Sometimes we meet people for a reason and a season.
I work Sundays. That means I miss church. But fortunately for me, another Christian who works in my adjoining office brings in her gospel music and I listen sing the inspiring words. Good for us, we are the only two in there.
Yesterday, we had one of those conversations. The kind you know God has orchestrated. This woman went through a terrible financial time but is coming out on the other side. I'm not sure how her words started but somewhere in this conversation, the Lord tugged at my heart.
Maybe it was when she said she declared God's victory over her struggles during her battle. She let go of her doubts and believed that God had a better plan for her and she would get there.
I thought about my own spiritual condition. Yeah, doubt after doubt rules my days. I was good for the first year after my husband lost his job but at the beginning of year four, I sometimes think maybe this is what life will be for us. Forever. I've given up on God's promises. I'm not claiming victory over the trials that are tormenting us.
Because it's hard.And because it is easier to give up.
Someone on my last post commented that I had to trust my readers. So today I am by writing this.
I'm declaring that God has already won this battle in my life and I am choosing to believe it today. And tomorrow. And the next. When I fall again, (oh I will) I want to be able to come back to this post and be reminded of my words.
So how's your spiritual meter today? Are you declaring him the Victor in all things?
