Summary: We're not fighting for Victory, we're fighting from Victory, because of what Jesus has already done for us!
Victory is Mine!
Every promise in the Bible, can be and are yours today!
And just in case your wondering there is at least 7000 promises in the Bible although they are not all referred to as promises.
God cannot lie and so every time He says He is going to do something it can be counted as a promise.
You know even with facts like that, sometimes you still have to remind yourself, that victory really is yours!
We're not fighting for Victory, we're fighting from Victory, because of what Jesus has already done for us!
We all have a choice to make daily, to trust in Jesus and live in Victory, or trust in the flesh and live in defeat.
Jesus is busy working behind the scenes to bless you and show you favor,
The Devil is working hard at trying to stop everything and anything he can, that’s good happening in your life
John 10:10 NKJ
10. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Jesus came, so we could have His best, His Abundance raining down on us, in our lives.
Can you imagine, an Abundance of Jesus Favor raining down on us all the time, He came so we could have it Abundantly!
Lu 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread
Isn’t that just like the devil? “If You are the Son of God” Then show me!
Lu 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
Jesus didn’t have to prove anything to him,
Lu 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan:
The devil knew he was whipped, but that didn’t stop him, it never does.
He still uses the same tricks, on all Gods children if they will let him,
We need to also remind him, Victory is mine get behind!
Sometimes we need to do it daily and sometimes when he thinks he’s got the upper hand on us; it’s moment by moment!
Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Jesus handed us the Victory when He overcame the cross.
The Devil knows, exactly what you have right to use, with a relationship with Jesus and God the Father!
He also knows, everything you are entitled to,
He knows very well, what the presence and power of God is capable of doing!
The greatest victory the Devil has over the Church and Christians Is cheating every man, woman, boy and girl out the victory God has already given to you!
It doesn’t matter who you are.
It doesn’t matter how much or how little you have.
If you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior,
You are a threat to him.
His thing is to steal, kill and cheat you ought of everything you have, or will ever have.
Lets look at some Scripture.
1 Sam. 27 1-4
1Sa 27:1 And David said in his heart, I shall now perish one day by the hand of Saul: there is nothing better for me than that I should speedily escape into the land of the Philistines; and Saul shall despair of me, to seek me any more in any coast of Israel: so shall I escape out of his hand.
2 And David arose, and he passed over with the six hundred men that were with him unto Achish, the son of Maoch, king of Gath.
3 And David dwelt with Achish at Gath, he and his men, every man with his household, even David with his two wives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the Carmelitess, Nabal's wife.
4 And it was told Saul that David was fled to Gath: and he sought no more again for him.
Fear is one of the biggest tools that Devil has.
Fear caused David, to go to the land of the Philistines,
They despised him, but respected him from the moment he defeated their warrior, Goliath!
Achish, the Philistine king, accepted David and his army, not out of friendship, but in the knowing what a dangerous enemy David could be if forced to fight. So he gave him Ziklag as a place to live.
David is now feeling safe.
If you want to try to take care of your self God will let you.
The devil knows when you are under the protection of God or yourself.
The Devil knows what God has planned for your life and he will do anything to make sure that you stay under the situation.
