Jordan For Jesus #003 "God Wins" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-03-06 07:07:50
No matter what you may be facing in life.. God always wins. He alone is the eternal God. Every situation that we face in this life is temporary, and God has overcome it all. The war against sin was won on the cross. The spiritual war is won on our knees, and in the end Jesus will return to this earth to win the war against satan.
Anytime you think that no one can possibly understand your situation just remember all of Jesus' suffering on the cross. Know which battles to fight, which battles to let God fight, and which battles God has already won. Because we, as followers of Jesus Christ, are in Christ, and we are on the winning side.
Keep trusting God with an unshakable faith, because the outcome is God has already won. Guarding the words you speak is so important! Words have significance and are truly powerful. The power to speak life and death is in the tongue. Words kill or give life. Choose to speak life!
Be kind, honest and just. Speak God's truth in His love! Speak Jesus and let all of your words continuously point to Him in everything! Let Christ, who is life, be your voice!
