Our victory is in Jesus. He lived as an example for us, overcame temptation, and died on the cross, taking the sin for us. He was buried, and He rose again, defeating Satan. We do not have to walk in defeat because Jesus fought the battle for us. When He died on the cross, He said, “It is finished. Webster’s meaning of finish: (1) to come to an end, terminate. (2) to defeat or ruin utterly and finally. (3) to bring about the death of (4) the quality or state of being perfected.
That is enough to serve God for the rest of our lives. Then, all we must do is trust and receive everything Jesus has already finished for us.
Revelation 22:13 says 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
God knows the beginning and the ending of everything we go through. Our faith in what God has done for us leads us to victory through Him.
2 Corinthians 2:14 Amplified Version: 14 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.
1 John 5:4 New Living Translation: For every child of God defeats this evil world, we achieve this victory through our faith.
It is done! The victory is won!
Prayer: God, we thank you for winning the battle by sending your Son Jesus to die for us. We thank God that those who have not received Jesus into their lives will receive Him by repenting their sins and asking Jesus to come into their life. Lord, we receive everything you bore on the cross for us. By trusting in your word, we have victory and always triumph through Jesus Christ. We no longer walk in bondage or despair because you know our beginning and end. We ask you to lead and guide us through your Holy Spirit and the word of God. We give you the praise, glory, and honor in Jesus’ name! Amen.
