The Victory Is Yours!

1 Corinthians 15:57

…but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

It is God who has given us the victory through what Jesus has done for us. When we fight the good fight of faith, we are enforcing that victory in our lives. This fight does not mean we fight the devil for Jesus has already defeated him for us. The fight of faith is maintaining our belief, confession, and action in line with God’s Word. Circumstances will try to get you to doubt and to magnify what you see in the natural.

To stay in faith you must refuse to be moved by what you see, but instead maintain a faith filled confession of the Word of God. Scripture tells us having done all to stand, stand therefore. You must not allow what you see or feel to discourage you. The primary battle will be in the mind as thoughts contrary to what God’s Word says will try to get you to doubt God.

You must counter these thoughts with God’s Word. The Word of God tells us that God has provided for us all things that pertain to life and godliness. So act like the Word is true because it is. Hold fast to your confession of faith declaring what God’s Word says right in the face of any challenges in the natural, for the victory is yours!

More Than Conquerors

Romans 8:37

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Through our relationship in Christ Jesus and what He has done for us we are more than conquerors through His shed blood. How do we walk in this victorious life Christ has provided for us? We overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the Word of our testimony, and we love not our own lives. The first thing we must understand is to walk in the revelation of what the blood of Jesus has done for us. We have to believe in our hearts that when Jesus shed His blood, that provided a new covenant we are to walk in.

You must know what your new covenant rights are according to the Word of God. When you know what your rights are you must declare those rights as already done with your own words to take possession of what is now yours. Like the children of Israel these promises have already been given to us, but we must take possession of what Christ has provided through a faith filled confession. We must also chose to walk in God’s will for our life as shown to us through His Word, not our own will.

For example, faith works through love. If we know what belongs to us and have a faith filled confession but choose to not walk in love, our faith will not work. We must lay our life down and choose this new way life He has planned for us. The payment has been made and the new covenant promises await. Now take possession of what is yours for you are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus who loves you!

This Is Eternal Life

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Death refers to being separated from God who is life itself. It was sin that separated man from his relationship with God. Most think eternal life refers to the future when we go to heaven. It includes the future but Jesus said in John 17:3 that eternal life was to know God the Father and Jesus Christ His Son. Because of the blood Jesus shed all who receive this life have had their sin washed away and can now know the Father and His Son, and this is the very reason He came.

You should not wait to get to heaven to get to know your heavenly Father. In the book of James we are told that if we draw near to God He will draw near to us. Take time to experience eternal life now by going to God’s Word and fellowshipping with Him. Every time you open God’s Word and listen to what it says, God is speaking to you.

Take time to pray and develop your relationship with God. Don’t do all the talking, take time to get quite and listen. The door of fellowship has been opened. When you spend time with God He rubs off on you. You will know true peace and contentment if you will just make it a priority to spend time with Him. Get to know God, not just know about Him, and you will experience the gift of eternal life.

Consider Christ

Romans 6:11

Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Christ took our sin on the cross and freed us from sin and all that came as a result of sin; sickness, disease, poverty, lack, fear, worry, stress, etc. Consider yourself dead to all that came through sin and alive to all that we now have through Christ. Stop thinking about and magnifying what you see in the natural; instead meditate on and magnify what Christ has done for you. Scripture teaches us that as a man thinks, so is he.

If you see yourself sick, lacking what you need, or defeated, you are going to continue to allow the very things that Christ has freed you from to over take you. You need to renew your mind to what God says about you. Consider all that Christ has done for you instead of what you may be facing in the natural. We walk by faith, not by sight.

To do so you must consider the Word above everything else. Stay in the Word of God and focus your thoughts on what it says. The Word is truth and even though it may be true that you are facing something in the natural, the truth will change what may be currently true in your life. What you see is subject to change. What are you considering?

Peace With God

Romans 5:1

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,…

Through Jesus we have been given peace with God. The word peace means to be one with, a state of harmony. Once born again we become one spirit with the Lord. As Jesus is so are we in this present age because we are one with Him. There is no battle between you and God because you are one with Him. The devil does all he can to convince believers that God is mad at them so that they won’t draw near to God.

But when Jesus bore our sin He also bore the punishment our sin deserved.

The Word of God tells us we will not face the wrath of God to come. Scripture also teaches us that those who keep their minds fixed on God and not on the things around them, God will keep them in perfect peace for they trust in Him. You do this by getting a picture of God’s truths established in your heart. When you do peace will be the result.

When we know that we have peace with God and we walk in that peace by focusing our thoughts on Him, trusting in God, peace will surround you. You won’t be depressed, full of fear, and doubt God. Peace will be present and therefore your faith will work for you, leading you into a victorious life. So don’t run from God, run to Him and focus your thoughts upon Him, because He has given us peace.

We Have Been Saved

John 3:17

For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

Through Jesus Christ we have been saved. The word saved is defined as rescued, preserved, healed, restored, made well. All of this is a part of God’s salvation package. To receive what we have available to us we must by faith see these things as already done, for in the eyes of God they are.

For example when someone today receives new life by accepting Jesus into their heart they become born again. But the moment they did so is not when salvation was provided by God, it was already available, for 2,000 years ago Jesus gave His life for us. They just chose to receive what God said was already done.

So it is with all we have in this salvation package. We must see it as already done and not something God is going to do and take it by faith. Take time to meditate on the promises you have been given in Christ Jesus until that Word get’s in you. Once it does faith becomes active and you can receive what Christ has provided for you.

You Have A Teacher

1 John 2:27

But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.

The Holy Spirit is the One who helps us to get revelation of the things of God in our heart. When revelation comes faith is there. It’s like walking into a dark room not being able to see the way out and then the Holy Spirit flips the light switch on. Once that happens you can see the way to go and act upon the Word of God.

A vital key in receiving this revelation is in how we read and listen to the teaching of God’s Word. Whether reading or hearing the Word taught, you must first recognize it is God speaking to you. It is not man’s words but God’s, for all scripture is given by God. Secondly you must give your full attention to God’s Word and not become distracted with other things. Pay close attention to what you are hearing.

Third you must learn to take verses that stand out to you and meditate on those verses consistently. Reading and hearing makes you aware of the Word, meditating on it is how you absorb God’s Word. Finally put what you know into practice for you deceive yourself if you are a hearer and not a doer of the Word. Put these truths into practice and His Word will become alive in you by the Holy Spirit.
