“NEVER A VICTIM, ALWAYS A VICTOR”
The devil’s strategy is sly and deceptive constantly trying to slip a lie into your mind that will steal your focus and weaken your faith. Recently many different afflictions of pain have hit me. Constant pain can hinder your focus and try to weaken your faith. It can make you feel you are losing the battle and bring confusion. I had pain in so many places I did not know for which one to request prayer. It became ridiculous. In my mind I was thinking the enemy hates me and is attacking me because he wants to hold me back. This may have some truth to it but it was the wrong thinking. It was not faith thinking. The measure of difficulty, or trouble, or pain, or crisis we might face does not change the truth that the Just shall live by faith. We live and move and have our being by the faith of Jesus within us. It is Christ in us the hope of glory.
Jesus said to me so clear, “Janee you are never a victim of your enemies or any circumstances; but in everything you are the victor. You are always the Victor for you belong to me and I have made you to always triumph. I lead you forth from a victory I won completely. When I said from the cross, “it is finished,” there was nothing left to conquer. Now there is nothing you cannot overcome in my strength and my grace. There is nothing you cannot triumph over through My blood, My Word and My Sprit In you. No matter what you face in this life never forget you are my trophy, my treasure, my beloved, always the victorious, and always the triumphant. Holy Spirit reminds me of this scripture. And it had fresh meaning like fresh bread for the day.
In 2 Corinthians 2:14-15 AMP listen to His voice here:
“But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere, For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God, [discernible like] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing”
So I thank God, the scripture and the Lord’s voice changed everything inside me. His word says to me that when I get up every morning for another day I am already a winner. No matter what I face I can expect something good from it. I can come out a winner. I am more than a conqueror because Christ Jesus has already won the complete victory and given it to me. My part of this victory is to just believe and align my heart, mind and mouth up with the truth of what God says regardless of the reality that may be present. Sometimes you sing the truth, sometimes you speak the truth, sometimes you just rest in it and sometimes having done all you just stand on it steadfast letting the hope of God within you anchor your soul into His presence.
You are never a victim. You are always a victor” Janee
