Before you achieve victory you have to get into the war. The sweetest victory requires that you face the strongest Enemy. You will get wounded, bruised, broken, almost dying. But once the Enemy is overcome, you face the rest of your life with dignity. And you enjoy the victory given into your hands by the One Who placed you in the war. And though you thought it was you who fought till the end, it was Him Who was actually wounded, bruised, broken and killed in your behalf.
