Win: be successful or victorious in (a contest or conflict).
We fight so many battles in life, and it can be truly exhausting. One after another after another, and sometimes it feels like we’re losing. It feels like we can never win, never escape it.
But read this:
1 Corinthians 15:57 says, “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Guys, we already have the victory. We’ve already won! And while we have to do our part, it says here that God gives us the victory. It’s not a question of “Will I win? Will I make it? Will I succeed?” but “God will get me through this. God will help me and support me. I already have the assurance of victory. I will win.”
Praise the Lord for that!
I know that in my recent battles, it’s seemed somewhat hopeless. But I find hope in Jesus Christ, and that’s where my victory is found. My victory will not be in my own strength. My victory will not be by how hard I work, or how talented I am. Victory is only found in Jesus.
Cling to Him today, and find hope in this verse. Victory is yours! Claim it!
