Text for Today: Luke 18:1-8 “Yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she will weary me.” (vs. 5).
Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting. Never consider the possibility of failure; as long as you are determined and persistent, you will be successful.
I believe success is achieved by ordinary people with extraordinary determination. Until you become determined and resolute over whatever you want to get done in life, some forces and powers will never bow to you.
This is because, if you are truly determined, every obstacle becomes a stepping stone. The difference between the impossible and the possible is in a person’s determination.
One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat. Whatever you condone in your life will become bigger and stronger in a matter of time.
Issues of life should not be allowed to settle down not to talk of permitting it to find enough space to operate. The only way not to allow your trouble to wear you out is to suppress it totally.
It is very possible for you to prove difficult for your troubles. When you prove stubborn and ruthless and you cultivate a determined spirit, you can wear out your problems.
The scripture clearly state it that you will pass through fire, it will not burn you. You may not have influence over what happens around you but you can influence what happen within you.
What happens within you is more important than what happens around you. From our text for today, though the widow in question was helpless, but her determination made a way for her.
You are a Champion!
