Victory

In him, therefore, we stand. Thus today we do not fight for victory; we fight from victory. We do not fight in order to win but because in Christ we have already won. Overcomes are those who rest in the victory already given to them by their God. (Nee, 1957, p. 55)

We already know the battle has been won. We already know that all things are working together for our good. We see a lot of battles~ and it's sure not fun to be in the midst of them~ but what a great comfort to know how it will end!

Your thoughts were my thoughts when, after a particularly bad day with Marissa, I read:

“But, oh my soul, don’t be discouraged. Don’t be upset. Expect God to act! For I know that I shall again have plenty of reason to praise Him for all that He will do. He is my help! He is my God!” ~ Psalm 42:11

The battle is won. I will again see beauty!
