Daily Devotion: The Victory

Bible Reading: I Corinthians 15:50-58 

Key Verse: Verse 57 - But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Key Words: But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory

When the Japanese launched their attack against the Philippines, several thousand United States troops were on those islands, totally unprepared. How bravely they fought on Bataan, slowing the enemy and making him pay heavy losses for each foot of gain! The men fought on, hoping against hope that reinforcements would soon be available. But our fleet had been severely wounded, and there were no reinforcements available.

A year later, however, we were ready to launch the great offensive in the Solomon Islands. The papers that told the news of the great battle raging on Guadalcanal also published an assurance from our Secretary of War. He said, “There is twice as much food as the soldiers can eat; there is twice as much ammunition as the soldiers can fire; there is twice as many nurses and doctors as would ordinarily be needed in any military engagement; there are twice as many medical supplies as could be needed; there are twice as many airplanes as are possessed by the enemy. We are prepared for victory.”

The Secretary of War spoke of a military victory. In our text, the victory given by God is a spiritual victory that does not come through man’s effort, but through accepting Jesus as our Savior. It is the greatest of all victories!! Are you a part of the winning team? Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior? If not, why not bow your knee and your heart to Jesus right now, and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins, and accept Him as your Lord and Savior?

What to do:

✞ Join the winning side – accept Jesus as your Savior.
✞ If you are saved, live victoriously because you are on the winning side.
