Win the Day
…by Shane Hale
How do your days start? With an unenthusiastic, defeated mindset? Would you rather it be enthusiastically, with a bold expectation of winning life’s daily battles? Then start your day with a bang! Rally your troops! Do your part.
Don’t just read a devotional in the morning or say a prayer so you can check that box and get a star for the day. No sir! Study your devotional, talk to God, and listen for His instructions. Stand tall and boldly tell satan and his minions out loud that they have no charge over you! Do your part.
Tell them that anything they bring against you this day and every day will fail…because your victory is guaranteed! Say it out loud and with the authority of one who is the outright child of a King. Then go BOLDLY into your day. Do your part.
Sound the trumpet and lead the charge.
As believers in Christ, few ever see the army of angels put in charge to watch over us. But satan and his army can see them. Both teams show up for battle every…single…day, and the main battleground is in your mind. Lead that charge. DO your part.
If you take charge of your day…like the guy taking the field with a sledge hammer…your army of angels will respond in the same way as they follow you out the door. I mean seriously, who doesn’t want to follow that guy into battle?! Do YOUR part.
God didn’t create us to be miserable failures. He didn’t create us to go through life depressed, scared, anxious, or timid. That is not why He created us. And it is not why Christ came to earth and died for us. He came to give us life and to give it to us abundantly. Do your PART.
With God at your side, fight the battle.
Seek God early each day and take Him with you throughout that day. Give your personal protection detail, your army of angels, something to work with! DO YOUR PART.
Seriously, God is for you. Who or what can possibly rise against you?!1
Get in the boat. Do your part.
