It`s time to fight, hold on, victory is yours!
Life presents us with many, different seasons in our lives! Solomon the wise king who wrote Ecclesiastes teaches us that there is a time and season for everything that needs to be done (Ecclesiastes 3:1- 8)
What season are you going through?
Are you trying to achieve success? perhaps feeling discouraged? or you simply would like to see victory over a current situation? If any of these apply to you, I have carefully selected 25 scriptures that will get you to the victory line!
Topics include Courage, Determination, Diligence, Victory and Faith. I have used The Message Bible and the New International UK Bible translation as both versions are written in plain text, making it appealing for most people, and easy to understand. I personally thrive on positive words. I love a good morning dose of empowering scriptures, it sets my day-right & bright and it can do the same for you too! :)

For Better Results:
My recommendation would be, that you print a copy of these scriptures. Find a suitable quite time and apply daily. These popular scriptures may be common to the fellow christian believer, however when you speak out these words and meditate daily, there is unspeakable results...you will feel empowered! When we confess the word, success is assured (Joshua 1:8) Give it all you have, heart and soul. All the best!! Be Blessed
