Yesterday, I went to Subway for lunch with my mentor. We were enjoying a nice time together until I decided to look at the game piece on the side of my Subway cup. Now, I do not usually suffer from an inferiority complex but a guy can only take so many hints. When I pulled the game piece off, it said in bold letters “NOT AN INSTANT WINNER”. Subway was telling me I wasn’t a winner. I have encouraged myself in the Lord many times. I have relied on my position in Christ and now Subway tells me I am not a winner:(
Now, I say these things jokingly but there happens to be someone who likes to tell us we are not winners. Satan, our enemy. He whispers in our ear, “You are not a winner.” Sometimes he even uses the words, “You are a loser.” He doesn’t always tell you personally but uses others to drag you down. They may speak ill words of you that make you feel small and like you are not worth much. The enemy seeks to bring down every believer and he often uses this very tactic. It leaves us wondering who we are in Christ and feeling as if we have nothing to offer to God.
The Bible emphatically states that we are winners. We are more than conquerors through Christ. We are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, blessed and not cursed. We are to see ourselves giants and not grasshoppers (Numbers 13:33). No weapon formed against us shall prosper. We are victorious through the blood of Jesus. Satan is the accuser of the brethren but Jesus has won the victory over the enemy.
Do not listen to anyone who says you aren’t worth anything. You are worth everything. God says so!
