We want to be victorious in everything we do. But in our lives, we encounter battles in which we incur losses. There are times when we feel defeated and are defeated. Then how do we go about living a conqueror's life?
The truth is our victory is not from the battles we wage, but from the victory that Christ has provided us. As a child of God, we are not fighting for victory, rather we are fighting as victors.
“Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, Which cannot be moved but abides forever" Psalm 125:1
When our perspective changes, then our circumstances can. We must understand that the Lord has already provided us victory in all circumstances and these present struggles cannot detract from the eternal victory that we already have in Christ Jesus.
So the next difficult situation you are up against, remember the battle is already won. Not from our strength, but by the blood of the lamb.
Knowing this we must trust in our all-knowing/all-powerful God, then we will never remain defeated.
When you trust God, God places trustworthy persons/partners to work with/for you.
When you trust in the world, you are putting your confidence in its finite resources. When you place your confidence in the spoken word of God, it will release the faith which then sets in motion the resources in Heaven.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God Psalms 20:7
