He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Victory For God’s Glory

Joh 12:32-33, 32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” 33 This He said, signifying by what death He would die

After His death, burial, resurrection and ascension, Jesus left His disciples and later believers to continue to lift Him up. Acts 3 as an example, vs. 2 says, a certain man lame was carried by the gate of the temple daily, vs. 3-7, “3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple (to pray), asked for alms. 4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” 5…, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” 7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength”.

What a great testimony, Peter presented what they had, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He proclaimed healing and right then by his hand lifted him up. Though they lifted up the man by his hands, it was Christ in this miracle lifted up. After the miracle, the man was not rejoicing over Peter and John, He was rejoicing over God, vs. 8-9, Says, “8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God”.

If you are praying for victory for any situation, if it’s not primarily for God’s glory then it’s man centered and God will not honor it. He has a concern for His great name (Eze 36:22-38).
