VICTORY

“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.  You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.”                                               Hebrews 10:35-36 NIV

The previous Soul H2O devotion; Obedient Faith…Brings Rest ended with today’s verse, some encouragement and a quote from Winston Churchill.

“To keep your promise, you need to live out the words of Winston Churchill and
“Never, never, never give up!”

Reading the quote by Churchill led me to research his life. He was such an inspiring man in a potentially depressing time.

In 1941, while World War II was raging and Europe was being held captive by a murderous madman, “Victor de Laveleye, former Belgian Minister of Justice and director of the Belgian French-speaking broadcasts on the BBC”7 encouraged Belgians to form their hands into the V shape to represent victory. Months later, Winston Churchill began using the V sign in a speech.

For four more years, through great tribulation and much defeat, Churchill continued to use this hand sign to address the people of England.1 This was a visual sign of his confidence in their victory. To their enemy, it was also a visual defiance and a clear message of their perseverance as a nation.  The character trait that most impressed me about Churchill was his optimism.

Let this same mindset be yours. Signal to your enemy that you will endure until victory is achieved and you receive all that God has promised!

PRAYER:

Father,  May a spirit of confidence in Your promises sweep over my spirit so I can persevere through anything the enemy throws my way. Help me to signal confidence and victory that will inspire others around me to great faith! In Jesus’ name, amen.

    It’s nearly impossible to find well-informed people about this subject, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks

      You can only talk about Victory if you’ve been through a war 🙂
