I had a great day out today with my granddaughter up at Culloden battlefield.
We saw how the odds were stacked against the Jacobean forces; they were more tired, had to run across boggy ground and were forced to bunch up because of high walls for example.
I thought about the battle that we can be in sometimes, the spiritual battle and I realised that we have the odds stacked in our favour.
Our enemy has the odds stacked against him and his demons as we have the Lord Jesus Christ on our side.
Because of this we are unbeatable.
Because of this we can be more than conquerors in any situation (Romans 8 v 37).
Because of this we can do all things (Philippians 4 v 13).
But you may be saying, “Vic how can you say this when we see Christians sick and dying?”
Well, I like to look at the bigger picture in all things and I know that at times it seems like we do get defeated.
But this is not the case.
Let’s take illness and death for example; the way I look at it we are in a win-win situation, as if we live we have overcome yet if we die we are with the Lord.
I have read the “end of the book” and have seen the “final score” (to steal a term from my beloved football).
Jesus wins and we win through Him, the odds really are stacked in our favour.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that through you I am more than a conqueror and can do all things”.
Romans 8 v 37…..Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us
