“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
In the world, winning is everything.
It is clearly defined as medals, awards, and first place. God’s ways are different to ours and His thoughts are much higher. You can see why Jesus hanging on the cross LOOKED like He was losing. According to worldly wisdom, there cannot be a more “loser position” than hanging naked, pierced repeatedly, and bleeding on a cross while crowds jeered and spat on you. But God…What we would call losing, Jesus used to secure complete and utter victory for all who believe. Victory over sin, sickness, disease and all manner of curses! I AM victorious, in fact, more than a conqueror — courtesy of Jesus.
Now I’ll have to rethink any situation where it “seems” like I’m losing!
1 Corinthians 15:57
