"But thanks be unto God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." - 1 Corinthians 15:57-58
Do you experience disappointments, detours, false starts, and failures in your life? If you are honest, you will answer yes. Even in our Christian life and walk with Christ there are going to be times when we feel like failures, times when we are disappointed, and times when we are discouraged. However, you can be encouraged because God's Word tells you that you can have victory in your life through Jesus Christ!
God's Word goes on to tell us that because of the victory we have through Jesus Christ that we are to be steadfast, unmovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord. You can stand firm in your faith today because you already have victory in the Person of Jesus Christ.
There are going to be times when you feel discouraged, disappointed, and feel like giving up. However, you must not give up because God is not finished with you yet. The Lord walks with you every step of the way on your journey through this life. He never tires and will never fail you! Pray as if everything depends on God (because it does) and work for Him as if everything depends on you (even though everything doesn't depend on you). Then simply trust Jesus Christ to give you the victory in your life!
"Stand still and refuse to retreat. Look at it as God looks at it and draw upon His power to hold up under the blast." - Charles Swindoll
Prayer For Today:
