Oh, I believe He is a mighty God of victory
Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on January 20, 2010
No one likes to lose...especially me! I believe God has put it into the heart of every man to be an overcomer - to be victorious. Without Jesus, I based my very identity on how well I performed - on whether I was victorious or not. Due to my sinful outlook on life, I constantly walked around in a state of personal defeat because I had no concept of what true victory looked like. I could not overcome temptation. Jesus could. I could not overcome my failures. Jesus could. I could not overcome my human weaknesses. Jesus could. When the Lord led me to repentance by His great love - a love that did not depend on my performance or lack thereof - He showed me what true victory looks like. When I am weak, then He is strong. He is God. I am not. He is my Father. I am His child...therefore I am victorious because HE is victorious!
Take time to walk in victory through faith - regardless of what your eyes can see. Either we are victorious through Him or not. Think on your victory today.
...I take pleasure in [my] infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10 KJV
