“Victorious, all of Mine are victorious, including you.”
Lord, I overate last night. Why? Why am I doing this? I don’t want this behavior, I want to walk in total victory to show others how You give victory. Today I feel like a hypocrite. I’m so embarrassed before You.
Child, not only can you not control others, but you can’t control yourself either. So why do you keep trying? Just let go and trust Me. When was the last time you waited before eating to seek My will?
Uh. . . .
If you wait, listen for My voice to guide you, and walk in My directions for your day, then you will have victory. Quit holding on to what is not good for you, whether it’s unnecessary food, worry, doubt, or fear. Let go of all that is in your hand. Allow Me to take this weight of burdens heavy on your back. Give it all to Me. Do you remember your goals for this year, trust, listen, wait, let go, and pray?
Child, it seems you have wandered off the path and gotten distracted by many things. Fix your eyes and your heart on Me for I am your King and your Source of all you need, whether it’s finances, strength, wisdom, peace, or even faith. I can provide all you need.
For now, just focus on the joy of My Presence and allow Me to take care of all the rest of your concerns. If you focus on My Presence, you will be filled with My joy and that can enable you to survive the struggles of life. Being filled with My joy guarantees joy victory no matter the circumstances for I am victory. I delight in bringing victory to what looks like defeat. To the world My cross looked like defeat, but to Me, My cross brought victory, for I am victory. I love you, child, and I give to you the gift of victory, victory over your sins, victory over defeat, victory over worry, and victory over fear. I am victorious, therefore all of Mine are victorious, including you.
Don’t look at what you see, instead look at Me. How many times have I spoke to you about this?
Uh. . . .
When your eyes are on the circumstances, you see overwhelming mountains of possible defeats everywhere you look. But when your eyes are on Me, you see My victory and therefore your victory as well. For I freely give to those I love, who are Mine, a life of victory no matter the circumstances.
Yes, there is victory even in death. The world sees death as the end of life, but through Me, death is the beginning of life.
Yes, there is even victory in suffering.
Lord, that’s one I question You about. How can there be victory in suffering?
Child, I am there with them, right by their side. I am closer to those suffering than those who are not. For I suffered the greatest suffering on My cross and I know their pain. Therefore I am closer to those suffering and I hold them in My arms until I take them home to be with Me in Paradise. They are the victorious.
Lord, I’m ashamed because I struggle with cake, ice cream, and cookies. Oh, and credit cards too. Please forgive my silly , whiney, stupid ways. Help me to follow You completely in all I say and do. Renew my mind so it seeks Your will above all else, for nothing else matters. Only You matter. Lord, I want more of You.
Child, the way to get more of Me is to give yourself to Me completely. Allow Me to have control of all of you. Give up your dreams, your wishes, and your desires. Desire Me above all else, and I will take care of all else.
Here I am Lord. I give myself to You. Do with me as You wish. Fill my heart and my mind with Yourself. I want to be Yours.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 1 John 5:4
