But thanks be unto God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

1 Corinthians 15:57

LIGHT FOR NOW: You are not trying to overcome, you have already overcome.

What makes you a victor in life is because you are in Christ Jesus, the Son of the Living God having been united with him in love; in his death, burial and resurrection. You must note that your union with Christ is an inseparable one (Romans 8:35). It is this inseparable union of love with Christ that makes the believer in Christ Jesus maintain his victory over life’s circumstances. Apostle Paul in Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord: that in all these things we are more than conquerors”. Everything listed in the above passage has been conquered by you as a believer in Christ. To be more than a conqueror means that you didn’t have to go to battle. Someone else fought for you and handed over the victory he won to you. Yes! Christ fought on your behalf and won and delivered the victory into your hands. Hallelujah!!!

You are not trying to overcome but you have already overcome. You are born of God and whatsoever is born of God has overcome the world. You have already overcome the storms and circumstances of life, in Christ Jesus. If you are born of the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus, then you have already overcome whatever life throws at you. You are more than a conqueror. Your victory is in Christ Jesus.

INSTRUCTION: Enforce the victory handed over to you in Christ Jesus.

PRAYER: Lord, I enforce my victory over life circumstances, in Jesus Name.  Amen.

QUOTE: Jesus is the Love of God expressed towards man.
