Child, it’s true. It’s opposite world, What looks like defeat is actually victory turned around. Watch and see what I do. Don’t look at what you see in the world. Look at Me and you will see victory for I am victory. Therefore keep your eyes on Me.
Satan wants you to see defeat. But when you look at Me, you’ll realize, it’s all opposite world. He wants My people defeated and discouraged. Therefore he broadcasts defeat.
But know this, it is opposite world. Every time he broadcasts, it’s opposite of truth. I’m not losing for I am the Winner and I have the victory. So rejoice My child for I am victory and I always win, even over death I win.
So celebrate My victory. Rejoice evermore. Look up, for your redemption draws near. Look up and rejoice for I bring victory. Rejoice, My child, rejoice.
– – It’s so easy for me to get discouraged and overwhelmed at everything I see, especially the “news”. But God has told me over and over, “Don’t look at what you see. Instead, look at Me.”
Also, go to His Word. Every time I need encouragement, I can always find His Words of love, peace, and encouragement there. I even decorated a “Promise tree” full of my favorite scriptures. No, it’s not a Christmas tree. It’s my “Promise tree”, full of God’s Promises.
Last week, I was extremely overstressed. So I stood in front of my “Promise tree” and read those scriptures out loud to reinforce these promises in my heart, mind, and spirit. In other words, to build up my faith.
God’s Word always builds up your faith. Try it for yourself. I recommend starting in the book of John. But I love the Psalms too. Remember, God is for you. He loves you enough to die for you. Therefore, you can trust Him.
Look At This
When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my Lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord , so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2Kings.6: 15-17 NIV
Prudent people don’t flaunt their knowledge; talkative fools broadcast their silliness. Proverbs 12:23 MSG

Praise the Lord! For He has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. Psalms 28: 6,7 NLT
