No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
As a Christian, is it wrong to want to succeed? Is it wrong to be competitive?
Not at all! As a believer, God can take your drive to succeed, your passion for success, and your competitive edge and refocus it for His glory.
Our Scripture verse says “We are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” God wants us to live in super, abundant victory.
We are in this race of life to win. Paul puts it this way in Corinthians, “Therefore, run to win.” Don’t just finish, win!
Now there are accusers and opponents that try to keep Christians from winning. The devil is our adversary. He is called the accuser of the brother in the Bible. The devil is constantly trying to discourage us, defeat us, and defame our testimony.
But I want to warn you against focusing on the devil today. Don’t let the devil distract you from the victory you have in Jesus Christ. Don’t be on the defense in life. Play offense. And run to win!
WHEN YOU KNOW JESUS, HE WILL TAKE YOUR DRIVE TO SUCCEED, YOUR PASSION FOR SUCCESS, AND YOUR COMPETITIVE EDGE AND REFOCUS IT FOR HIS GLORY.
