The dictionary defines victorious as triumphant. I envision a massive wave of cheering…an energetic celebration following a BIG win. THAT’S a LOT of energy. Is it even possible to keep that level of triumph up day after day?!
My eyes fell to a frequently asked question below that definition to this sentence. ‘You use the word victorious to describe someone who has won a victory in a struggle, war or competition’. Well, my goodness, wouldn’t you agree that, every day you and I are faced with at least one struggle! Some days we are definitely feeling as though we are at war with our spouse, our kids, our parents…ourselves! And should we even bring up the competition factor?! If we’re not competing with our co-workers or our neighbors we are absolutely competing for the fast lane on the highway or the parking space up front!
EVERY DAY…there is a struggle, a battle for our heart, our mind and soul. But listen to what 1 Corinthians 15:57 declares over you and I. “Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Because He is the same yesterday, today and forever…I believe that promise is for today, and tomorrow and the next day…. and God GIVES US the victory! Don’t miss those two words in His promise. We can get up this morning and thank God for the victory. Expect the victory. Watch for it! And when we receive it through Christ…we celebrate and thank Him again! Because Jesus triumphed…so can we!
What does God say about you? You are victorious.
