How to MOVE in the new season, Part 4

18 03 2016

moveThis is the fourth post in our series How to MOVE in this new season.  Today we are unpacking the V for victory in our acrostic MOVE.


“In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”

1Jn 5:3-4



Often when we think of the word victory it is in terms of defeating the enemy! If we look at the deeper meaning of victory we see it as an achievement of mastery or success in a struggle or endeavor against odds or difficulties.


In the story called pushing against the rock, (author unknown, which you will find on our empower page) we find a man was given an assignment by the Lord to push against theman-pushing-rock-up-hill-ok-to-use rock with all his might. Looking at things from the man’s perspective he thought his victory was to get the rock all the way up the hill and when the rock didn’t move he began  feeling like a failure. At that moment the enemy came at him causing him to relax his efforts to push against the rock. As he enquired of the Lord about his failure the Lord revealed “Your calling was to be obedient and push, and to exercise your faith and trust in My wisdom, and this you have done.”


God’s victories in our life look so much different than how we and the world see them. God saw this man strong and vital because of pushing with all his might against the rock while he saw himself a failure. Like this man, through opposition we will grow and our abilities will far surpasses that which we used to have. Our faith, our trust and our wisdom is where God desires you and I to have the victory so we must push on our own rock, which might never move so we see amazing and profound victories rise in our spirit man!
