Forget to Thank to Your Defeat

praisePsalm 107 starts off with, “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever.” Quite normal for a Psalm. It’s what comes next that’s of great interest for the mindset of healthy and victorious Jesus believer.
The author talks about five cycles of victory-defeat-thanks. I thought about this as I prayer walked today. Why do we have these tremendous ups and downs? The answer was in the Psalm itself. “Whoever is wise, let him heed these things, and consider the great love of the LORD.” We tend to forget what our God has done for us and instead focus on ourselves – schedules, routines, wants, desires, etc.
The person who wants victory will remember what happened the last time they strayed from God’s victorious path – defeat; and then, commit to give thanks daily for all the good God has done for and how much He loves them.
May I make a suggestion? Right now, stand up and spend at least two minutes thanking your God for His love and what He’s already done for you.
