Everyone loves a winner. O how we love winning and celebrating victories! We watch our favorite athletes or any competition and root for our team with much gusto. We feel proud to be identified with winners. Winning gives us a sense of pride and victory. There is not much winning happening in the world nowadays though. Instead, we are experiencing one calamity after another. Chaos, confusion, uncertainty and lack have become synonymous with the new normal. If we were to point out one positive thing in all of this, it is that for the first time in our generation, we have identified one single enemy: covid.

Christians also have one common enemy: Satan. The huge difference is, 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙬𝙖𝙮𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙘𝙤𝙫𝙞𝙙, 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙎𝙖𝙫𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙖𝙡𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙮 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙎𝙖𝙩𝙖𝙣 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙪𝙨. Our battle has alreadoy been won at the cross! Paul says we are more than conquerors in Christ because God has already given us the victory in our Lord. 𝘾𝙝𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙫𝙞𝙘𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙢𝙥𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙃𝙞𝙨 𝙫𝙞𝙘𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙮!

Being part of a victorious army means marching onward and forward! Not retreating but always making progress. The victorious Christian is one who perseveres. He does not give up. He finds joy in suffering. He is peaceful, prayerful and is anxious for nothing. He does not give up when he is faced with peril, the sword or nakedness. He just keeps going. When he is shipwrecked and finds himself floating or overwhelmed by the waves of life, he does not drown for he anchors his hope in Christ. He is faithful in seeking God and serving others. The lives of the saints cheer him on. He is fired up with his knowledge of the resurrection. He believes that God, Who did not spare even His own precious Son, is on his side.

𝗥𝗲𝗳𝗹𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗾𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀:
1. Do you see yourself victorious in Christ?
2. Are you living a victorious life?

𝗣𝗿𝗮𝘆𝗲𝗿:
Dear God, thank you for the victory that we have in You. You are our greatest Champion, our deliverer, our mighty God! All glory be Yours forever and ever, Amen!
