I want a life of consistently walking in victory. No edging into defeat or occasional weary weaknesses. Is this even possible? Walking a life that is consistently victorious in the midst of disappointment?
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1
when I rely on God for everything;
when I trust in God for everything.
I see defeat in little things. God sees the little things as a little step on the path to great victory. If I try to measure the success of each little step—I will surely be disappointed. But when I trust Him from beginning to end of each of those steps taken, I will see just how victorious I am walking.
At times I get discouraged when little is shown for all the time and effort spent on some area of ministry or with a person. This is why God wants us to release all outcomes to His care. I am to learn from my time with Him and then again in what He shows me within the act of walking obediently the lesson He taught. I am reminded that it is about me and God—our relationship.
Anything that comes as a result of my obedience is His
and up to Him.
Results are not my life—Jesus is!
“Christ who is your life” (Col. 3:4).
Victory is mine as I trust Him to initiate . . .
follow through . . .
and complete each step according to His will.
Victory is in letting go of the process as well as the outcome.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world;
and this is the victory that has overcome the world
1 John 5:4
I need only ask Him,
and then let Him.
“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.” 1
