The scripture for today, February 7 (2/7), is Proverbs 2:7 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.”
Do you feel like a loser sometimes? Once someone gets into that mindset, it is hard to break out. One dream after another has been shattered. One goal after another has been blockaded. One effort after another has been a failure.
The world can be a cruel place in which to live. It is ruled by Satan.
But look up! Victory is still possible! There is an old song called “Victory in Jesus.” We may be losers to our friends, but victors to God. Just remember, we cannot have victory in Jesus unless we have something to be victorious over.
Life is hard. But each day problems face us and we refuse to give in, that’s victory. Each day we search God’s Word for answers in the right places, that’s victory. Each day we refuse to give up on Jesus despite opposition to him by those around us, that’s victory.
Satan hates it when you don’t give up. Satan wants you to, not only give up on yourself, but also give up on God.
Do not give up. Never give up. Turn to God who can help you — with all your sins — be blameless and victorious. Keep on fighting and walking, fighting and walking until at last you walk right through the gates into heaven and are given the crown of a victor.

One thought on “The crown of a victor”
