1 Corinthians 15:57 – “But thanks be to God, He gives us victory through Jesus Christ.”
You may have difficulties in life, but be assured that Jesus is greater than any problem you have. “Greater is He that is in you than he that is of the world” (1 John 4:4). When you look at the world and see storms raging around you, be still and see God’s victorious hand of deliverance. God assured the Israelites not to be worried or faint hearted seeing the horses and chariots of their enemies. God promised that He would be with them (Deut. 20:1-4). God gives us victory over every difficult circumstance. He will go before us and fight for us (Deut. 1:30).
Jesus was tempted for 40 days in the wilderness by the devil (Matt. 4:1-11). Jesus knew the devil’s strategy. He was always vigilant of His adversary, the devil (1 Pet. 5:8). Jesus asked us to watch, pray and always be alert of Satan’s distractions, discouragements, and deceptions (Mark 13:33). Jesus destroyed death and brought life, light and immortality through the gospel (2 Tim. 1:10). Jesus was victorious over death. He was raised from the dead and will never die again; death had no dominion over Him (Rom. 6:9). He was victorious over the evil one. Like Jesus, let us also put on the whole armour of God, so when the day of evil comes, we will be able to stand, and after we have done everything stand (Eph. 6:13).
God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose (Rom. 8:28). Every situation that we face is with God’s knowledge. He works it for our good. Jesus brought hope to humanity. If we endure hardship, we will also reign with Him (2 Tim. 2:12). Our hope should be in Christ alone and we must be optimistic. Jesus will not cast away anyone whom His Heavenly Father has given him (John 6:37). To be victorious, let us pray for His will to be done in our lives.
