“Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, ‘Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.’So he went out and wept bitterly.”
MATTHEW 26:75

Jesus was not surprised or disappointed when Peter failed. In like manner, He is not surprised or disappointed when you fail. Rather, He is waiting for you to fail so you will be reduced to Him. He has no illusions about you and He knows you through and through. He knows however much your spirit may be willing, your flesh is weak. Our weakness is not the trouble – the trouble is our unwillingness to acknowledge the weakness.

But I bring you good tidings of great joy, dear Christian friend! This failure of Self is the very key to living the Christian life. As painful as it is, the bitter tears of failure provide the water for nurturing the Precious Seed that is planted in your heart of hearts and making it grow. To despair of ourselves is the very key that opens the door to all the power, the victory, and fruitfulness in Christ that we seek.

I can't leave a post like the Ultimate Victory without glorifying God. God has said to seek him in all that we do. To seek Him as a precious jewel, seek him with all your heart mind and strength and you shall find Him, seek first the kingdom of God and all things will be added,and follow me and I will make you fishers of men.
The Ultimate Victory is no longer worrying about yourself, but glorifying God. Glorifying God is seeking the welfare of others not yourself. Living the two greatest commands this is the greatest victory. Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, mind, and soul, and love thy neighbor as thyself. There is no way for man to do this apart from God. For in our flesh is no good thing. Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of your flesh
