Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with God-given, hope-filled patience:
For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright…”
I know this is true about You, Jesus –
I know You’re the only one who grants victory.
I can’t win
unless You make it happen.
I can’t lose
if You want me to win.
I know, too – You don’t hand out victory to just anybody.
It’s for those who are upright.
I’m trying to qualify
but falling short.
True, everybody falls short
but that’s small consolation.
After all You’ve done for me
You deserve better.
The only reason I don’t slink off in defeat
is because of Your biggest victory-gift of all:
triumphs over Your judgment.
So even though I can’t yet see all of it…
when You say You’re holding victory in store for me
I believe it.
