- Matthew 9:27 (MSG) Jesus said to them, “Do you really believe I can do this?” They said, “Why, yes, Master!”
God wants you to win. Before you do anything this week I want you to know that up front. Further, when I talk about “winning” I am not talking about a contest or ball game but rather the real issues and battles of your life. Jesus said, “Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.” The implication is that through his victory we too can be victorious.
My reason for pointing this out is that I want you to approach this week with the correct expectations. The temptation is to begin the week with a “blue Monday” mindset that sets a downward trend for the rest of the week. Matter of fact, if we are not careful we can develop a “blue life” mindset. If you approach your life expecting the worst, guess what, you will not be disappointed. However, if you approach life expecting to win, guess what, you will not be disappointed.
I am not saying that it will be easy or happen quickly, but I am saying that if you face each day knowing that God is on your side then ultimately, no matter what happens to you or around you, you will win!
Remember: God is the way-maker and he will make a way no matter what you face. So this week, when tough times come, say to yourself, “I can do this…through Christ who strengthens me.”
