Certainly you can have the feeling of pride — a sense of accomplishment, whatever the means. Even cheaters can feel pride. As a Christian one should not feel pride anyway, as it is not a virtue. Perhaps pride is not a good word. But certainly acknowledging oneself as a vessel of achievement under God is something that can happen, free-willed or not. If it was the will of God that you won, then so be it. Acknowledge it and bear your crucifix with a sense of achievement under God's will.
