Living and Winning!
“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4
Victory has a tag price, but are you willing to pay the price because victory is only reserved for those who are eager and ready to pay its price. It is not enough to talk about faith, but rather have faith that calls unto the deep things of life without wavering or doubting.
Everything has a tag attached to it; either you want it for free, cheap, or at all cost, you still have to pay some price. So, don’t be afraid to pay yours when the time comes. I am sure there will be times when you feel like giving up, but if you keep going, you will find yourself in a place where you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. You will find your way out of the darkness of life and into the light of God’s grace.
Ephesians 6:16 says, “In all circumstances, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one.”
Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross. He was crucified to gain victory over sin and death, not because he did something wrong. He died on the cross because of his love for us and our sins. Through his sacrifice and the price that he paid on our behalf, we are called to live a life that is full of joy and peace. It is not easy to do this, but he had chosen to do so for your sake and mine.
Therefore, do all it takes to become an overcomer and claim your Victory in Christ Jesus. If you are in Christ, and Christ is in you, you are on a winning side because victory is bound in you, and you will win. Galatians 2:20 says, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
1. Oh Lord, help me to be victorious in this battle (mention that battle of life you are facing now)
2. Psalm 60:12 With God, we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
