Thankfulness: From Hand to Heart Day 25

"But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57

    Thanksgiving is over, but don't give up yet! A habit of thankfulness is one of the most you can develop. They say if you spend 30 days doing something, it becomes a habit, so you only have a few more days!

   This verse is so short but so perfect. Thanks to God for giving us victory through Christ! I truly can't think of anything that I am more thankful for. Life seems set up to defeat, it is full of things we can't control: other people's attitudes, our health, the weather. It is hard to remember that we don't just have victories: we have *the* victory. All of it. There is nothing that can defeat us.

"31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us?... 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:31,37-39

   We win! Nothing can come between us, nothing can rule over us, nothing can take us away. We have total, ultimate victory. I can't think of anything to be more thankful for.

Today's Reflection:
   The verse and devotional are so short today. Can you take that extra time to list all the ways you have been given victory in Christ? Make the list as long as you can, and thank God for each.
