Entrepreneurial Spirit Series – Victory

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ – 1 Corinthians 15:57

I’ve noticed for some time that the holiday season is a paradox.  What should be the most joyous time because of all the thanksgiving and gift giving is painful for many people.  People are grief stricken, broken, or just plain broke.  They are depressed because of lost loved ones, livelihood, or lifestyle.  Maybe people just feel blue because they’re lonely (sometimes in a room full of people).  For many something is missing – they missing thing makes them feel empty inside.  We’ve whitewashed and made everything so politically correct that the true meaning of the holidays is getting lost. People have a hard time hearing that the thing that’s missing is a relationship with Jesus.

What we have to realize is that no matter what season it is, no matter what it looks like in the natural, no matter who comes or goes in our lives, we have a king that victoriously sits on the throne.  We have read the last chapter of the last book and we win.  We should take comfor in knowing that we are already victorious.  As the song in the video proclaims, “my name is victory.”  The moment that we embrace this concept, the more we will feel victorious over the circumstances and happenstances in our lives.  We will feel more comfortable when we accept trouble as a part of life and embrace it as part of the fabric that is woven through all of our experiences.  Jesus said,

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16:33

I’m not suggesting that we love and befriend trouble, I’m just encouraging us to recognize it for what it is and to know that we’ve already won.  This means that we’re already victorious with the business, the contract negotiations, the important deal, getting the property, or getting the financing.  Whatever it is that has us worried, whether personal or professional, we can overcome it.  We are victorious.  My name is victory, what’s yours?
