September 30 – Destined to Win

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” I Peter 1:3-5

Jessy Dixon came to Christian Retreat every year on Palm Sunday to sing and share his testimony.  He’s a dear friend and well-known for his song, “Destined to Win.” Jessy knows his destiny and exhorts everyone to have a “spirit of expectancy” in God. His very demeanor exudes this winning attitude.

You too are “destined” to win if you have entered into that new life in Christ. You have an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. You cannot lose!

Jesus told his disciples to “rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:20b) God is FOR you. He is cheering for you. He sees you as a WINNER, because He sees you for what you are BECOMING and He has already written the final chapter.

You can be confident of this very thing: “…he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)

PRAY:  “Father of winners, You have my destiny in Your hands. Thank You for the eternal inheritance You have promised. I will be faithful to follow Your instructions. Amen.”
