I read a quote on my friend, and soon-to-be pastor’s, blog, Tim Degroot, that really hit me this morning. He said:
We are not fighting for victory but from victory.
I don’t know about you but I tend to express the perspective that I need to work through things in order to gain some ground. I feel that I sometimes don’t just have what it takes to do this project or save that person. My mindset is often revolving around the concept that I have to fight for victory.
I am encouraged by Tim reminding me that I am more than a conqueror with Christ. I am fighting not for victory but from victory. The enemy has been defeated, right?
May we go ahead and take on a challenge that we believe God will bring to completion. His word will not come back void. Let us go out with that knowledge and from that, often-new, perspective.
