You are welcome to this great month. This year is fast coming to an end and thank God you made it this far. It shows that you are destined for greatness and that greatness will speak the loudest in your life this month.
This month’s article stands as an encouragement to you that no matter your expectations and how fast the year is coming to a close, your case is not closed until you decide to close it. No matter where you may be right now, or what your situation looks like, be assured that: You are Born to Win.
Life is a battle fight, and everyone who must succeed, must put up a fight to get it. How violent you are able to fight, determines the degree of victory you derive from your battles. Understand that: There can never be a winner without a fight. It is only at the end of a battle that you can boldly declare a winner. It is sad to see many believers live and walk without a sense of war. We fight daily, and these battles are mostly spiritual. If the devil is fighting against your progress, then it is Scriptural to fight back. The Bible says:
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14).
You are ordained to triumph continuously in Christ. That situation you may be going through is a won battle if only you can trust God for your victory. You were not redeemed by God to be defeated by the devil, you are born an overcomer. Therefore, no situation is permitted to defeat you. It is written:
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21).
And, the Scriptures say of you:
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).
So, you need not to be afraid of anything that may be confronting you. Rather, be assured of your everlasting victory in Christ. Take examples from Scriptures of those that have fought valiantly and won victorious, their battles. This should spur you that the team you are on is a winning team, so you are not permitted to lose.
For example, Job was confronted with the fiercest battle of his life. He lost everything he had and has ever worked for in one day. His children, property and everything were gone. However, he chose to trust God in his darkest hour. At the end of the battle, to proof his victory, God restore to him twice of what he lost.
That battle is not as tough as Job’s, and even though you feel like your whole world is crumbling before you, it’s the right time to fight the hardest. There is clearly no battle that is beyond you. If it was beyond you, God would not have allowed it to come your way. God knows your capacity as a winner, but you must believe in that winning Spirit that is in you.
The challenge may look stern, the sea may be raging violently, the storm may be tempestuous, but in all these things, you are more than a conqueror through Christ who gives you victory. Understand that the devil wants to use that challenge to separate you from God’s love, like he intended with Job. However, because you have made the right decision, like Job, not to be deterred, you will overcome like he did.
Therefore, shake off the dust, put on the whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:11), and fight with all zest against the wiles of the devil. Fight against every opposition to your glorious destiny, fight against every devices of the devil and fight against every temptation and sin. Your victory is closest to you than before, because you are born to win.
However, there is something too strong for the devil to break in you and that is what determines your victory in all areas of life. It is the God-kind of life in you, which begins with new birth. Therefore, if you are not born again, you need to do that right away. Say this prayer with faith and all sincerity:
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
