Jesus The Victorious: Our Sure Win
By Margaret D Mitchell
What’s your concept of victory? Reaching all of your targets in life? Beating your competitor? Or simply making an attempt to cross the end line the perfect you possibly can?
Mates, God has increased for you than any of this.
And better begins with Him alone.
Psalm 24:10 TPT asks us, “…’Who is that this King of Glory?’ He’s the Lord of Victory, armed and prepared for battle, the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts! Sure, he’s the King of Glory!”
In two circumstances of persecution, Jesus identifies Himself as “Jesus the Victorious” (Acts 9:5, 22:eight, Mk 1:24 TPT).
Discover right here, that even in, and particularly within the face of persecution, Jesus stays in His id and authority over all.
After figuring out Himself to those persecutors, Jesus swiftly delivered them from that which stricken Him and held them again.
Jesus made them victorious over darkness.
He actually liberated them.
Jesus set every of them free on a brand new path for His increased functions past themselves.
By His Spirit, they turned extra like Him.
And plenty of witnessed this.
Mates, God loves to present us victory (Ps 44:3, 149:four).
And we’re determined to establish with His Victorious Identify.
Like Jesus, we will authoritatively wage conflict towards persecution with His highly effective Identify. We could be sure to beat evil from a place of victory that Christ gained for us on the cross.
Simply imagine, and act accordingly.
This inheritance, by means of the grace of Jesus, is appropriated by His indwelling persuasiveness, which is His imparted religion to us.
1 John 5:4 TPT explains, “You see, each little one of God overcomes the world, for our religion is the victorious energy that triumphs over the world.”
However can we, like Jesus, at all times select to use our victory-power of religion, within the face of persecution? Or can we tolerate pointless affliction outdoors of God’s will? Can we endure needlessly? Can we make it higher or worse for ourselves and others?
Obedience to God is an element—each within the quantity of victory we obtain, in addition to within the timing thereof.
Abiding with The Lord and trusting Him because the Spirit of Knowledge is essential in victorious decision-making.
Proverbs 4:9 TPT says, “You may be adorned with magnificence and style, and knowledge’s glory will wrap itself round you, making you victorious within the race.”
Psalm 118:13 TPT declares, “…I used to be able to fall, however you helped me to triumph, and collectively we overcame all of them.”
So we see right here that victory is a joint effort that requires our participation.
2 Corinthians 2:14 TPT reveals, “God at all times makes his grace seen in Christ, who contains us as companions of his limitless triumph. By our yielded lives he spreads the perfume of the data of God all over the place we go.”
God’s prevailing Presence stands in victory over all, as He shares His love with us (Songs 7:7).
Due to this fact, regardless that we take part, our last Authority and Ruler over all, who’s God, finally determines our degree of enhance (victory) (Ps 11:14).
Proverbs 21:31 TPT tells us, “You are able to do your greatest to organize for the battle, however final victory comes from the Lord God.”
God watches over us and sees the motives and actions of each coronary heart.
He does all the things He can, by His faithfulness, to maintain victory in our lives: God brings His salvation. He defends us and preserves us. He leads us into all reality. He protects our minds and hearts with the armor of reality and holiness. And He wraps His glory-presence, which is victory, round us as a protecting defend (Eph 6:14; Ps 7:10; 18:35, 43).
Typically, we’ve got to “push by means of” to victory by God’s Victorious Identify, His Superb Presence and superior energy to “defeat each enemy” (Ps 44:5).
Even throughout seasons of (long-suffering) endurance, God has purposed us to be victorious: to make us stronger in Him for His Kingdom functions (Ps 55:22).
God, Himself, is enduring of life and time. He’s eternal. He gives Himself to us because the highest-ranking Supply of perpetual energy. He’s at all times with us and continually intercedes for us. Even when our greatest prayer is a humble whisper, He rescues us from bother.
Matthew 12:20 TPT assures us, “He gained’t brush apart the bruised and damaged. He will probably be mild with the weak and feeble, till his victory releases justice.”
I really like what Isaiah 35:4 TPT says, “…’Be sturdy and by no means afraid. Look, right here comes your God! He’s breaking by means of to present you victory! He involves avenge your enemies. With divine retribution he comes to avoid wasting you!’”
God’s want is to deliver us out higher than earlier than, to saturate us with His goodness (Ps 66:12).
Psalm 92:10 TPT affirms this by saying, “Your anointing has made me sturdy and mighty. You’ve empowered my life for triumph by pouring contemporary oil over me.”
Tune of Songs 6:10 TPT assures us by saying, “Take a look at you now— arising because the dayspring of the daybreak, truthful because the shining moon. Shiny and good because the solar in all its energy. Astonishing to behold as an imposing military waving banners of victory.”
Even dying can not conquer a believer in Christ (1 Cor 15:54-55). A method or one other, dying can solely trigger God’s lovers to rise increased in Him, as true life is restored.
Pray with me if you’ll…
Pricey Lord, Thank You for Your divine reward of victory and for bringing me victorious salvation by means of Your completed work on the cross. Thank You that Your victory releases justice on my behalf (Matt 12:20). I repent of working in any and all doubt, hopelessness, and injustice that results in defeat. I resign each spirit of defeat and lies that the enemy has tried to deliver. I command despair and oppression to depart from me now, in Jesus’ Mighty Identify of Victory. And I name forth, the Spirit of the Dwelling God to stand up in me to deliver new life and contemporary victorious hope (Heb 3:6). I declare that I’m let loose, actually liberated, and positioned in nice freedom and abundance. I’m victorious due to You. Thank You for rising me in victory (Ps 92:12). Thanks for shielding me and guiding me in victory. Thank You for serving to me reign victorious going ahead. Thank You, Lord, for Your love for me and for making me “greater than a conqueror” over “each type of evil as a victorious soldier of Jesus, the Anointed One” (Ro 8:37, 2 Tim 2:3). My coronary heart is Yours, Lord. With You, I do know we will do that…victoriously. Amen.
