“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33b
Beloved, you are on the winning side. No matter what the enemy does, your victory over him is sure in Christ Jesus. Jesus has already told us ahead of time that we may face challenges and troubles on this fallen plane, the natural human realm. This is the realm where the enemy and his cohorts constantly struggle the right of dominion over the earth with the sons of God. They have refused to accept defeat and constantly deceive those who don’t know into believing they actually have power.
After the fall of Adam, man lost his position of kingship. He became a slave in a realm of life that God handed over to him to dominate and rule over. However, when Jesus paid the price on the cross, He fulfilled all the requirements of justice and returned man to that position of dominion, potentially. It is now a responsibility of ‘he that believes’ to walk into dominion. The enemy does not want this, so his chief goal is to make sure you never enter into your Kingship and Sonship rights in Christ Jesus. Hence, the constant barrage and onslaught of the enemy upon your health, upon your finances, upon your family and upon your life in general. But in all of these things, you must understand that you are more than a conqueror and as Jesus assured us in our memory verse, He has overcome the world. You need a new spiritual lens or eyes to enable you see things the way God your Father sees things. When you see defeat, God sees victory; when you see despair, God sees hope; when you see failure, God sees success.
Until you begin to see the cross and the finished work of Christ for you, you won’t come to terms with the victory that is yours in Christ Jesus. Jesus said “it is finished” and indeed it is finished and as Jesus is victorious, so are you. Only believe!
Acts 10:36, 2 Corinthians 2:14
When I was in my final year in school, from my GP calculation, my result was third class. I came to church with my friend one day to pray with the money I wanted to use and sort the result. Daddy saw us and told us to sow the money we had with us and go and pray at the altar, that our problem will be solved. After praying, we left. I want to thank God that finally God miraculously changed my result to Second Class. Praise God!
