Reading Verse: Leviticus 24:1-23
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
In every competition, all contestants have the expectations to win. But, there are times when they must face failures or obstacles. Only if they get back up from failures and keep going will they reach victory. Victory can be reached only if we don’t give up, when we are not pessimistic or when we don’t complain. A conqueror will always try to move forward reaching for victory and will no easily give up facing challenges.
In this life oftentimes we face various challenges, problems that make us feel like a failure. In difficult circumstances, don’t give up easily. Keep your focus on your destination. Keep in mind that God has made us to be more than conquerors, and He always keeps His words. Even if we fail, don’t be intimidated and be optimistic instead; don’t be afraid or be disappointed because God will transform us into conquerors. A bad situation is a process to test perseverance and patience in reaching success.
We must be patient in facing each process of our lives; go through it all. Like Joseph, when he got a dream that he would be successful, the dream wasn’t become real immediately. He had to go through many processes. Joseph persevered and focused his vision on God until finally his dream became reality.
In life, we should have the winner mentality. It means that we have to be strong in any circumstance because God will give us victory. We have to continue our efforts and diligently work hard reaching our goals. In times of troubles, we should always get back up. As conquerors we need to have patience and perseverance. In God all efforts will be worth it. If we want to make an effort, God will bless us. With God we can reach victory
Whatever we experience today, keep depending on Jesus as He is our only hope. God will always bring us into victory.
With Him we will have a firm hope. Amen.
