Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 2 Cor. 2:14
As far as your maker is concerned, victory is yours always.
Either you are falling or rising, failing or being successful, you can still enjoy triumph by maintaining victorious attitude.
Remain in the Lord, always!
Your Lord can never and has never lost any battle. If God be for you, who can be against you? The secret of triumphant living is living in the Lord, always!
So long you remain one with God, your victory is sure.
Know the purpose of trials and temptations. Trials and temptation have come to prepare you for promotion. No test no testimony.
But they can also take your focus away from God, the source of your victory. Wise victors permit oppositions to chase them to God and use trials to bring out the treasures in their earthen body. Like fire, trials bring out the best in our gold.
Know the limits of trials and temptation. Trials and temptations are common and temporary. Every problem and opposition has an expiry date. It is for a moment. Even you have termination day. It is a light affliction compared to the eternal weight of glory waiting whoever will persevere. The good fight of faith is a battle of endurance. The goal is never to give up.
Take the responsibility to face your trials and triumph. Either you call it trial of faith or temptation from the devil, it is your reaction that determines if you will fail or triumph. Stop blaming your parents, partner, peers or other people. Rather choose to make your suffering a stepping stone to success. Winning begins with taking responsibility for your trials and triumphs. Praise on!
Satan’s weapon for defeat is discouragement and doubt.
Triumphant lifestyle praises God and brings Him glory.
Why worrying takes you away from God’s presence, praise takes you beyond his gate into his court.
No wonder many triumphant believers are praise crazy.
The joy of the Lord is your strength!
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Cor. 10:13
Opposition has come to keep you in the same position. To prevail over negative situations of life, you need to persistently pursue necessary change to progress. Victory journey begins with change of mind.
How do you see your challenge? You need to start seeing problem as a stepping stone to success rather than as a hindrance. To win your battle of life, you need to understand that:
Every challenge is common.Yours can’t be worse than dead Lazarus that was still brought to life after four stinking days. Only the problem you commonise can be defeated.
God is good and devil is evil. God is your solution not problem. God is faithful to deliver us if we are faithful to depend on Him.
2. You are able
The challenge is not beyond your power. God will not permit you to be tested beyond your ability. Common, you can prevail if you choose to!
3. There is a way out
Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ”. How do you see yourself? Are you like a cockroach or are you a giant killer?
Do not stop!
The world is ruled by self-fulfilling prophecies. If you think you can, yes you can. If you think you cannot, yes you cannot. It is always to you according to your faith. Fight the good fight of faith.
Your victory is sure if you do not stop. I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. Mother Teresa
You are an overcomer. Think about all the problems, challenges, troubles and tough time you have passed through in the past years. You're a surely a survivor, a success, an overcomer!
After all that you have gone through, you are still standing. Smile and celebrate!!!
