Take Heart—You Have the Victory

jesus-gives-us-victoryI have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.—John 16:33 (NLT)

My friend, Jesus came to give us peace. Yes, there will be many things that we will go through in life and some of it will be difficult…but that is no reason to give over to it or give up. We absolutely must find strength in the fact that regardless of the circumstance, the Lord has already gained and given us the victory!

We have cowered to life’s hardships for too long—it is time to stand up and “stand still and see the salvation of the LordExodus 14:13. I believe, the standing still part does not mean inactivity; but to exercise full trust and faith in the fact that our God is above all and has already given us the victory over all that would ever come against us in life!

We have given in to the pressures of things long enough. It is time to take a stand against whatever is standing against us! We have the victory in Christ! It is to our advantage to call for and enforce the rule of God in our lives; He gave us the authority to do so. Jesus said: “Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.”—Luke 10:19 (Amplified)

We must move in faith in the midst of our storms…not in fear. Our faith has to be in God and the victory that He has given us. Fear is trusting that we will lose, that things will not work for us. Fear believes that good will not come to us and we will fail—it really is calling God a liar!

We do not call God a liar…for He cannot lie, and we are Believers! We believe against all circumstances which tell us we will not make it this time.

  • When we are sick…we believe we are healed;
  • When broke…we believe we are abundantly supplied;
  • When confused…we believe we have the wisdom of God; and on and on.

Therefore, my friends do no fall prey to the traps and tricks of the enemy…have faith in God, for He has given us the victory over all the circumstances of life!
