Victorious. It’s what we are in Christ. Through Him, we overcome sin and death, the works of the enemy and this world. Do we always FEEL victorious? No. But regardless of how we feel, we can be assured that in Christ, victory is our portion.
**SO sorry about this week’s devotional coming a day late ladies! Life has been FULL around here and I thought I had scheduled it!
“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:57-58
“Nikos” or “Victory” in the above verse means:
a conquest (concretely), that is, (by implication) triumph: – victory.
God wants His Children to be victorious, but sometimes, we need to learn how to walk in victory. Being victorious is not entirely about overcoming individual circumstances. Walking in victory is simply walking by faith. It is by faith that we obtain victory in this life.
1 John 5:2-5 says:
Through faith in Jesus Christ, through His Word, and by DOING His Word, we overcome and gain victory in every area of our lives. Its truly is that simple.
Got your list?
In a nutshell, God told me to not to be a Jonah.
Pray with me:
Father, thank You for Your Word which causes me to overcome and walk in victory in Christ Jesus. Help me to fill myself with the Word so that I may overcome my earthly struggles and live victoriously for Your Glory. In Jesus name, Amen.
