I ran across this little gem yesterday and thought I’d share.
Max Lucado, in “Walking with the Savior” says of living victoriously:
“You get impatient with your own life, trying to master a habit or control a sin – and in your frustration begin to wonder where the power of God is. Be patient. God is using today’s difficulties to strengthen you for tomorrow. He is equipping you. The God who makes things grow will help you bear fruit.
Dwell on the fact the God lives within you. Think about the power that gives you life. The realization that God is dwelling within you may change the places you want to go and the things you want to do today.
Do what is right this week, whatever it is, whatever comes down the path, whatever problems and dilemmas you face – just do what’s right. Maybe no one else is doing what’s right, but you do what’s right. You be honest. You take a stand. You be true. After all, regardless of what you do, God does what is right: he saves you with his grace.”
1 John 5:4-5 This is the victory that conquers the world – our faith. So the one who wins against the world is the person who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Walk in victory today!
