“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”* God made you this promise, friend. He promised that in Him you will have the victory. Make this verse the verse of your day. Make this verse the verse of your month. Use it, meditate on it, study it and pray it into your life. Do it until you have faith in that promise. You are not going to fail. You are not going to miss it. God is with you and He is going to make you triumph. Yes, friend, triumph is on the way. There is something amazing coming your way and it is the victory that Jesus bought on the cross for you. The cross did it all. It did so much more for us than we could imagine. Jesus settled all your problems on the cross. He took your pain and He nailed it on that cross so that it would die with Him. All your fears, your doubts, your suffering, your losses have been taken care of. The resurrection is a new beginning and every time you stay in the Lord and you trust Him, you are guaranteed a new beginning. When all seems lost, it is not the end for the Lord. He knows how it all ends and it ends with His victory. His victory is yours. Enjoy it today while you are waiting. Enjoy the promise and don’t let it part from your eyes. You have the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t let life tell you otherwise. Hear it from the Lord. He is telling you the truth. He did it all!
Have you ever felt like you were losing all the time? Have you ever felt like the battles were too tough and you could never win? I have felt that way and I can say that it is a horrible feeling. I can also say that I never knew what victory was like until I knew Jesus. For some, victory is winning against others. We are not in a race against other people. That type of victory is not what Jesus took care of. We are in a few battles and most of them are spiritual and mental. There is a battle of the mind and spiritual battles against dark principalities. There is the battle of faith and the battle of hope. God has won all those battles. Jesus owns the victory in every battle and He makes it available to us when we believe. He helps us get through the worst times and He gives us reasons to keep going and to keep trusting. Jesus has done it before and He will do it again. The truth is that He has done it all and it will always be the same result. The result for the believer is victory with no condition. This is why it is important for us to cultivate and nourish our faith so we can stay in the realm of hope and victory.
There is hope for you, friend. Don’t lose hope. Focus on the victory that is yours in Christ. Keep that in the middle of your heart. Jesus won. Jesus always wins. Say that to your mind. Say that to your heart. He is faithful and He took care of your entire life. Whatever obstacle or difficulty you will ever face has been dealt with. Now, hold on to faith and fix your eyes on Jesus, the author of your faith. Your difficulty is not too hard for the Lord. You are more than an overcomer through Christ. The victory belongs to you because you have Jesus in you. Greater is Jesus in you than the problem that is staring at you. Stare back with confidence and tell your problem that it won’t get the best of you because Jesus is the best in you and nothing can defeat Him. Reverence the Lord. Humble yourself in front of Him. Listen to Him. Follow his path. Thank Him for the cross. Thank Him for the victory. You are going to make it. You are going to win. Ask the Lord to direct you in the battle of the mind. Pray and rely on Him when it comes to spiritual battles. He has won them all. Stay strong. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
