Psalm 60: 6-8 God has spoken from his sanctuary:  

    “In triumph I will parcel out Shechem
    and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth.
Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine;
    Ephraim is my helmet,
    Judah is my scepter.
Moab is my washbasin,
    on Edom I toss my sandal;
    over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

There is a joy that comes from utter domination. God walks in this kind of dominion. As we face our worst enemies as mentioned in this above Psalm, God sees it quite differently then we do. While we are playing the tapes of getting whipped, God says, 'No'. 

Dominion is the extreme triumph of the joy of domination. That is where God walks. As we are deeply immeshed in the covenant we have on the visceral level, when our adrenals understand it, we will rise up in joy of utter domination. We now face circumstances knowing whatever happens to us painful or not it is all Father filtered. It is within the grid of his covenant. He has no lack of dominion in this area, in this situation you are going through. 

prayer for triumph

I bless you adrenals and kidneys, I bless your spirit in celebrating God's victories and being able to go through scripture and identify place after place finding where there is utter absolute dominion and the triumph and satisfaction of knowing there is never a need for God to break a sweat. He raised Lazarus in absolute confidence, calling him forth and he did. 

I bless you adrenal and kidneys to be able to soak in the victories of God so you will transform and frame a crisis from God's covenant perspective rather than any other perspective.

questions to explore

Having listened to this section Triumph, what are your thoughts and emotions that bubble up? How do you relate to what is being described?

One way to get covenant perspective is to immerse ourselves in the immensity of God. What kind of stories do you rehearse? Ones of defeat or ones of great victory? For every defeat you have experienced in your life may there be a counter victory story to tell. And you can certainly do so here.
