Good question. Lot’s of sincere faith motivated Christians ask it. At least wonder about it.
The truth is that the Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us this golden and powerful truth. When you come to a battle as you’re in partnership with Christ, you don’t come for victory, you come from victory. That truth embraced sets an entirely different tone to our attitude, actions, and prayers.
However, the devil’s henchmen will still attempt to challenge you. They’ll use all manner of lying and deception to “prove” to you that you don’t have victory. The lies will say, “Just look at your circumstances and feelings!”
So, what do you do? Like any good poker player…CALL HIS BLUFF.
“Liar, liar, pants on fire you imp from hell!”
There are demonic assignments of opposition set up against us. The devil and the flesh will continue to attempt resistance to the Word of God and the advance of the Good News. That means that you’ll experience resistance…at different times, in different ways, on different levels. (I didn’t say you’ll experience true defeat. I said, “resistance.”)
We are tasked, as Believers, with ENFORCEMENT of His Word. We are not just conquerors. According to Truth, we are MORE than conquerors through Christ Jesus. He’s the power source. Just attach your faith to it and move forward with your feet, hands, mouth, attitude…whatever.
You can do it because He already did it. And His victory is our victory.
“In the world you WILL have tribulation, but BE OF GOOD CHEER because I have overcome the world.”
Jesus – John 16:33
