For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
God did not send His Son for us to be defeated. However, many Christians live a defeated life. The devil defeats them mentally everyday and they allow the devil to have that kind of power over them.
As believers we have been delivered from the bondage of death and we walk in the newness of life. We died to our old lives and now we are alive in Christ. That means we have authority over the devil. We have victory over the devil.
We have the choice to live a victorious life everyday. We often focus on the future life in Heaven being victorious and perfect but it can be that way for us here and now; once we believe it. Jesus raised us up into a life of victory.
Whatever you’re facing today, just know that you are not defeated. Have a change of mindset. Get it in your mind and in your heart that Christ demolished and crushed whatever is limiting you from living victoriously today.
Jesus stood up and rebuked the winds and the waves and they obeyed. So can we! John 14:12 says, “Most assuredly, I (Jesus) say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”
Lord, You have given to me all that I need to live a victorious life here today. Help me to have the wisdom and understanding of Your word and truth that will set me free from the bondage of the devil.
