Are you on the way to victory?


Followers of Jesus are filled with a great hope about the future: we may live in a vale of tears; however, there will be a day when all tears will be gone. The ancient prophet, Isaiah, reminded his people that their present captivity in a foreign land would not be the end of their story:

“He (God) will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces….” (Isaiah 25:8)

For those whose lives are filled with faith in the God of heaven and earth, there is a future hope that overrides all the trials and tribulations of this life. Whatever we are facing, we know that this current script is not the final edition. We know that the Author is writing an ending that will give us victory over death and sorrow. This hope has empowered billions of people over the years to endure much suffering. The old Negro Spiritual puts it this way:

“The Lord will see us through,
the Lord will see us through.
The lord will see us through some day 

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe


The Lord will see us some day
We’re on to victory; we’re on to victory

We’re on to victory some day

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe

We’re on to victory some day

Are you on the way to victory?
