    Victory Strategy: Be Ready – Part 1 

    By Margaret D. Mitchell
    Week of November 15, 2020

    The Lord showed me several Words of knowledge on October 26 and then added the revelation-understanding over the next four days. (In case you didn't know, every title He gives me for every devotion is a Word of knowledge or a Word of wisdom in itself. It's what He desires to highlight each week.)

    So, let's begin…

    1 John 5:4 NLT tells us, "For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith."

    We see here that victory comes by faith. And we know that faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Ro 10:17). 

    Therefore, we must be committed in our faith as Paul describes in Romans 16:19, which says: 

    "I'm so happy when I think of you, because everyone knows the testimony of your deep commitment of faith. So, I want you to become scholars of all that is good and beautiful and stay pure and innocent when it comes to evil" (Ro 16:19 TPT).

    In this scripture, "A deep commitment of faith" can be translated as "obedience of faith."

    "Obedience" here can be translated as "submission to what is heard" in "response to someone speaking" (Strong's #5218).

    "Commitment" can be defined as responsibility and loyalty in terms of "devotion or dedication, e.g., to a cause, person or relationship" (Encarta). Think Jesus. It can also mean a "previously planned engagement" or an "arrangement or activity that cannot be avoided" (Encarta). Or "an agreement or pledge to do something in the future" (Webster's). Think Ephesians 2:10 and obeying God's instructions, so that the good works He "prepared in advance for us to do" will come "full circle" (Strong's #4043). "Commitment" can also mean to be "emotionally impelled," which is to be driven or propelled (Webster's, Dictionary.com). Think driven by love for God and His people.

    So, in summary, in order to have a victorious faith walk, we must "hear" from The Lord and obey His instructions from a heart of love for Him and others.

    The next Word is "strategy," which is God's perfect counsel.

    Choose traditions that encourage the wonder, that fill you and your loved ones with the hope we have as believers. When I think of old-fashioned, I think of a simpler time, a slower-pace. Create a space within the Christmas Season to breathe, slow down, and be intentional with the ones you love.
