a different drumbeat and found myself on the losing side. Today, Your bugle has sounded in my ears. I have decided to march in step with You. Let’s go forward to the next victory. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
