Isaiah 47:17 Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
Do not forget the source of your past victories. To keep creating successes into the future you must keep your eyes on the one who brought you the victories in the past.
For some of us we occasionally miss the real source of our victories. Israel was an example of this; they missed it so many times and had to be constantly reminded. They looked for their victory and success in idols: things that they made with their own hands. In some cases they even looked to other nations, such as Egypt, as the avenues through which they could create the results that they wanted. Without fail all these efforts always prove to be a failure and beg the question, what is the point? Do not make the same mistakes, look to the real source of your victories.
One occasion in which God sought to remind the Children of Israel where their victories came from was in Isaiah 48:17. God told them that it was “He that teacheth them to profit”. It was a reminder that all their profitable encounters to date came from Him. That includes them being delivered from bondage in Egypt, the crossing of the Red Sea, possessing their promised land. God went further to say that it is “He that leadeth them the way that they shouldest go”. The point God was making was that if they looked closely, they would see that their successful ventures to date came only because of his leading and directions. How could they forget that? The real source of your past profitable encounters is the Creator of heaven of earth. All good things come from above. It was His leading and direction that brought you the result you want to this point. Are you going to keep looking to him for the future you want or are you going to look elsewhere? He is the source, look to Him.
Life Application: Do not lose sight of the source of your victories by daily reminding yourself of what God has done by constantly putting pictures to remind you of what He has done.
Prayer: Lord, May I never forget that you are the source of my victories and all that is good in my life. In Jesus name,amen.
