Perhaps millions of people lay in bed each day and think, I don’t want to get up.  My life is miserable.  Nothing good ever happens to me.  All my life people have taken advantage of me.  I hate my life and I dread facing another day.

Some people wake up daily with some version of this type of thinking.  Some are miserable, and guess what?  You can make yourself more miserable with your own thoughts and attitude.  In this state you are unaware that you can do anything about your life, so you remained a victim.  But thank God, He has given us victory through Christ!  He wants to give that same victory to anyone who has been a victim and need redemption.

Tip:  Spend 5 minutes each day being thankful for the victories that God has given you.

I Corinthians 15:67 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
