That's a phrase we hear every four years, "There's still a path to victory." We hear this phrase countless times on the evening of presidential election nights and in this year's case, the week of election night. "There's still a path to victory." It's often used in the context of the small, seemingly impossible, against all odds chance that a particular candidate could still win the highest office in the land.
This morning I've been finishing up a book by Jim Burns entitled, "Doing Life with your Adult Children" and I came across this phrase, "Our children need to know that no matter what road they travel, there's a path that leads home, and there will always be a welcome mat out for them." As I read that phrase my heart skipped a beat and my mind suddenly became aware of the power of that statement for every man, woman and child on the face of the planet. There is a path to victory for your life.
You are not alone.
Deuteronomy 20:4 (NASB) says, "For the Lord your God is the One who is going with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you."
Choose to walk with Him.
1 John 5:4 (NASB) says, "For whoever has been born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith."
You can have victory.
John 16:33 (NASB) says, "These things I have spoken to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
Do not count yourself out. Count yourself as one of God's chosen ones and believe that what He tells us in His Word can and will come to pass in your life. Regardless of your current state, regardless of how behind you feel like you are in the race of life, regardless of the odds you feel are stacked against you, YOU CAN HAVE VICTORY IN CHRIST JESUS.
Be encouraged and keep moving forward.
