Starting Each Day In Victory Instead of Defeat
One of the reasons Summer can be a tough season for me to navigate through is because I can wake up in the morning hot and sticky! Do you know what I am talking about? My hair can be stuck to the back of my neck and my pajamas feel like I put them on with one of those storage bag suckers! Do you know the ones I’m talking about? You put six puffy sweaters in a bag, seal it and then attach this device that sucks all of the excess air out of the bag and renders your sweaters flat. It’s amazing and great for storage, but not so great if you are a person who feels like all of the water in your body got sucked out during the night!
So, how do I turn this hot, sticky seemingly defeated Summer morning into a victory?
I open the Word of God and let its Truth about me, bring me victory!
I AM FORGIVEN AND FREE NOT BECAUSE OF WHO I AM BUT BECAUSE OF WHO CHRIST IS!
“Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1
I am not only a beloved child of God, sticky, hot and sweaty though I may be, but I am forgiven and free from condemnation! The beautiful part is, my freedom and forgiveness does not come from anything that I have done. My freedom and forgiveness comes through Christ Jesus and what He did for me!
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
So, receive this free gift from God my friend, open it and walk in the freedom He has given you. No matter if you are sticky and hot through the Summer or refreshed and warmed, you are FORGIVEN AND FREE!
If that does not turn your day from defeated to victorious, NOTHING WILL!
