Now let’s learn more about this new devotional, shall we?
This is not meant to be a book. It is meant to be an experience. An experience of victory in God.
Over the past five years we have lived among Christians in three different states; Oklahoma, Connecticut and Texas. In each of these experiences, we came across many that struggled as we did with feeling defeated in Christianity.
When we say we felt defeated, we don’t mean that we lost hope in the truth of the Bible. Perhaps some have. But what we are referring to is more of a struggle with God’s truth penetrating the surface of our hearts. It is the separation between merely knowing the Word, and being empowered by God to be a living work of His grace. It is not only allowing conviction to move our hearts to repentance. But it is to progress past that to the place of victory, in which His gracious power abides within us, setting us free.
It’s kind of like, we’ve gotten really good at feeling convicted of our sins and realizing we need God. But when we have Him, we don’t know what to do next, so we just shrink back into feeling convicted again. We seem to struggle in identifying with the victorious God who makes us “more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37). Why?
Because we keep focusing on everything we do wrong. And who can experience God’s victory when all we can see is our failure.
But, if we identify with God’s victory, it becomes our victory as well. When we look to Him, and away from us, His love washes away all that hinders us from His peace that surpasses understanding (Philippians 4:7).
This 30 day devotional was written to help inspire believers to overcome all that hold them back because God is greater than our limits.
Each daily devotional contains scripture, application, and a challenge. Most devotionals begin with a story to help you identify with the struggle for victory in that specific area. The struggles we chose for this devotional are universal and most of us are battling them right now. Some of the trials addressed are: Destruction, Weakness, Sin, Idols, Judgement, Failure, Suffering, Fear, Grief, Injustice, The Past.
Each day contains a section called VICTORY IN ACTION. This is where you can reflect on your personal journey by journaling your thoughts and what God may be teaching you. But the real victory is when you put what you are learning into action. We give you challenges specific to the struggle you are overcoming that day. They stretch you, grow you and equip you for living out a life of victory.
After you’ve completed each day, we welcome you to join the Love Uncensored Movement by sharing the status update provided for that day on social media. Simply copy the status update provided for that day and feel free to tag @loveuncensored and hashtag #VictoryInChrist. This is a powerful way to share Christ’s transforming victory in your life and encourage others to embrace God’s victory in theirs.
You may want to invite a friend or Bible study group along with you on this journey. Because as we know, iron sharpens iron.
Remember that Jesus is for you. He loves you and wants you to experience the fullness of life that is only found in Him.
