Victory or Defeat
This brings me back, to the article I wrote a while back “CHOICES”
As part of life, we face so much defeat in our everyday lives. It comes inform of; Illness, financial instabilities, etc. But our attitude at that moment, how we face those situations is what matters. We’ll always have things to battle with whether we like it or not, some will be bigger than others and others will be minor but how we handle ourselves in times of trials brings great joy to God (1 peter 1:6-7, “6 Be glad about this, even though it may now be necessary for you to be sad for a while because of the many kinds of trials you suffer, 7 Their purpose is to prove that your faith is genuine. Even gold, which can be destroyed, is tested by fire, and so your faith, which is much more precious than gold, must also be tested, so that it may endure then you will receive praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus is revealed).
When we choose defeat onto our lives, we are letting the devil win over us and we all know that he’s intentions aren’t of any good at all. Unfortunately we’ve let on defeat at one point in our life without even knowing so, for example; I myself, back in the days I use to limit myself to the best of my ability, there were times I’d given up on doing certain things with a mentality of “it’s not my thing”.
While I was working my college applications, some of my friends know this; there were times I could literally say to myself “Oh my, I don’t think I’ll get it or I don’t thing I fit the qualifications and all those other non-sense but little did I know that, that’s calling on defeat unto myself. That was literally losing a battle I didn’t even fight to begin with. But the moment I learnt that you either embrace or block your own blessings it’s up to you. Do not doubt your faith, or the level of your victory, think far beyond your ability because you are able, you just need to attempt it to see it. This verse shows us and explains to us the power of our ability (Mark 11:23, “23 I assure you that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him).
So chose victory unto your life and throw away the negativity in you, stopping you from achieving whatever your heart desires, in other words take a leap of faith and see how great our God is. Ask for victory, and victorious you shall see yourself, it will be done to you as you’ve ask and set it in your heart. THAT’S MY DECLARATON TO YOU ALL. Blessings
