“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:57).
As a Christian, you’re born into a life of victory. The Bible says “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world…” (1 John 5:4). Now that you have come into the kingdom, God expects you to experience that victory everyday. As far as God is concerned, there is no challenge big enough and no demon powerful enough to stop you from walking in victory! Hallelujah! The only thing you need do is to walk in the light of that victory.
What does it mean to walk in the light of your victory? That means to live with the consciousness that you’re a victor in Christ Jesus. It means to have the mindset of a victor. The Bible lets us know that as Christians, we are partakers of the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4). In other words, you have God’s nature of success and victory; you’re indomitable in this life. Have this consciousness. Let it become your meditation, that you’re an over-comer and a victor in Christ Jesus! With such a mindset, the challenges you face will be bread for you.
Understand that when God looks at you, He doesn’t see you as someone in need of deliverance or help. He sees you strong, full of the Holy Ghost and power; He sees one who is more than a conqueror! You have to agree with His picture of you and say, “Yes, Lord! I will be that man you’ve called me to be. Nothing can put me down, because I walk in the light of my victory over the world, over the devil and over the circumstances of life!”
Dear Father, thank you for bringing me forth into a life of continuous victory! I refuse to be subject to the crippling principles of the world, because I walk in the light of my victory today and everyday, in the mighty Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
