“…therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand the evil day, and having done all to stand…”—Ephesians 6:13 (NKJV)

In the Olympics, we see a lot of people coming from different parts of the world to participate in the sports they feel they are very good at. Men and women who are physically strong represent their countries in games like football, basketball, javelin, high jump, swimming, marathon, cycling, etc. Of course, every one of these games has its own various trophies, so everyone is fighting to get the trophy from one of these many games. But the one who is going to go home with the trophy can only be decided at the end of the game. Many will start, but not many will move on to the next round because some will be cut off at the pass. Why? Maybe they were not skilled enough, disciplined enough, fast enough, or may not just be good enough. But in the end, only the skilled, disciplined, and well-trained man will stand, and he will be the one to get the trophy because the trophy was the aim of the game. 

Now, if we are to relate all that to our present lives, the question you must ask yourself is, in this race of life, am I really running to win? What am I fighting for? The answers to these questions will determine what happens at the end. So, I ask you, the things you are fighting for right now, are they really worth fighting for, or is quitting a better option? Some people are currently fighting a deadly disease that has afflicted their lives, some are fighting for their liberty, and some are Christians who have not separated themselves from the bounds of the devil. But in all beloved, whatever you are fighting, remember the aim is to win. And like every athlete will train continuously until he is skilled enough to compete for a trophy, I ask that you train yourself, by building yourself up on your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Ghost (Jude 1:20). Invest time in studying the word of God and make sure you understand the message it communicates. Put to work all you have learned from God’s word. Exercise your faith again and again, commit yourself to prayer and fasting, and above all abandon yourself to God. Remember that your life is not a game, so don’t play with it and do not have the intention to quit, but do all you can to win in life, because winning is the only choice you have.


Life is not a game, so don’t play with your life and quit at the end!


I decree today that I have the winning nature of the Father within me, and I utilize this nature in everything that I do. I do not give up and neither do I give in, am in this world to win and to always win in life, therefore, by the power of the Holy Spirit, I decree that I am winning all the way in the name of Jesus. Amen!
