The scripture for today, February 7, is Proverbs 2:7 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.”
Do you feel like a loser sometimes? Once someone gets into that mind set, it is hard to break out. One dream after another has been shattered. One goal after another has been impossible. One effort after another has been a failure.
The world can be a cruel place in which to live. It is ruled by Satan.
But look up! Victory is still possible! There is an old song called “Victory in Jesus.” We may be losers to our friends, but victors to Jesus.
Just remember, we cannot have victory in Jesus unless we have something to be victorious over.
Life is hard. But each day that problems face us and we refuse to give in, that’s victory. Each day that we search God’s Word for answers in the right places, that’s victory.
Each day that we refuse to give up on Jesus despite opposition to him by those around us, that’s victory.
