Keys to Staying Victorious
30th NOVEMBER 2020
“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us spreads and makes evident everywhere the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Him.” [2 Corinthians 2:14 AMP]
It was for freedom that Christ came to set us free. God’s desire is that we continually and daily walk in victory no matter the season of our lives. He wants to lead us, always, in triumph. That is the reason God gave us the Holy Spirit; so that we walk in victory. The enemy will not stop fighting us when it comes to enjoying the victory that is in Christ Jesus.
Victory has to be our lifestyle and not a once in a while event. God in His wisdom has provided us with what it takes to stay victorious.
We need to walk in fellowship with other believers if we will enjoy the victory that is in Christ Jesus. There are battles that we cannot fight alone but rather with the help of the family God has given to us. The enemy attacks people who are alone, or who do not have any family support. Staying connected to a family and doing life together with them is key to walking in victory. Ecclesiastes 4:9–10 says that “… two are better than one.” You will be stronger when you have a family that is praying with you and encouraging you. Fellowshipping is intentional. It goes beyond a weekly meeting with believers. It is staying connected to the family that God has given to you on a daily basis.
Another key to walking in victory is a daily life of surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. 2 Corinthians 3:17 says that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Once we surrender to Jesus, we walk in victory. A daily surrender to Jesus is having the Bible as the ultimate authority in your life. The Word of God must have the final day in your life if you are surrendered to Jesus. The more we know the Word, the more we surrender to what the Lord tells us in the Word.
Finally, we need to be steadfast in prayer if we are going to walk in victory. We can stop many things from happening through prayer. We can resist the work of the devil in our lives and that of our families through prayer. Every man of faith is a man of prayer. A sign that you have faith is when you spend time praying daily. We must not only pray when we are in trouble, but prayer must be a part of our lives daily. The one who learns to stay in prayer will walk in constant victory.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the victory You have given us as Your children.
