Go Ye Therefore

The Law of Victory: Part 16

 Won’t Succeed Without Fight-Revelation 12:7-12

In order for leaders to find a way for the team to win, there must be a contest. In Revelation 12, we read about the ultimate contest between the forces of good and the forces of evil. The hosts of heaven take on the dragon and his angels. Good eventually wins out through the blood of Christ and the testimony of the believers (Rev. 12:11).

The truth for leaders? First, victory rarely comes without a fight. There is no success without sacrifice; there is a cost to every crown. The good news is anything worth achieving is worth the battle. Second, victory rarely comes without a team effort. Michael didn’t fight alone (12:7). The saints didn’t overcome the enemy alone (12:11). God designed us to win in community. Third, victory should never come without a celebration. The heavens rejoice at the victory of the Lamb (12:12). The greater the victory, the bigger the celebration!
