True victory

True victory comes by the Hand of God and not by works of man.
Many things men consider as victories are in reality defeats.
Only by the wisdom imputed by the Spirit can a man know whether something is true victory or not.
Nearly all men will count an earthly gain as a spiritual victory, yet in reality they have yielded to the temptation of a snare set by the evil one.
Like a mouse attracted by the cheese in a trap so had the deceitfulness of riches lured many to their doom.
Never, never, never put money ahead of  God, my son.
In all things consider the Will of God first and desire of your flesh last.
There is no security in money, only in God is their true security.
