The Victory Of Faith (1 John 5:4)

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

1 John 5:4 (KJV)

The key to living a life of victory is our faith. We use and develop our faith by setting our hearts and minds upon the promises of God, by meditating on them and confessing them until they become real to us. When we are convinced of the reality of something before we can perceive it through our physical senses, we are living in the victory of faith.

You Are Light In The Lord (Ephesians 5:8-9)

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),

Ephesians 5:8-9 (NKJV)

We have been set free from darkness, and we have been made light in the Lord. Remembering our identity in Christ becomes the foundation for strong and mature faith. As we simply trust in who Jesus has made us to be, we will see the fruits of the Spirit manifesting in our life.

Nothing Can Separate Us From Him (John 10:28)

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 10:28 (KJV)

After we receive Jesus no one and nothing can ever separate us from Him. We have been joined unto Christ for eternity, and no amount of mistakes or shortcomings on our part can undo this union. Our role is to receive His precious gift of righteousness, and all that comes with it by faith.

A Wellspring Of Life (Isaiah 58:11)

And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Isaiah 58:11 (KJV)

There is a continual wellspring of life available as we keep our eyes on Jesus, realizing that He alone is our strength, our source, our comforter, and our provider. When we daily fellowship with God and let His Word fill our hearts, we will find ourselves equipped to not only handle all that we are called to do, but we also become a spring of life through which the light of Christ can flow into our world.

Be Fed By His Word (1 Peter 2:2-3)

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

1 Peter 2:2-3 (KJV)

The Word of God is the spiritual food for our born again spirit. Just as we require physical food in order to be physically strengthened, so too our recreated spirit requires spiritual food in order to become strong within us. And so let us be fed and nourished by His Word daily, tasting of the joy and the fullness of life that is in Him.

Praise Announces Victory (Psalm 98:4)

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Psalm 98:4 (KJV)

Praise announces that the victory has already been won. When we praise God and rejoice in Him, mountains melt away and we open ourselves to seeing God’s glory manifesting in our lives. Let us have a heart of continual praise and rejoice in Him on the mountaintop and in the valley, for He is truly worthy of all praise!

Christ Is Our Sufficiency (1 Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV)

Jesus has become our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. Being in Christ means that He has become our sufficiency unto whatever need may arise. As we meditate daily on this truth, accepting it in our hearts by faith, we will see the fruits of it showing up in our lives.

Secure In The Covenant Of His Peace (Isaiah 54:10)

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Isaiah 54:10 (KJV)

No mistake or shortcoming on our part can remove us from God’s covenant of peace. Knowing this frees us from the condemnation that came with the law, and it reminds us that the foundation for our right standing is never our own performance but the finished works of Jesus Christ. This enables us to grow in our walk with the Lord, and to always become more fully who He has created us to be.

Christ Is Our Sufficiency (1 Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV)

Jesus has become our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. And so let us remember to not look to ourselves, but to Him. Being in Christ means that He has become our sufficiency unto whatever need may arise. As we meditate daily on this truth, accepting it in our hearts by faith, we will see the fruits of it showing up in our lives.

Continual Praise (Psalm 98:4)

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Psalm 98:4 (KJV)

Praise announces that the victory has already been won. When we praise God and rejoice in Him, mountains melt away and we open ourselves to seeing God’s glory manifesting in our lives. Let us have a heart of continual praise and rejoice in Him on the mountaintop and in the valley, for He is truly worthy of all praise!
