Topic: Consistent Victory By The Word [Friday, July 21st]
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day (Proverbs 4:18).*_
A life of consistent and continuous victory is what Jesus brought to us in the Gospel. The Bible says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). But not many people think this is factual. So, they believe life is sometimes up, and sometimes down, because that’s been their experience. But our theme scripture says, “…the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18).
Battles come your way as a child of God; troubles come to you, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all. The Bible says, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). Tests, trials, and persecution are part of the deal. James 1:2 says, “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations.”
Always be ready and happy to catch some flak; welcome trouble. When they come, win; triumph always. That’s your life: one of consistent triumph in Christ! 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”
What you need is to keep growing your faith through the Word of God. Keep learning and putting the Word to work. The quality of life you’ll live depends on the quality of your knowledge in Christ. So, go for the Word voraciously for we triumph by the Word.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the life of unending victory, and supernatural success which you’ve given me in the Gospel. Thank you, for giving me the ability to weather the storms of life and win. Nothing and no one is big enough to defeat me, because the Greater One lives in me, and as He is, so am I in this world. I win always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
FURTHER STUDY: || Romans 8:35-37 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. ||
|| 2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks [be] unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. ||
