Every problem in life is a wisdom problem! Or you could say that every problem in life is a painful difficulty that arises because of the improper application of the truth of Scripture. Along that same line of thought, every case of poverty can be traced back to a broken law of God. And so to go from the spiritual, emotional, and physical outhouse to the penthouse, you must know how to effectively execute God’s divine strategy for continuous—uninterrupted—victory. You must know how to effectively execute the divine strategy for kingdom living or victory every day in every way. That is to say, you must know how to escape from the outhouse and remain in the penthouse—spiritually, emotionally, and physically—day in and day out, week in and week out, month in and month out, year in and year out, regardless of the inevitable troublesome issues of life. This book will show you how to employ the change-producing, Holy Spirit empowered forces to execute the divine strategy for victory to do that. Take note that what I am talking about is not rocket science! Any believer can do it, once you know how. For this is what Jesus promised believers when He said the following two things:
If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:31–32)
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10, NKJV)
Therefore, in order to possess the abundant kingdom life, life to the fullest, or victory every day in every way—you must totally know, understand, and effectively execute the wisdom and divine strategy for victory that is recorded in Scripture. Victory every day in every way is not something that you can stumble into! It is rooted and grounded in a divine strategy that you must purposely execute like Phil Jackson’s Chicago Bulls basketball team executed the Triangle Offence and won six NBA Championships in seven years. You must execute the divine strategy with the kind of excellence with which Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packer football team executed blocking and tackling. Their excellent execution won them three straight and five total NFL Championships and two Super Bowls.
So what I am saying is that God has a strategy for victory that works every day in every way! It works and will provide you with victory over anything that you could possibly face in life. It works all the time—if you execute it properly! And through the power of the Holy Spirit, this it is not hard to do.
This book, Victory Every Day in Every Way, will take you from wherever you are in life spiritually, emotionally, physically, and economically to where God wants you to be. And where God wants you to be is living life abundantly. Where God wants you to be is living life to the fullest, day in and day out—without any interruptions whatsoever in your peace, joy, and contentment!
And so this book is for people who are experiencing some difficulty in making victory every day in every way a reality in their life. It is for anyone who is struggling or undergoing some difficulty in finding the pathway to a victorious lifestyle or for people who are struggling to continuously walk in victory after you have found the path.
But also, this book is for people who yearn to be effective in helping others to make the transition from where they are in life to where God wants them to be. It is for pastors, teachers, friends, and family members who have a heart for helping others to start the journey to victory. It is for people who want to help others successfully maintain victory in the issues of life—day in and day out—year after year! Or you could say that this book is for people who want their lives (or to help others) to transition from being a thermometer to a thermostat.
In other words, this book is for you whose success, prosperity, peace, and joy is determined by the environment or happenstances of your life. But, you want your success, prosperity, peace, and joy to be permanently set on full or abundance. Now, what book of the Bible is best qualified to instruct a believer on how to rise above whatever your status is in life and make victory every day in every way a reality for you?
And the answer is—Nehemiah! This book—Victory Every Day in Every Way—is based on the Old Testament book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah records three distinct phases of a tried-and-true process for installing God’s victorious, divine purpose and plan into a person’s life and making it a continuous reality. Those three phases of kingdom living according to Nehemiah the governor are the following: (1) Starting the Journey to Victory; (2) Preparing and Getting Ready for Victory; and (3) Executing the Divine Strategy for Maintaining Victory.
This is why James could say so convincingly, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds” (1:2). James could say this with so much confidence because he knew, without a doubt, that the divine strategy for victory always works when you execute it properly. James knew that the divine strategy for victory for maintaining the promise made by Jesus of abundant living or victory every day in every way for all believers always works—regardless of what you might encounter in life when it is executed according to the Word of God. And so uninterrupted victory or the conversion from being a thermometer to a thermostat is a done deal when a believer executes the three phases of kingdom living according to Nehemiah the governor.
How much of the awesomely abundant life that Christ died to provide for believers do you want—a little bit, a lot, or all of it? If your answer is "all of it," then Victory Every Day in Every Way was specifically written for you! This book will guide you on a journey from the outhouse to the penthouse or from wherever you are in life to where God wants you to be. God wants all believers to be victorious in everything we do, wherever we go, and for however long we stay.
This book explores the foolproof plan for kingdom living that God revealed to Nehemiah the governor. The plan is centered around the very difficult task of building a wall of protection around Jerusalem for the establishment of an uninterrupted victorious lifestyle for his people. This plan worked for Nehemiah and the Jews. It will therefore work for you! For God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow!
