You can become a winner by depending on God all the time. Say short prayers all the time. The more we depend on God, the more we show how much we trust Him. However, we ll have to remember that loving God and living according to His will all the days of all lives. Challenges can come in many different ways. They can come from work , from school or from home. Sometimes they can come swiftly and unexpectedly from the evil one.
It will be a big mistake for you to try to fight the devil alone. He has been around for a long, long time and he knows all the suggestions he can throw at you the he convinced Eve to eat the apple. Remember that the devil even tempted Jesus. Therefore, we should not be surprised if the devil tries to convince us to do the wrong thing.
If we depend on God all the time, we shall continue to overcome all the problems that will come our way. Whether these problems are financial or academic , spiritual or health -related issues . Through baptism , we all have the grace to live as children of God. To get the most out of our new life in Christ, we have acknowledge our weaknesses and total dependency on God. After all, Christ said that without Him. we can do nothing.
Unfortunately, sometimes we get carried away by our desires and tendency to seek pleasure at any cost. We forget that we are all struggling with the sin in us, that makes us do what we do want to do and fail to do what we want to do.This is because the body has desires against the spirit . According to St. Paul in Galatians, 16,” live by the Spirit and you will certainly not gratify the desire of the flesh”. In order to do this, we need to gain a better understanding of ourselves, our inner compass and the patterns that dominate our lives.
If you really want to become a winner and consistently overcome your daily temptations, you have to start by admitting to God that you need His help all the time. God will will help us if we take the steps to help ourselves. First we have to help ourselves by thanking God everyday. Secondly we have to pray to win everyday. We can do this by praying for ourselves and by asking others to pray for us. The third step would be to try to help others . By helping others we feel better about ourselves and become reminded of how God has helped us become more successful and happy in our daily lives, despite our daily struggles against sin and man’s wickedness to man.
