(Spiritual) death provided sin its platform and power to reign from, now grace has taken over sovereignty through righteousness to introduce life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ over us. (Mirror Bible)
Are you living a triumphant life?
You cannot deny the existence of sin, neither can you deny what sin produces (1 John 1:8 and Romans 6:23).
Sometimes you might feel you are fighting a losing battle.
Romans 7:21-24 Here’s an important principle I’ve discovered: regardless of my desire to do the right thing, it is clear that evil is never far away. 22 For deep down I am in happy agreement with God’s law; 23 but the rest of me does not concur. I see a very different principle at work in my bodily members, and it is at war with my mind; I have become a prisoner in this war to the rule of sin in my body. 24 I am absolutely miserable! Is there anyone who can free me from this body where sin and death reign so supremely? (The Voice)
You are not fighting a losing battle. You have grace.
Titus 2:11-12 God’s marvelous grace has manifested in person, bringing salvation for everyone. 12 This same grace teaches us how to live each day as we turn our backs on ungodliness and indulgent lifestyles, and it equips us to live self-controlled, upright, godly lives in this present age. (The Passion Translation)
Grace is not just the unmerited favor of God that secures your place in heaven. Grace is also God’s empowerment for you to complete the task He has assigned to you. Grace is the sufficiency of God giving you victory. There is no waste of time or useless activity with Him. God uses everything you go through, even what seems like defeat, for your development, maturity, and perfection. There are no loosing battles because Jesus conquered death, hell, and the grave (1 Corinthians 15:55 and Revelation 1:18). The battlefield is in your mind. Take authority over what you are thinking.
2 Corinthians 10:5 We are demolishing arguments and ideas, every high-and-mighty philosophy that pits itself against the knowledge of the one true God. We are taking prisoners of every thought, every emotion, and subduing them into obedience to the Anointed One. (The Voice)
Speak what the Father speaks about you and live in the power of His grace through obedience to His word. Then you will live victoriously and put the devil under your feet.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for Your grace. Though I am always grateful You don’t give me what I deserve when I do displeasing things; I am more grateful You empower me to do the things You are pleased with and have ordained for me to do. You placed a call on my life, and then You began using my life experiences to equip me and sustain me. You work through me so I can fulfill Your vision for me. When I think I’m not able, You show me, I can because You are with me and I am in You. When I feel like the task is overwhelming and I am tempted to quit, You give me a way of escape so I can bear it. I honor You for what You do in my life. When I look at myself, I stand in awe of what You have accomplished…
My Gog My God..thank you for a victorious life no matter what!!! On Jesus Name!!!
