the losers win again

The Christian must lose everything that hinders him from looking like Christ.

This very moment He has His fingers gripped on your chin, saying, “Right here, Child. Look right here. Don’t look right or left. Stare straight into My face. I am your deliverer. There is none like Me.

The Christian life is all about losing. It’s about losing our self-will. It’s about losing our pride. It’s about losing our plans and finding God’s plan.

I am finding that the Lord knows what He is doing, even when we are frustrated and confused, with no idea where this is all leading.

To be in God’s will and pleasure is a blessing and should always be the goal of the honest Christian.

Keep the Lord first in your life by keeping Him first in your day. Start the day off in the Bible and prayer and you will handle the accounts of the day much better.

Instead of wallowing in pain, find an outlet to ease other’s pain and make yourself a blessing.

What we find is that there is purpose in pain. There is a reason that we’re ‘waiting’. You see, when God shows up in our lives, it seems as though He ‘suddenly’ arrived… but it’s really no surprise… it has happened just as God planned all along.

It is so important to be constantly in the Word of God reading and studying. The wise follower of the Lord will not be so easily deceived as the careless and frivolous Christian who goes about living life to the full while neglecting God in the process.

God is doing us a favor by bringing us to a place of forfeiting all of our expectations in our lives, so that we will embrace His.

The church is the healing, visible arm of Jesus. We are the world’s ‘little Christ’s’. That’s what ‘Christian’ means. We are the light of a world plunging into darkness.
—  Rick Hoover “Born-Again Losers: How to win by losing!”
He will not parade His plans and purposes for our approval. We must never forget that He is God. As such He wants us to believe and trust in him despite the things we don’t understand. It’s that straightforward.
