|There are times and seasons when we can feel our backs are to the wall. It can even feel like everything and everyone is against us.
The traditional Australian way is to just battle through. John Howard’s time as Prime-Minister was launched with the support of the so call “Aussie Battlers”; those Australians who are battling through life. We have this impression of people battling away……trying to make a good honest living and only having the odd small win.
There is no doubt we have seasons of battles and times we need to dig and push through. We shouldn’t be adverse to having a battle. I believe you were created to be a victor rather than a battler.
“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Romans 8:37)
Through Jesus you are not just victorious but “more than a conquer”. The mindset and thinking that our battles are fought from makes all the difference. Sports teams that regularly win, tend to have a winning mindset.
In Christ we can confidently have a winning mindset because we fight not for victory but from victory. We can approach our battles from a place of strength. You are not alone Jesus is for. There are so many people who are for you.
When the prophet Elisha’s city was under siege he spoke confidently about who was with him ,even when he was under siege; “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” (2 Kings 6:16). Then he prayed for his servant’s eyes to be open. In that moment he saw the level of support they really had.
To live from a place of victory we need our eyes to be opened to see and understand the overwhelming supply that is ours. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.
See you in Church.
