You have been born again to win. You are destined to win. In order to win, you must feed your faith. Amen. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God,” and you, the believer, live by faith. “The just shall live by faith.” And so, in order to win, you’ve got to feed your faith.
Winning is a victory, and it is a victory that has been handed over to us by someone who finished the course for us. The Word of God says, “This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.” When you feed your faith, you have more in common with your victory. You get in agreement with your victory. You start enjoying your victory. You’re not looking for the victory. You’re not trying to get the victory, because you’ve been born again to win.
You have the victory, whether or not you ever get it.
Let me say that again: You have the victory, whether or not you ever get it. So it’s not right for anybody with sense to live and die just to find out that they had a victory they didn’t enjoy, that they had a victory they never came in agreement with because their attitude and their thoughts robbed them of agreement with the victory they had, and kept them trying to get a victory that was already theirs.
You’re born again to win. You’re a winner by nature of your new nature. Amen! You’re not the same person you used to be. You have been changed. Glory be to God! And, you have been born into a winner species.
17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV
He is not the same old, defeated, confused, “sinner saved by grace.” What is he? A new creature! So if you are in Christ, you’re not who you used to be, because if you are a new creature, then you’re not the old creature. If any man, or human, be in Christ, or be in union, agreement, and faith in Christ—born again—he is a new creature! “Old things are passed away, and behold, all things are become new.” Amen!
You are a new creation!
It was not a man-made strategy that changed man, therefore it is not going to be a man-made strategy that will transform him. You were saved by God’s agency. You will be transformed by God’s Word. So when it says that you’re a “new creation,” you’ve got to first of all settle it: you were born again to win!
Let me say that again: you are a winner. Do you know what a winner does? They just win! You say, “What are you talking about?” I’m talking about anything. You win against anything. Glory to God! You don’t fail. You don’t bow the knee to depression. You don’t get confused. You don’t get suicidal. You don’t get afflicted. You can’t get tormented. You can’t get defeated, not when you’re tuned into agreement with your new nature. You’re born again to win!
The things that defeat humans, you defeat, when you know you’ve been born again to win Glory to God! Hallelujah! The stuff that escapes other people, runs into your home. What they’re living their life to try to gain, is added to you. Hallelujah! What they can’t figure out, God tells you. You’re born again to win! You’re a new creation. You’re a new species. You are not the same old person you used to be! Amen.
