I Have Victory in Jesus
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
God gives you victory.
For every battle, challenge, or problem you face this week, God has already given you the victory. You never have to walk in defeat because God’s word promises you victory.
Sometimes life throws you a curve. You begin the day like every other day, and out of the blue, a major issue hits you right in the face. Maybe it’s a doctor’s report, or something happens to a friend or loved one. Maybe you’re faced with a problem at work, a layoff, or a thousand other things.
In every situation, God promises victory.
God gives you victory in two different ways.
God gives victory to overcome.
It may be through supernatural intervention, or through Him working in your circumstance, but God brings resolution to the problem.
He may give you special insight to solve the problem, or may open a new door that removes the problem. Whatever the case, God is working and you have the victory.
God gives victory to endure.
Sometimes God fixes the problem and other times He fixes you in the problem. The word endure shows up 37 times in the New Testament. Endurance builds your faith in God and your witness to the world.
God gives you supernatural strength and courage to face your problems and patience to walk through them.
Endurance is your confession that you are trusting God to work on your behalf. You are submitting your life into His hands. You are giving Him time to work in your circumstances to bring about His glory.
Never give up in the middle of the crisis, God’s hand is working and the answer may be just around the corner.
Look at that promise once again.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. – 1 Corinthians 15:57
Confess this with me.
I have victory in every situation through Christ.
Sometimes God fixes the problem, and sometimes He fixes me in the problem.
God uses endurance to build my faith.
Thank you Jesus, for giving me victory today.
