I want to share this song with you that I discovered from the movie “The Gospel.” Great movie, great soundtrack! Yolanda Adams sings “Victory,” a song that is about how you can get through the pain and trouble in life. And joy is thrown in for good measure, because knowing Jesus is your Savior gives you hope.
The ultimate victory that God gives us is the victory over death. All we have isn’t just what this life gives us. Jesus is our Savior when we believe He is the Son of God, and that He has the power to forgive our sins, connect us to God the Father, and provide us with eternal life.
What does forever with God look like? It’s a life very different from this one. There is no uncertainty and no fear. There is complete security and endless joy. There is no physical pain or illness. There is no loss of those you love and no mourning or grief.
God promises us that, and He doesn’t go back on His promises. You can count on Him. You know how people will say, “Don’t count on it!” What they mean is, “You might be disappointed, so don’t get your hopes up!”
But God can be trusted with your biggest insecurities and your most important hopes. He won’t fail you! Eternity–forever–with God is assured when you believe in Him. He alone has the power to give you an eternity of love and unending joy! He sees you, He knows you, and He loves you. Let Him give you the victory!!
