“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” 2 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
Was Jesus a loser? No, of course not. While dying on the cross, it appeared as though He was losing. However, when He rose from the dead with all power in His hands, and with a name above every name, it was clear that Jesus is a winner! You are a winner too in Him! When you choose to walk in love, hold your tongue, submit to authority even when you disagree, it may appear like you are losing. When people leave your life and want nothing to do with you and your decision to serve the Lord, it can appear like you are losing. However, God will always cause you to triumph in Christ. You are a winner and you must believe that for yourself! Whether anyone tells you or not, you must know it within your heart. Even in adversity, you are a winner. Even when you hear bad news, you are a winner. When David was hiding in the cave from an angry and jealous King Saul, David was a winner. When Daniel was thrown in the lion’s den, he was a winner. When Paul and Silas sat in prison, they were winners! You may be in a situation that is uncomfortable right now, but you are a winner. No matter how you feel, have faith in the winner that is in you. Jesus didn’t go through all that He did for you to live defeated. If you yield to the Lord and do what He tells you to do, He will cause you to triumph in Christ!
Prayer: Father, thank You for making me a winner in You. I have the victory in every situation because of You. I declare I am a winner. I declare I am victorious. In every area of my life, I win. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
