A Victor’s Mentality
In the Old Testament, when the people were going through mourning or some kind of loss, they marked their foreheads with ashes to signify their sorrow. This type of mourning was permissible and expected. Interestingly, God’s people were allowed to grieve for a certain period of time, and then God told them to move on with their lives.
It’s the same way with us. When we go through some sort of loss or disappointment, God doesn’t expect us to be emotionless. Its okay to go through a time of grieving. But don’t allow yourself to live there. Don’t let that season of mourning turn into a lifestyle of mourning, living a sour and negative life, going around with a chip on your shoulder. God wants to turn all that around. Start having a victor mentality this morning.
