12 Days of Jesus - Day 5: Victory

    12.16.18 | by Joe Dascenzo

    Warm Up:
    Pray: "Lord, thank you for the victory that you are bringing to my life. Help me to live an overcoming life, confident in what you have done for me."

    Round 1:
    Write out John 16:33 and read 1 Corinthians 15:57-58.

    Round 2:
    Set a timer for 5 minutes and start it. Spend this time thinking about your life—spiritually, relationally, emotionally and physically. How are you feeling in each of these areas? Do you fee like you are winning in each of them?

    Round 3:
    Write down the areas of your life where you feel like you are losing (they are not going well). Write down what you want to see change in these areas and ask God to help you gain victory in these areas.

    Round 4:
    Set a timer for every three hours today. Each time the timer goes off, stop and think about the victory that Jesus has provided for you. Say a quick prayer declaring that you are winning no matter what your circumstances look like. This isn't about positive thinking, it's about trusting God and the Holy Spirit's power in your life. Big difference.

    Burn Out:
    Schedule time with someone today. When you are with them, turn off your phone and just be with them. Listen. Share. Be present.
