“Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:5
Victory is a sought-after prize many people desire, whether in sports, business, or personal achievements. However, achieving victory comes with a price. The question is, are you willing to pay the price? Remember, 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. The Bible says in 1 John 5:4 that “everyone born of God overcomes the world.” This means that victory is already available to us through our faith in Christ.
But what does it mean to pay the price for victory? It means putting in hard work and dedication toward your goal. It means sacrificing your time and energy towards achieving success. It also means enduring setbacks and failures but not giving up on your journey toward victory. However, Ultimately, paying the price for victory requires discipline and perseverance. It’s easy to give up when things get tough or take shortcuts when faced with obstacles, but remember, everything has a tag attached to it; whether you want it for free, cheap, or at all costs, you still have to pay some price.
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.”
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. 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 he paid on our behalf, we are called to live a life full of joy and peace. It is difficult to do this, but he chose 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 the winning side because victory is bound in you, and you will win because Christ in you is a powerful word that evokes images of celebration, triumph, and joy. Amen. 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.” Amen.
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 in Jesus’ name. Amen.
