Celebrate Early

“I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms-I’m celebrating your rescue. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers.” Psalm 13:5,6 MSG

When David wrote this, he was in the middle of a battle. He had not seen the rescue or seen his prayers answered yet.  It was a moment where David decided he was tired of looking at the battle and looked up to God instead. He decided to celebrate the coming rescue and fill his heart with the kind of overflowing gratitude that comes when you see the answer to your prayers. David just didn’t feel like waiting until he saw it – he wanted to celebrate the victory now.

You know what I love about God? He doesn’t mind when you decide to party prematurely. He doesn’t shake His finger at you and say, “You just need to wait until you see it with your eyes then you can celebrate.” No, that is the world’s way. God’s way is to celebrate before the battle is won, say thank you before you get the gift and dance in the jail cell before you are released.

Because the battle has been won on the cross, the gifts are on their way and the release has already been secured by Jesus Himself. It is time to break away from worry and break into worship, my friend. To throw yourself headlong into the arms of Jesus and worship Him for all He has done, all He will do and most of all – for who He is. He is Lord, Savior, Redeemer and the Son of God.

My friend, start celebrating the victory that is on its way.  You can’t know what the future holds, but you absolutely know Who holds your future.
