Michael Pickford

Just ask any baseball team who’s ever won the World Series. Ask any football team who’s ever won the Super Bowl. Ask any group of soldiers who’s ever won a battle. Ask any politician who’s ever won the race for office. Ask any runner who’s ever won a Marathon. They will all tell you there’s nothing like victory - Sweet Victory!

However, there has been no battle more fierce than a battle with Satan. There have been no games more deadly than the games the devil tries to play with us to get us to veer off course. There has been no race which requires more discipline and stamina than the one the Christian is in for his soul. And, There will never be any victory so sweet as the one the faithful child of God will proclaim on the last day!

Yes, temptations of Satan can be strong. Yes, the glamour and glitter of the world can be tempting. Yes, the sacrifices we must make can be daunting. But, we are Christians. We are born of God! And “whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has over come the world - our faith” (1 John 5:4). If you’ll study the Bible often; if you’ll pray without ceasing; if you’ll diligently do good works; if you’ll discipline your mind to meditate on pure things, then through faith in Christ, you can have victory. Paul proclaimed victory as he was nearing death (2 Timothy 4:6-8). You can too! Just “keep on keepin on.” “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
