“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:57,58
Isn’t it wonderful to know that God promises to always lead us into victory? That means no matter what you are facing today, no matter what’s going on in the world around you. You should constantly be thanking God, no matter what anyone says, since victory is always on the way!
When things don’t look good in the natural, remember, we serve a supernatural God. You can always plan for growth when God leads you to success. You can make preparations for repair. You can make preparations for a comeback, and you can plan for victory because He is leading and guiding you in Jesus’ name.
You feel like you’re at a disadvantage, being overlooked. No, the One that matters has His eyes on you. The One that controls the universe, the One that turns people’s hearts, He’s watching over you, He’s working out His plan for your life.
A lot of people give up too easily. You are closest to your victory when you face the greatest opposition.
Too many people go through life thinking somebody owes them something but God never promised that life would be fair. Just stay in faith and He will take what’s meant for your harm and use it to your advantage.
When you’re in a situation that seems impossible, instead of being discouraged, get ready—you’re in perfect position for God to show out in your life. He’s setting you up to show you His favor in amazing ways.
Fear creeps in when we forget that God is with us and begin striving and struggling to do things in our human strength. Remember that God said over and over to many of His servants, “Fear not, for I am with you.”
Thank God for what He has already done. Be strong and confident, knowing that the answer is on the way.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Heavenly Father, I give You thanks and praise today for the promise of victory. Give me Your vision for the future so that I can move confidently into the abundant life You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
