Topic: You Are In The Arena Of Victory [May 1, 2018]
“But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.” Psalm 3:3
No matter what they have said about you, no matter how many weapons that had been fashioned against you, no matter how impossible it is, I announce to you that you are coming out. There is hope for you! The book of Job 14:7 declares: “For there is hope of a tree if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease”. (KJV) You are going to bounce back. You can’t serve God and lose. When you decided to serve God and made a choice to receive Christ into your heart, you automatically stepped into the arena of victory. Beloved, you are now in the arena of victory! No more defeat for you. The devil can try but he cannot succeed.
I am so excited to be a child of God! It is the greatest thing that can ever happen to anyone in this life. I have no regret! Being a Spirit-filled and sanctified child of God is the greatest thing. As believers, we are the greatest asset on earth. Without us on earth, this world will dissipate. Know, therefore, that you are important.
If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things have passed away, all things have become new. You have been sanctified. You are holy! You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar person, a holy nation, set aside, to show forth the praises of him who has brought us out of darkness into his marvellous light. That devil is a liar. You will manifest! It is not over for you! I don’t care how low you are, I don’t care how tough it is, you shall be celebrated. Because you are standing in the arena of victory, evil shall bow before you. What has been pursuing you is now turning around. You will not die prematurely. You will not be disappointed. The enemy will not violate you. You will fulfil destiny.
