“With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.” Psalm 60:12
Jesus already won the war, but there are still daily battles that need to be fought. The daily battle between what our selfish desires want and who we strive to be in God’s light can be tiresome. We can get worn down trying to fight on our own.
But “with God we will gain the victory.” (Psalm 60.12) Hand the daily struggle over to God. He is the only One who can bring us through with a victory. He will defeat our enemies.
Sometimes it may seem that our enemies have won. We look around us and see other people “winning” in life who maybe shouldn’t be.
Someone who has cheated their way to the top, gets that promotion.
Someone who has lied to get out of a consequence, gets off easy.
Like in a Marvel comic, we don’t like seeing the “bad guy” win!
Have faith in the promises that God gave to you. Through Christ, every injustice, unfair moment, or struggle will be made right and for His good purpose.
Pay attention to what God is doing in your life. What others do or don’t do doesn’t matter. It is about what God is doing through you, not others.
Have the courage of faith that God will see you through. He is on your side!
Following the path,
