Feel like a winner every day

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.” Ephesians 6:10 It’s easy to love life when you are winning and being recognised, when the company is setting sales records, when the church is packed, when others are recognising your achievements.

It’s easy to strive for excellence and have passion in such times. Yet in the years or the seasons of life when there are no awards, no bonuses, and little tangible success, it is tempting to allow the warmth of your spiritual passion to drop below body temperature.

But God calls us to be steadfast in our spiritual passion every day, even when we feel like losers. The apostle Paul’s admonition to be strong is followed by his instruction to put on the whole armour of God.

Changing Paul’s metaphor from a battlefield setting to something closer to our 21st century living, a loose paraphrase of this would be: be strong, and put on the uniform of a champion every day!

May you have passion for God’s Kingdom even in days when you don’t feel like a winner.
