I Choose to be a Victor, not a Victim

worship

I know where the Lord found me, and I’m thankful to be serving him in Spirit and in Truth. We are troubled on every side; but not distressed. Why because we know who Jesus is, and that has made all the difference. We can wallow in past regrets, or we can choose to move forward in God’s will. In this hour, the decisions that we make will determine our destiny.

Have we not all had seasons when we wanted to stop fighting in this battle that is greater than we anticipated? The forces of evil are strong at work, trying to sidetrack us, to undermine what the Lord is doing in this last hour of time. He is coming back for a glorious church, his bride, who has prepared herself.

In the midst of all the preparations for his coming, have we forgotten why we are even in this wedding party? It was because of God’s mercy and grace. He brought us salvation, not for us to take our ease while countless souls lose their battles with sin unto death; but for us to rise up and take our shield of faith and the sword of the spirit, to overcome evil with good. Ephesians 6 tells us

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

As a church, we must decide if we are going to be victorious, or if we are going to remain the victim of our circumstances. When we walk with the Lord, there will be times when we will be tested. Do we have enough of a love for Christ that we are willing to uphold this truth? or, will we be like so many who have never quite allowed the Lord to heal their past, so that they can move forward in faith?

Choose a victorious life. That is where you will gain the strength to stand even when you feel like your only option is to run away from his presence. Even the devil knows that his time is short, and his only mission for the time he has remaining is to “steal, kill, and destroy.” Don’t become his latest victim; receive the victory that has already been won at Calvary.

I Choose to be Victorious

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
