Even when you LOSE you WIN!
“Even when you LOSE you WIN”
Imagine winning every time that you lose, no seriously think about that…… You’re probably thinking is that even possible? Yes, it is very possible because as Jesus said “What is impossible with men is possible with God.”(Luke 18:27) That means He can turn losses into wins, failures into successes, difficulties into ease and so on. I’ve had a lot of “losses” in my life from finances to relationships to careers, education and so on but I truly didn’t lose because there is a lesson in every loss, which sets us up to win! So like Jay-Z said “ I will not lose” and neither will you if you just believe this to be true. How can you lose if you gain wisdom from something?
I remember in my second year of college when I worked in the Library they said they were “letting me go” for unknown reasons. I considered this a loss for a little while until a few days later I saw a job posting for a studio operator controlling live TV courses. (Keep in mind media is what I am passionate about) I applied for the job and got it! I was thrilled! So when they “let me go” it really was more of win then a loss. However, I did have a choice to perceive it as a loss but I didn’t allow my mind to take me there because in every obstacle there is an opportunity.
A lot of us seem to think that there is no blessing in a loss but this is quite contrary to the way God moves. It was after Joseph went to jail that he had the opportunity to become the second in command to Pharoh. It was after Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego went through the fire that the King Nebuchadnezzar promoted them in the province of Babylon. It was after Job lost everything that he had before he got double for what he lost. It was after Jesus was beaten, bruised and killed that He sat on the throne of victory. “Even when you LOSE you WIN as long as you’re in Christ. There is no failure, loss, mistake, or disaster God cannot turn around for your greater good. He will make a way, trust him to do it.
And we know that in all things that God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28”.
