It is difficult for a lot of people to understand what it means to be victorious? Are our victories, events and moments in life? Or do we strive to BE in that state where we are always moving forward towards victory? Is it something we do and then it’s over, or do we wish to become victorious as a natural part of our being? An event, action or an outcome doesn’t make us victorious. Victorious is a constant state of being; it’s the direction we are taking for our life.
For example, a single mother who takes care of her children is victorious. She provides everything they need. Not just clothes, food and shelter, but love, patience and understanding. It is natural for her to do what she does, that makes her victorious.
A husband who goes to work every day to provide for his family is victorious. When it’s freezing cold in the dead of winter or scorching hot in the smoldering heat of summer, he still gets up every day, whether he feels like it or not to ensure his family is taken care of. It is natural for him to make that decision in his heart to do what he does, that husband is victorious.
A young married couple who is willing to weather the storms of conflict is victorious. If together they have decided to make a conscious decision that divorce is not an option and it is natural for them to love and respect each other and grow closer through the good times and the bad, that couple is victorious.
A student in school who has decided they will do what is right whether it is popular or not, is victorious. No matter what they see others doing, it is natural for them to make up their own mind that they will respect those in authority over them, they will be kind and compassionate to the hurting, and they will follow the rules even if other students do not, that student is victorious.
Be an individual, do what is right, stand up for truth, and know…You are Victorious!
