Live victoriously

27 September 2018
‘We achieve this victory through our faith.’

The Bible says: ‘Every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.’ To live victoriously we need to do these three things: 1) Restrict the devil from moving in our lives. Jesus said: ‘I tell you the truth, the things you don’t allow on earth will be the things God does not allow. And the things you allow on earth will be the things that God allows’ (Matthew 18:18 NCV). The devil doesn’t want us to know that we have God-given power to restrict his movements in our lives, but we do. We just need to use it. We’re in a spiritual battle, we don’t need to simply allow the enemy to attack us, we can armour ourselves (have a read of Ephesians 6) and we can bring God, and the power of His Word, into every situation. 2) Dare to believe and reach for what God has promised us. God promises us peace, inseparable love, strength in our weakness, shelter and protection, and so much more. We need to trust that He will bring those promises to fruition in our lives, because he is faithful and never goes back on His promises. 3) Wake up the dreamer within us. The Bible says: ‘Your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days’ (Joel 2:28-29 NIV). Our season of life, our struggles, and our past are not a problem for God. He can rekindle our faith and refocus our vision. And we can fulfil our God-given dreams with God at our side, equipping us to move forward. So let’s choose to live victoriously.

 

What Now?

Memorise James 4:7. Every time you feel the attack of the enemy, say the verse out loud.
