“A victim’s mentality says, the reason why we are where we are is because of someone else” –Pastor Tony Evans

The reason why I have relationship issues is because my father wasn’t there.
The reason why I don’t have more in life is because no one supported me.
The reason why I’m in debt is because my husband left me.
The reason why I don’t trust is because my ex-wife hurt me.

There’s no denying that these situations are real and they can impact us emotionally. However, if we keep this victim’s mentality of blaming someone else for where we are, there will never be motivation for us to change our view and our situation.

We need to move past a victim’s mentality to a victor’s mentality. We move to a victor’s mentality by acknowledging God in the areas where we’re in need. No father? That’s fine. God said He’ll be a Father to the fatherless (Psalm 68:5). You need support? God will help and sustain us (Psalm 54:4). You’ve been hurt? God will heal the brokenhearted (Psalm 147:3).

Whatever we need God for, God will be and if we trust Him, He guarantees victory in every area of our lives.

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, who always causes us to triumph in the Christ and makes manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

Be victorious!
