Set Up To Win

may 5The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

When teaching a child how to play a game, you make it age appropriate so they have a chance to win. Likewise, God will never put us in a situation that He hasn’t already set up for us to be victorious over. As our Creator, God knows our strengths, weaknesses and exactly what situations we will encounter. Therefore, He knows how to set up our challenges in a way that we can overcome them.

Just as a parent celebrates when their child hits the ball for the first time, God celebrates each time we take a step towards victory. A parent also holds on to the bicycle until the child is steady enough to let go.  However, God holds on and never lets go as we are empowered in His strength and courage. As our Heavenly Father, God loves us and positions us to be successful. We just have to be willing to take that first step towards reliance in Him, so we will be the winner He has set us up to be.

“Dear God, Thank you for wanting us to be successful and for giving us ways to do so. Help us as we take that first step towards victory.”

For His Glory
