God wants you to win
Some of you need to hear this today. You need to write it down someplace you’ll see it regularly. You need to say it to yourself constantly and to others. God wants you to win. He wants you to overcome and he wants you to succeed. We spend so much of our time worried that God is not for us but the truth is God wants victory for you. He brought it to you from the cross. He gave his life so you could have it. He wants you to be victorious. God wants you to win.
Now the problem comes with how we get to victory and what victory looks like. God knows more and he knows better than we do. Our idea of victory is rarely his idea of victory. The people of Israel expected Jesus to show up as a king who would kill and destroy their political oppressors. Jesus showed up as an infant ready to destroy the oppression of sin and death. Jesus was planning victory, they just didn’t see it. Some of you, you need to know that God’s planning your victory. He wants you to win, and if we trust what he is doing in our life he will bring it to pass.
