Christ Gives Us Victory
For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.Deuteronomy 20:4
When we call on the Lord, we will experience victory, because the Lord has power over all creation. The ultimate victory is when we take our last breath and step into eternity with our Lord, but the Lord gives us victory to overcome the world while we live our earthy life. For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. (1 John5:4)
What is the victory that overcomes the world? We walk with the Lord living according to his ways, as he molds us to the mind and heart of Christ, which means we can experience victory throughout life because He is always with us, and we depend on him for everything. And He fills our soul with blessings from Heaven; love, peace, and joy; and the confidence that through Christ we can overcome anything. Our trust is always with the Lord, and we seek His will with comfort, knowing we are in His protective hands with our souls destined for heaven.
In this world the Lord provides for our needs, but if we die of hunger we go home to Heaven. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) As Satan turns the world against Christians, we have nothing to fear because life is in our soul, our spirit, and the world cannot touch our spirit. At our last breath our spirit leaves the body and we are still alive, and we go to paradise. Therefore, we have victory on this earth, and a greater victory we leave he earth a go home.
We show the world the spiritual victory we have and we always know Heaven is our home. For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me. (Psalm 31:3) We are comforted by the Lord’s love and by His promise to guide and give us the strength to endure anything Satan puts in our path. May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant. (Psalm 119:76) In this life tragedies will occur, but the Lord will carry us through with his love and his strength. There is nothing but victory when we depend on the lord to guide us through life to eternal home in Heaven.
Today experience victory through Christ. Always expect victory through Christ, and be guided by Christ through down the narrow road to our eternal home.
Prayer: Lord, help to live with victory in Christ and overcome any old bad habits. Guide me to be mindful of victory and not fall into any Satan temptations. Keep my thoughts on things above, and guide me to tell others about salvation in Christ. In Jesus name, Amen
