Winning is Everything

Do you remember what it’s like when you feel the nervous anxiety before a big exam, big game or a big business meeting?   Imagine how Jesus felt, going into Jerusalem and seeing people crucified on the road as he entered.   He had to overcome some “what ifs” in his own mind just as we must.

In spite of the challenges we face, God has created you to win.  Jesus won at everything he did.  He defeated death through the resurrection.   His expectation is for us to do the same.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”.

 

God expects you to win, designed you to win, and provided the resource for you to win at everything.  The resource for winning is found in His nature residing in you.

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

But we are not left alone in our battles.  He is still the one who gives us victory as a gift.

Deut 28:7 “The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face.

As you face challenges today, you can do it confidently, and at peace knowing that you possess victory as a present possession.
