You Can Have Victory!
“But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57
Old habits, old fears, old addictions sometimes creep back into our lives through compromise and sometimes we even turn back to them. But, guess what brothers! I’m here to tell you what Paul is saying to us in the Corinthians.
Jesus says, fix your eyes on me! If you let me be your victory, you’ve seen the last of defeat. Please listen to what God is saying! If Christ is our victory then we have seen the last of our enemy, as he was defeated once and all at Calvary.
Oh, he may try, just as he tried Jesus in the wilderness but if Jesus is on the wall of our hearts and our lives than he himself will carry you through. Sometimes we can live in fear of habitual patterns of sin, you know, those things you might return to. Sometimes they are so close that you are gripped in fear.
But I’m here to tell you once and for all that in Christ when we put our trust in him with all of our heart than we can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we have been truly set free. – Dan Gavin is a graduate of the Colony of Mercy and is now serving on the full-time staff at America’s Keswick
Quote of the day: It is impossible for that man to despair who remembers that his Helper is omnipotent; and can do whatsoever He please. Let us rest there awhile, – He can, if He please: and He is infinitely loving, willing enough; and He is infinitely wise, choosing better for us than we can do for ourselves. God invites and cherishes the hopes of men by all the variety of His providence. He that believes does not make haste, but waits patiently, till the times of refreshment come, and dares trust God for the morrow, and is no more solicitous for the next year than he is for that which is past. Jeremy Taylor
