THE VICTORY MENTALITY
BASIC SCRIPTURE: 1 SAMUEL 17: 40-49
There are two groups of people living in the world today: People with a VICTORY MENTALITY and people with a VICTIM MENTALITY. People with a victory mentality carry themselves with a breath of victory everywhere they go. They expect the best, prepare for the best and demand for the best. They never settle for less. They always look at the positive side of circumstances.
They can never be weighed down by the circumstances surrounding them. They always find a way around every challenge. They never give up when things go tough. They are winners at heart and as such, they expect to win always. One man in the Bible that demonstrated this mentality is David. He developed it right from childhood. His heart was so strong and established in victory that even the loud scary threat of a giant named Goliath could not move him.
He told Goliath confidently, “You come against me with a sword and a spear and Javelin. But I come against you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” He was Confident in the God that he had on his side. He understood the dynamics of battle. Winning a battle is not a function of what you arm yourself with on the outside, but what you arm yourself with on the inside!
David armed himself with confidence in the Lord God Almighty. He faced Goliath with the assurance that God was going to grant him victory over Goliath. He told him fearlessly, “The Lord will deliver you into my hands and I will strike you and take your head from you.” Arm yourself with a victory mentality today, as 2021 ends and 2022 begins! You will NEVER end as a VICTIM in life!
