The Life Of Victory – Pastor Chris
Friday, September 15, 2017
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).
When God raised Jesus from the dead, you were raised together with Him. Now, you’re seated with Him, “Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come” (Ephesians 1:21).
It makes no difference what happens in this world, you’re more than a conqueror; you’re a success. God has given you a life greater than sickness, disease, failure and death; a life of peace, strength, health and prosperity; the victorious life.
The knowledge of these realities should evidently change the way you talk, walk or act. Don’t ask God to give you peace, strength, health, prosperity or make you a success. These and more are all encapsulated in the glorious life you have in Christ. I’ll give you examples.
First, the Lord Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you….” That means He has become your peace. Secondly, Psalm 27:1 says, “…the LORD is the strength of my life….” Thirdly, He’s made you healthy and strong. Isaiah 33:24 says, “And the inhabitant (of Zion) shall not say, I am sick….”
In addition, He’s given you prosperity. 1 Corinthians 3:21 says, “Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours.” Then Philippians 4:19 tells us, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” That means there’s no lack in your life, for the Lord supplies all your needs. Psalm 1:3 describes you as a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth fruit in and out of season; and whatsoever you do shall prosper. What a blessing!
Now that you’re born again, you’re a bundle of success. You belong in God’s Kingdom, His realm of life where you reign victoriously with Christ.
Dear Father, I thank you for the glorious life in Christ! I walk in righteousness and exercise dominion over devils, sickness, and the negativities of life today and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
