Matthew 10:31 – Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”

Are you tired of defeat, despair, disappointment, and devastation? Are you ready to put your failures, frailties, and faults behind you and walk into your Victory? Here are 7 steps to get there!

The first step to your victory is to know that you have VALUE in God. If you are truly in Christ and Christ is truly in you, the good news is you have the victory over your adversary and victory over your opposition. The first thing to know is your value in God. Understand that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God, and He loves you and desires to see you prosper in Him!

When you know your value to the body of Christ, you can stand boldly before the enemy and assert that you are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.

The second step to your victory is to be INTIMATE with God. The only way that can happen is to draw closer to Him, to talk with Him, to get to know His likes and dislikes. He created you for His glory and His pleasure. He wants you to love Him freely. I heard a saying that intimacy simply means “in-to-me-you-see.” God is standing at the door of your heart waiting for you to invite Him in so He can sup with you, and you sup with Him. You must read His pray, and worship Him to truly be in His presence.

The third step to your victory is COURAGE from God. Courage is defined as the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. Did you know that you’ve already lost the battle if you approach it with fear and trepidation? When you have courage from God, you are merely operating in faith mode. When you have courage from God you, not of your own, will be able to come against all the Goliaths in your life. You may have darts thrown your way but know that no weapon formed against you will prosper!

The fourth step to your victory is to TRUST in God. Trust means: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something. How many times have you been in a situation and ended up worse than you started off? You trusted the wrong person or maybe your own judgment? You have the assurance if you stand on the word of God, the promises of God, and the truth of God. Victory is yours.

The fifth step to your victory is OBEDIENCE to God. Obedience means an act or instance of obeying. If you obey His command, there is nothing that you could not ask for that He would withhold from you. If you are a parent, you feel proud and overjoyed when your children know what is expected of them and they do it willingly. Life can be so much better for you if you are obedient to God.

The sixth step to your victory is to RECOGNIZE God in your situation. To recognize means to perceive clearly; realize. I don’t know what you’re wrestling with. But be encouraged. Stand still. Quiet your spirit. See the positive, not the negative, the good not the bad, and your future, not your present. It’s all in how you perceive it. You can bemoan about how big your problem is or boast about how big your God is!

And the final step to your victory is to YIELD to God. Yield means to surrender or submit (oneself) to another. Yielding is a struggle that many of us are dealing with when it comes to our relationship with God and others. If you want victory in your life and your destiny, you must yield everything to Him. No matter how small and insignificant you may think it is, turn it over to God and allow Him to orchestrate the roadmap to your victory.
