Text: Joshua 5:13-15
One of the reasons why the Holy Ghost was sent to us is to lead us to claim the victories that Jesus had already won for us, as the Commander or Captain of the LORD'S Host. He is the One Who leads us in our victory parade. Take note that I did not say He leads us into battles. The battles of our lives have been won and lost; Jesus have won the battles of our lives, while the devil lost them all already. So, we are not in a battle anymore, but on a victory charge. Colossians 2:15 confirms this when it says: "and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it."
So, as the Captain of the LORD'S Host, the Holy Ghost has come to "lead us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us, spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere" ( 2 Corinthians 2:14). He does this by unveiling the truths (realities) of what Jesus has done for us, just like Jesus said He will do, when He affirmed that He will guide us into all truth (John 16:13).
So, with the Commander of the LORD'S Host always with us, we are sure to always be on the victory parade to claim the victories won for us by Jesus Christ, through the engagement of the Spirit of faith He has imputed in us (2 Corinthians 4:13). We have the perfect Commander - the Holy Ghost, leading our victory parade. He always ensures our victory. All we need to do is to stick to His lead as we engage the Spirit of faith that is in us.
Keep winning daily.
Thank You, Dear Holy Spirit, the Commander of the LORD'S Host, for leading me consistently in my victory parade. I continually engage my faith, trusting in Your lead always, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
