"Lord, it is sometimes hard for us to see our victories, but we know that they are there. Thank You that Your Word tells us so clearly that together with You, we stand on victory ground."
We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.
2 Cor. 4:7
