You Are a Winner!

 

YOU HAVE ALREADY WON!

There is an old adage that says that “Slow and steady wins the race”. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t found that always to be true! After all in about every sporting event known to man, the fastest & strongest person always wins and in doing so they are celebrated for their strength!

Did you know that as a believer in Christ YOU too have that same strength that causes winners to “WIN”? You have a strength of Spirit that no one can deny!

Read 1 John 5:1-5 (MSG):

Every person who believes that Jesus is, in fact, the Messiah, is God-begotten. If we love the One who conceives the child, we’ll surely love the child who was conceived. The reality test on whether or not we love God’s children is this: Do we love God? Do we keep his commands? The proof that we love God comes when we keep his commandments and they are not at all troublesome. Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world’s ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God.

I just love this sentence: “The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith.” Your faith! Your faith in Jesus Christ, your belief in Him makes you a winner!

The Bible says that “by faith” you have already won, and it also says that “through Christ” we have overcome the world! Isn’t that great news?!

THERE IS NO LOOSING FOR YOU!

Romans 8:37 (MSG) says:

“So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture”

There is no loosing for those who renew their minds to the Word of God! If you feel like a failure, look for scriptures on success. If your body is sick, look for scriptures on healing! If you’re tired, look for those scriptures that contain strength. You WILL find them! Everything you need has already been given to you… and YES! you have already won!
