Most times we want to have a victory without going through a battle but it doesn’t work that way. If you want a great victory, you need a great battle. 1 Corinthians 10:13 tells us that whatever we go through is common to man. We do not have a special trial that no one else has ever gone through. That is the devil’s strategy to get us to think that we are the only one going through this trial, and that is a lie. There is always a way of escape for whatever we are going through. Every time we go through a trial we have the opportunity for victory, to glorify God, to develop patience, for blessing and for joy. Nehemiah 8:10 says that the joy of the Lord is our strength. Joy is a choice.
