Victory Is Yours

September 11, 2012

My thoughts were on the promise of victory.

 John wrote in the 1st Epistle “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?”

 The assurance of the believer is based on principles. Now, the dictionary has the word “assurance” defined as a promise, a certainty about something & a positive declaration to give confidence. How ironic, that the principles of God’s Word does exactly as the definition explains.

We are promised by our Father, that if we believe, all things are possible.(Matt 19:26)

Some Christians feel that they are saved, while others know they are saved. We must understand that the promise is not based off of “feelings”, but of principles that must be adhered.

Jesus is in our hearts because of these and other principles: we witness the Word, a prayer is answered, the understanding of Scripture, we keep His commandments & we love one another. We must remember that The Apostle Paul wrote “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities….”  

I have said before, He that loves us above all things, will not let us fail. So while we talk about victory, we must assume there is a defeat. Unfortunately, because of the play on words, it’s in our vocabulary. If for some odd reason, we “feel” like we’ve failed or have been defeated, then truly, what do we believe in. As believer’s, we already know that the “wicked one” has been and will be defeated. The Bible clearly speaks of defeat when it comes to him, but not in any manner when it comes to our Father. So I ask that we throw away that mentality and replace it with the understanding that we are our Father’s children. Paul wrote “And you hath He quickened(made alive), who were dead in trespasses and sins”. Paul was praying that we would recognize what God’s power has done in us and for us. How can we be losers? How can we be defeated? We cant! Not if we believe that the promise of victory from our Father is the principle that we’ll live by.

 With that being said….

 Jeremiah wrote in Lamentations: “Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.”

 Heavenly Father,

We Thank You! We know that in order to receive the victory, we must believe in You. We ask that You open our hearts, minds and spirits to Your principles and lead us to Your understanding. We ask that in Your time Lord, give us the victories that You have promised. And we ask these things in Your Son, our Savior, Jesus name.

Matthew 4:4
