Throughout this past summer we have enjoyed the spectacle of seeing men and women crowned ‘Olympic Champion’ right here in our city. I want to remind you that as believers we are also victors over every area of our lives.
Jesus is the Winner of winners! He’s the Champion of the World! He’s the totally triumphant Victor! He is the all-prevailing, ever-conquering first-and-foremost God. And he has presented you with his victory, with his world championship!
That’s right, Christ’s victory is yours, in Jesus’ name – it is a free and unconditional gift!
Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
Time and again we read in the Gospels how Jesus manifested his victory over all the power of the enemy!
He overcame the tempter in the wilderness.
He pushed back the devil in his ministry of miracles.
He resisted the adversary in the garden of Gethsemane.
He smashed the destroyer on the cross.
And he rose triumphant over Satan in his mighty resurrection.
One day, Jesus is coming back to the earth to demonstrate his victory to the whole world. And, when he does, his church will share in that triumph.
As a believer, you have already overcome the evil one through the victory of your faith. The anointing that you have received from God has broken, once and for all, the heavy yoke of bondage in your life.
Through the name of Jesus, you have God’s own authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions. By faith, you share Christ’s power over all the force of the enemy!
You are the world champion
God wants you to use the victory that he’s given you. He wants you to live in his victory as a world champion, super heavyweight overcomer!
Whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith. 1 John 5:4
It is time to stop running away from the devil. Turn round and face him, in Jesus’ name. Resist him now, and he will run away from you!
Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will accomplish for you today.
The Lord will ght for you. Exodus 14:13-14
The Lord of hosts has transformed you into a far better warrior than Samson. You’re a conqueror fit to take on the Goliaths of our day. You’re an Elijah who can face down the false prophets of today.
Enter into Jesus’ victory now! Start flexing your spiritual muscles! Use this declaration to enforce his victory over every rebellious circumstance in-andaround your life.
