Lord, will I ever achieve a life of victory?
My Child, a life of victory results from living each day as I lead you while touching those lives I place in front of you. In fact, a life of victory doesn’t necessarily mean fortune or fame. But it does mean a life full of peace, joy, and My love spilling out to others.
Actually, You acquire victory when you live a life of submission within the boundaries of My will that I designed just for you.
So Lord, is it too late for me to start a ministry? After all, I am 69.
No My Child, it’s never too late. As long as you’re on Earth, you have a ministry.
Tell me Lord, what does Your heart cry over?
Child, specifically My heart cries over those who reject My love. They’re perishing. They are hurting each other and they’re suffering too.
So Lord, what can I do about it?
My Child, to begin with, pray for them. Satan’s focus is to keep you and all of My children defeated, ashamed, and afraid. Overall his goal is to steal, kill, and destroy.
But your prayers strengthens My army and can help bring about his defeat.
Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 18:18)
Well Lord, . . . what else do You want me to do?
My Child, you dream of “big”. But what if I have called you to “small”?
Lord, I want what You want. After all, I don’t know which way to go or what to do? For now, I so confused.
Child, overall Satan’s plan is to keep you defeated and rob you of your influence of others. You do influence others. Yes, you do.
Just seek My will and I’ll lead you. Everyday that you walk in My will is a day of victory for you.
After all, victory doesn’t mean fortune, fame, or a following. Victory is living each day in submission to My will as I lead you, touching those lives I place in front of you. That, My child, is victory.
Victory is not a goal achieved. It is knowing you are in My will, doing what you are called to do.
So Lord, what have You called me to do? Because I’m so confused now. And I really don’t know what to think or do.
Child, this is why I want you to focus on seeking My Presence this week. I want center place in your heart.
Lord, lead me and guide me this day so that I have victory in knowing I have completed Your will for me. I want to know that I know I have done Your will for this day.
Child, quit looking at your past. Quit focusing on what you consider to be your failures. Because you get discouraged when you focus on your failures.
That’s why I want you focused on Me, for I am your encouragement. I have planned your victory, because I am your victory.
You’ve heard of the Midas touch. Well, . . .I am the victory touch. In fact I bring victory to all who invite Me into their lives for I am victory.
