Living a Victorious life looks different for everyone. Victory is a gift from God. We can have little victory apart from a life with God. This is evident in our society today. Depression, Despair, Striving, Hatred, Jealousy, Greed, Anxiety, Fear, Sickness and Sin, Grief, Broken relationships and disconnection from God. Some say it is because we live in a “fallen world”. If we believe that, we live that. We were created to live an abundant life, not something we attain fully, but rather a journey, a pilgrimage, a discovery of ourselves in connection with ourselves, others and God. We were created to live a full life. God the master craftsman gives us tools, wisdom and power to learn, grow and walk these out.
