“But thanks be unto God, which giveth us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” –
LIGHT FOR NOW: A believer does not pray for victory. He is already in victory.
When you are in Christ, you live a life of victory. This is why the believer in Christ does not pray for victory; he enforces or stands fast in the victory given to him in Christ Jesus. A believer in Christ is born of faith and he is called born again. So, because Jesus came out victorious on our behalf, we are also victorious. “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith”. Circumstances and situations of life should not define you. Our identity is defined by the victory established in the Word of God which is expressed in Jesus Christ. The believer in Christ or the born again man is the man who is already a victor and is more than a conqueror, because he is in Christ. Your present life is the same with the current state of Christ, not as he was but, “as he is over there so are we in this world” (1John 4:17).
This is because we rose with Him from the dead and our life is now hid in Christ with God (Colossians 3:1-3). We have been united and made one with Christ the Son of God. This is the reason despite the challenges and persecution of the church, it is still waxing stronger because the church which is you is a triumphant and victorious church which the gates of hell shall not prevail against. Therefore, you cannot afford to give in or give up now. Hold onto God and believe His word, for therein is your victory made manifest.
INSTRUCTION: Enforce the victory handed over to you in Christ Jesus.
PRAYER: Lord, I enforce my victory, in Jesus Name. Amen.
QUOTE: A believer in Christ walks in constant victory.
