“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place” – 2 Corinthians 2:14
LIGHT FOR NOW: As believers, we are the trophy of Christ’s victory.
As believers in Christ, we triumph always because our victory is a demonstration of God’s victory and it brings glory to His name. When a believer is overpowered by any circumstances, God is not glorified. God takes pleasure in our continuous victory and triumph, because he has already obtained it for us. It grieves God when believers in Christ do not enforce the victory handed over to them by Christ over the circumstances of life. Hebrews 2:14-15 says, “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage”. Christ has given us victory over all situations and circumstances of life. It is our responsibility to enforce that victory handed over to us in Christ Jesus.
Colossians 2:14-15 says, “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it”. Our anchor scripture for today shows us that our victory is in Christ. This means that Christ won and delivered the victory unto us, those who believe in him. As believers in Christ, we are more than conquerors. 1 John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith”. This is to prove that as believers in Christ, your victory is your faith in Christ Jesus which helps you overcome all the storms of life. Walk in this consciousness throughout the remaining days of this year. You are more than a conqueror.
INSTRUCTION: Keep walking in victory.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the victory I have in Christ. I ask that you help me fully comprehend and walk in the fullness of this victory, in Jesus Name. Amen.
QUOTE: Your victory in Christ is always.
