DAILY VICTORY

(Part #3)

by David G. Rose

A few weeks ago, we started a series of thoughts on how to WIN DAILY: Finding Victory Today!

If your goal is to be an effective Christian that radiates the joy of Jesus, you must be resolved, determined, and remain spiritually focused. To facilitate memory, I have placed the outline for living in daily victory in the acrostic: V-I-C-T-O-R-Y

So far: 
V – Verify relationship with God every day
I – Invoke God’s presence every day
C – Cultivate your soul every day

T – Tame your ego every day. An example of an egotistical person is summed up in this statement by English writer George Eliot: “He was like a cock who thought the sun had risen to hear him crow!” 

Ego is commonly defined as a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance. Many egocentric people spend their lives grooming, strengthening, and parading their ego. They are the cock that crows.

But the victorious Christian follows a different path. The Apostle Paul taught in 1 Corinthians 15:31 ESV, “I protest, brothers, by my pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die every day!” The concept of dying daily to our ego and pride is contrary to what the world teaches. 

Basic principles of success in the world include stepping on others, pushing yourself, and exerting your influence at the expense of others. But Jesus taught that the way to real life is to die to self and to live for Christ: “Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” (John 12:25 ESV)

Christ calls for a daily funeral of the ego. The challenge is to die to pride, envy resentment and self-praise. Someone said that “Christ can live in us in direct proportion to our willingness to die to ourselves.” John the Baptist humbled himself and said about Jesus, “He must increase but I must decrease.” (John 3:30 KJV)

Taming the ego is a fulltime job. A friend used to say that egotism is obesity of the head! Cemeteries are full of people that were convinced that the world could not live without them. But here we are! Life goes on and yet, people still wreck their relationship with God and their families feed their ego and exhibit their pride. 

Let me end with this thought on the ego with this incredible verse found in Proverbs 11:2 (Amplified Version) – “When pride comes [boiling up with an arrogant attitude of self-importance], then come dishonor and shame, But with the humble [the teachable who have been chiseled by trial and who have learned to walk humbly with God] there is wisdom and soundness of mind.”

This verse is a warning to each of us to die daily, and to give praise and adoration to Christ Jesus alone. May we choose the example of John the Baptist and Christ Himself, who humbled themselves to be a servant of all. 

Next week: O – Obedient in witness

Seven times a day

SCRIPTURE

& PRAYER

Psalm 119:161-168 NLT- Powerful people harass me without cause, but my heart trembles only at your word. I rejoice in your word like one who discovers a great treasure. I hate and abhor all falsehood, but I love your instructions. I will praise you seven times a day because all your regulations are just. Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble. I long for your rescue, Lord, so I have obeyed your commands. I have obeyed your laws, for I love them very much. Yes, I obey your commandments and laws because you know everything I do.

Prayer: Thank you for giving me your amazing Scriptures. They are light and life to me. On stormy days, Your Word comforts and soothes my troubled spirit. No matter what I face, your Word has already spoken to it. Help me to trust and follow your commands. In the name of Jesus I pray. 

BIBLE  PROPHECY

TESTIMONY

by David G. Rose

The Apostle Paul often interlaced teachings on Bible prophecy into his letters. In this way, Paul kept alive the hope of life eternal.

Paul made another prophetical statement in 1 Timothy 2:6 KJV – “Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” The Apostle makes a powerful and true declaration that Christ desires that “all” people would be saved. Jesus did not select a few to be saved. He did not appoint some to destruction. The choice is ours. We decide to accept Christ as Savior or to turn our back on Him. 

Further, Paul states “To be testified in due time.” This phrase looks from the Incarnation, to the death, burial, and Resurrection of Christ, until time is no more. The “testimony” is the whole story of Christ and His marvelous and precious Plan of Salvation for lost humanity. 

Today, this truth is known and understood by some. But a time is coming when all people of all ages will realize who Jesus is and “every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10-11 KJV)
 

Therefore, comfort each other and edify one another.

1 Thessalonians 5:11

 

Finally....

For stay at home Christians...

We started this ministry with you in mind. Recent reports state that many Christians no longer attend a church. They have been offended, or have to work, or they cannot physically leave their home, and so they stay at home. The coronavirus has closed many churches. 

 

Our heart is to reach out to you with Bible studies, hospital visitation, prayer for the sick, serving the Lord's Supper, counsel, etc. Just call on us and we will be your personal pastor.

 

There is no obligation or membership. When you need personal ministry, click here for more information >>>>

AN AUTUMN WALK

I love to take an Autumn walk
-----It clears my muddled mind;
Shuffling through countless crimson leaves
--New peace of mind I find.

I recall our great Creator
Who schedules each season well;
In Spring his leaves start greening
-- In Autumn they fall—pell-mell.

My life He too plans carefully
Every season of the year---
Some months are for growing
--Others, for reaping a harvest dear.

So as I make my Autumn walk
Shoes shuffling through lay-about leaves
I shuffle away my troubles too
-- No more to give me grief.

For Creator God who plans each year
Of this whole wide world you see---
Is also monitoring my whole life
--And that’s the way it should be.

7X Praise Challenge TM BEST A.png

All-day Praise!

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
