This is the time in our life when we have to make a decision to cross the finish line and obtain the promises of God in our life.Why? In order to glorify the Father God. In John 4:4, "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world." You have to see yourself crossing the finish line and winning the trophies in your life.
The trophies in your life can come by you overcoming forgiveness, bitterness, hate, past failures, disappointments, broken relationships, or even losing a loved one; whatever it is that is trying to stop you from crossing your finish line and getting the victory. It is time to be on display as a trophy for Jesus Christ in your life.
Second Corinthians 2:14 [AMP] reads, "But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph (as trophies of Christ’s victory) and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere."
Listen, I am not saying that you won’t have challenges or that it will be easy, however, it can get easier as you start relying on your help the Holy Spirit! Jesus stated in John 14:16 [AMP] "And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever."
Acts 1:8 Jesus stated, "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and all in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
We know that this came true of what was written in Acts 2:2-4 [AMP]. Wow! We have all this help, the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. You are not doing this all by yourself. The next time you start feeling all alone, feeling down and out or like a defeated person, remember this, Jesus was on the cross for you! He stated in John 19:30, "It is Finished!" Since He finished the race and won, you can cross the line and win too!
Become an unstoppable force and cross the finish line to obtain the trophies in your life!
