Five minute victories. We live in an age of defeat. We are over-taxed, over-burdened, over-controlled, over-governed, over-regulated, over-this, over-that. In response to these "overs" we either live with the heavy hand of pain-filled darkness upon us, or we live in victory. When we live in pain, we live in defeat if we cannot make the pain go away. Pain is defeating. Emotional hurt is defeating. Physical pain is defeating. More often than not, we respond by not responding. We respond to powers greater than us by being passive. Perhaps we should rebel. Perhaps we should come against those powers attacking us or suffocating us by rebellion in some form. However, in the United States and in other parts of the world, we are more or less a passive people. We do not riot. We do not respond with violence. We respond with peace and acquiescence. By not trying to score victories against the powers holding us down, we live in defeat. We must stop living in defeat. We must start living in victory. We must live in victory for Christ and for His call upon us to love others. We must start living in victory by building His kingdom on earth. We must start living in victory by scoring five minute victories. If we start scoring five minute victories every day, even if just one victory a day, we have started a victorious campaign against the power of darkness so wanting us to be defeated.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord place His healing hands upon you to give you comfort and peace.
