Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”

James 1:2-3

There are always going to be people who are against you; people are always going to tell you that you are too young, too short, too skinny, too fat, not educated enough, or not the right race. And guess what, those people are never going to go away. But it doesn’t matter because you can do anything you set your mind to. You can do and achieve anything as long as you foster the kind of mind and thinking that results in achievement. Nothing is ever going to be fair, and that stinks, doesn’t it? There are always going to be bullies, there are always going to be bigots, and there are always going to be people that put others down. But there will always be victors who overcome them because instead of blame, they foster thoughts of victory, of life, and of hope. That’s who you are. Don’t let bitterness come in your heart; don’t let blame come in your heart. A successful life is the result of successful thinking.


Give me victory, God. Help me push past the people who are telling me otherwise.


How can you foster thoughts of victory?

  1. Thank you for the inspiring devotional! Definitely need to be reminded of who we are in Christ and not let the world define who you are.

  2. I thank you for this thought today, I am forwarding the thought to our team, we are working on our dream of new AMAZING and wonderful treatment centers, and three tiered housing units for veterans, single Mother, disabled persons…….that are using the VEA veteran program career and therapy project that in ten weeks helps to create new lives and hope in our clients……….we are ALL volunteers, and need pray and than YOU for often the words of hope and keep going kick that we needed at that point ………going through what we have (cancer for two members, death of three of our board members, and of course the continued suffering of our clients and their families) In Jesus Name we ask for prayer and support for these programs to get more support and be able to help more persons. Amen

  3. Please Pray for me. I am in a deep financial mess. I am trying to get out with help from a credit assoc. to make my payments less, but I still have a lot of anxiety over it. My depression and anxiety are off the wall, taking medications and sleeping a lot and crying. I am Praying GOD will somehow find a miracle in my life to end this. GOD BLESS YOU
