I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple, (Isaiah 6:1). I love the imagery of this verse, when it was written it was customary for kings who won a battle to cut a piece of their opponents robe off and they would sew it onto their own robe. The longer the robe, the more victorious that king was in battle. 

In this vision Isaiah sees Jesus sitting on a throne, seated in the position of power and authority and His robe wasn’t just long, it filled the temple. We can all look back and see how Jesus has shown up in our lives in so many miraculous ways, but when we walk through a trial how many of us have forgotten that Jesus is still seated on the throne and is all powerful? That He will be victorious this time just like all of the times before? 

I have been guilty of forgetting about the authority and power Jesus has. I have forgotten about His faithfulness. I have forgotten about His provision. I have forgotten about His love. When I forget, I no longer see with eyes of hope or with clarity. At times life has gotten too hard and I project my weaknesses onto Him, I minimize the way I will call on Him to help me because my perspective of Him is inaccurate. I would believe that this battle was too hard to win, even for Him. Often times I will want to just lay down and quit. 

We need to ensure we see Jesus exalted above every battle we face, sitting in a place of extravagant victory. He has not left you here to fight for yourself, in fact He already has your victory attached to His robe. 

When we have Jesus fighting our battles for us we don’t have to fear the outcome, we are always going to be victorious. Sometimes we don’t see the victory right away, sometimes the battle rages longer than we would like, sometimes we have to stand in faith and wait but in those moments we need to remember Jesus has already gone before us and has already made a way where there appears to be no way. For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory, (Deuteronomy 20:4).
