Many people wonder when they will live a life of victory? They wonder when will life stop beating them down at every turn? The truth of the matter is that living a life of victory is up to us. It is all about the choices we make each day. We choose the outcome of our lives by every decision we make. For example, choosing to save versus choosing to spend on impulse. Another example would be, choosing to overcome our past or whollow in our pain and remain stuck.
The other side of this controversial topic is where is your faith in God in it all? Do you even believe in something greater than yourself.
Walking in victory is a life-style. We choose whether we are committed to it each day. We choose it by our friends, habits, daily routines, eating habits, exercise habits, spending habits, relationship patterns, and how we treat ourselves by what we say and do.
God intended for us to be victorious in life. He knew we would go through things but His goal was for us to overcome them. We overcome them through faith and belief that we are not our circumstances.
Walking in victory is not just a happy thought. It can become a way of life without strain, struggle, uncertainty, or fear. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome that has overcome the world—our faith” (1 John 5:4). This scripture illustrates that God has already overcome the world and through faith in Christ we can be victorious in our lives.
It is important to understand that we all struggle no matter how flawless we look on social media. Our stories are all unique and different. That is the beauty about it all. They are so unique that each story lends itself to help someone else as we unravel the story and walk in victory.
No matter what you struggle with or how long you have struggled the goal is to never give up. You are a person who God cares about and wants to see overcome every hardship in your life. You are more than a conqueror throughh Christ who loved you (Romans 8:37). You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13). You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God (Psalm 139:14). This just means He made you for a distinct purpose.
Walking in victory happens one revelation about who you are in Christ at a time. You can make it. You can start the business. God hears all the prayers you pray. He sees your passion to do good in the community. He sees your talents and gifts and He will give you the space to use them. Be intentional write down the things you struggle with and choose to tackle them one at a time until the lists gets smaller and smaller.
You are not your circumstance. You are victorious in Christ.
