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.
(2 Corinthians 2:14)
The day you got born again, you were ushered into a life of unending progress, success and victory. Victory is your birthright. Victory ought to be your lifestyle. For the Christian, life is not designed to be full of “ups and downs”; it is the Father’s will that the life of the new creation increase in brightness every day unto perfection! This truth becomes, even more clearly, manifested as you mature and awaken to the fullness of your calling in Christ.
Jesus came that we may live the God-life. He came to give us zoe. This life guarantees an uphill climb only for the man possessed of it. Zoe declares: No defeat for you! No ups and downs for you! Only upwards and forward in the mighty name of Jesus! It strips away any reason to fail…it drowns excuses in supply…for it places the new creation on the higher vantage ground and causes him to triumph in Christ!
This is the pledge the Father has made in His supply to us, of the riches of the glory of His Grace. He has staked the honour of His throne in His promise to us…”Now thanks be to God who causes us to triumph in Christ…” The Father has given His Word, let us lay a hold on that word of promise and walk in its light. Let us wear the armor of light and tangibly release the aroma of His Grace in every sphere of engagement. We have His Word! It is yea and amen in Christ! It is He who always causes us to triumph in Christ!
The next time darkness ministers defeat and despair to you, remember this Word!
Don’t forget it!
Your victory is sure in Him!
You are Lifted!
