FINDING NEW WAYS TO WIN
The gun goes off, the horses are launched out of their gates, and all that can be heard is the thunder of hoofs. As the steeds round the first corner, the crowded grandstand is on their feet, cheering their favorite horse and rider to the finish line. Then the celebration begins with ribbons and pictures and congratulations all around.
It seems that every contest in life has a winner and a lot of losers, or at least people who didn't win. Well, you say, not everybody can win. Yes, I understand that, but the loser can someday be a winner if they adjust themselves toward that mark.
I'm convinced the most important thing to do in life to be a winner is to understand that God made us to succeed in so many different ways.
Romans the eighth chapter and 37 verse tell us that we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ that loved us.
That tells me there are many ways to win if we allow the Holy Spirit to give us a mind that is not cluttered with doubt, fear, and losing that we might have the mind of Christ, which is full of so many possibilities to win.
The scriptures tell us that Jesus came so that we might have life and that more abundantly. To me, abundant life means that if it doesn't work one way, God will give us the wisdom to make it work another way, but in the end, we will hit the target.
The great American inventor Thomas Edison tried 1000 times to make the lightbulb work. One thousand failures before he struck gold. You and I have spent many hours late into the night reading our favorite books because Thomas Edison didn't give up.
Don't give up, my friends; your miracle is just around the corner.
