In order to walk in victory you must first faithfully submit to God and trust the battle is already won! There is a lot of negative stuff circulating in our world today and I know it’s easy to feel defeated! However, I got good news for you! Even though things are bad we serve victorious God!
God has equipped every saint to walk in victory despite the trials and temptations we deal with on a daily basis. He knows we will face trials and temptations of many kinds (James 1:1-2). So, He gave us the Bible, which is His Word, to teach us about Him and to teach us how to act and think as believers. If you read God’s Word, memorize God’s Word, and obey God’s Word then you will be equipped to walk in victory. You will then be living under the authority of God instead of walking on your own.
Each and every believer is filled with purpose even before the day we were conceived in our mother’s womb (Ps 139:16). God has a plan that He has called us to walk out in it’s entirety for His glory. So it’s up to us to faithful declare out of our mouths and over every circumstance that we more than a conqueror. We are a world overcomer. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Our faith is the victory that overcomes the things of this dying world.
So, if you are struggling with walking in victory, than it’s time to complete a spiritual self-assessment check:
Is personal sin inhibiting your victory (1 John 1:9)? Are you meditating on God’s word or social media(2 Tim 3:16-17)? Are you preserving through your trials (Gal 6:9-10)? Are you persevering in faith (Rom 5:3-5)? Have you completely submitted to God (Job 22:21)? Do you have a consistent prayer life (Eph 6:18)?
If you answered ‘no’ to one or more of these questions, it’s not too late for you to experience the victory God has purposed for you in your life! It’s time for you to let go of your past and embrace your promising future! When you peel back the onion, you’ll find that victory simply means living a life characterized by authentic fellowship with God.
We are the winners when we defeat the things that hinder our relationship with God and focus our lives on diligently seeking Him. I realize that’s no small task for sure, but the rewards are far greater than the labor: peace, joy, and a closeness with our creator that allows Him to hear us and us to hear Him.
At the end of the day, no matter what happens fully submit to God and never forget that God will never send you into a losing battle. He goes before you, stands beside you and walks behind you!
