The human race has been fighting battles from the beginning even Eden. Think about man and the serpent, Israel’s many battles in entering Canaan, world wars, civil wars, 9/11 war against terror and more. Some battles are spiritual while others are physical. People fight battles daily, whether in a court room, challenges on your job, training of your kids, crisis in a marriage and so much more.
God spoke to Abram about a coming war; the amazing thing about this case is that though the beginning was not defined, the end date was clearly stated. Hallelujah! Victory is sure and guaranteed in the many battles we face. Friend, please realize that there is only one possibility at the end of this fight, it is Victory! There are no two sides to this coin, it’s either you win or you win. This is the reason we are assured that in all these things, we are more than conquerors. What this means is that, there will be many things that could happen to you. Battles you are facing that seem endless, strive to get a better life and more. The Lord was speaking to Abram in Genesis 15 about a vision that was bigger than him. When God gives you a grandeur vision, He makes provision in fulfilling it. He told Abram he would inherit a massive spread of land which was currently inhabited; however, the master plan of God came into motion via his descendants firstly being strangers in a foreign land to captivity there before their deliverance and then possession of the Promised Land. God set a time bound vision for Abram. He proclaimed their victory many years before the battle. As children of God, we need to understand our Total Victory is settled. You therefore cannot be overwhelmed by the challenges of this world.
Isaiah 43:2-3a: When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour. (KJV)
He has promised that even when we go through different battles, we have victory. The victory plan of God covers every facet of your life. So whether you are dealing with an addiction, going through a financial difficulty or struggling in your marriage or job; you have a word from God, you will overcome all. This is why it is crucial we have a deep look at victory from the angle of it being a finished work. Please realize God is not a joy stealer making you go through pain to pay you penance for past sins, rather He has guaranteed us victory from all the troubles in this world. Think about it, the only thing that will bring God joy is you walking in your liberty in Christ Jesus.
Friends, the scriptures say whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world. The key ingredient to guarantee you enter into Christ’s finished works is being re-born. Believing Jesus is the Christ, your saviour. It is time to be on the victor’s side if you are yet to commit your life to Christ. Salvation has been given to all, simply receive it. The world system won’t be able to harass you because you are far above. You are operating in a system that is not of this world. You are operating in a realm of revelation, you cannot be touched. You have your victory guaranteed even before the battle. Welcome to the lane of Victors.
