Find a way to win! Do not allow circumstances, emotions or the opinion of others to cause you to accept defeat. Figure out what you must do to win in your situation. The spirit of victory is inside you. Stay alert to the Holy Spirit who will lead you to your triumph. Great military figures always remain determined to win the war they are involved in.
One of the most controversial and yet colorful figures in military history was George Patton. His ruthless sweep across France during the summer of 1944 was contrary to military wisdom. Yet, his strategy culminated in spectacular success! One of Patton’s main keys to victory was the undeniable spirit of victory that he instilled in his soldiers.
He is noted for saying the following: “Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of the men who follow, and of the man who leads that gains the victory.”
You were not created to lose or to be defeated. You were created to win the victory! Refuse the spirit of compromise. Embrace the spirit of victory and win the war you are in!
