Darryl Rodman wrote in his book Heart Treasure, It is good news that God not only gives us the victory through Jesus Christ, but enables us to maintain and enlarge the victory as well, until the victory is the stronghold in our lives that can’t be robbed or destroyed
Several thoughts came to mind as I was reading and pondering these ideas. The first one is that we should not be doing our battles alone. No matter what style the fight comes in. Mentally, socially, physically or spiritually settling it in our heart that God is for us and not against us is crucial. Deuteronomy 20:4. For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory..
I Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ \
I John 5:4 For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
Many times we seem to fight the same types of battles, and it can get old or discouraging to face the same enemy over and over again. However, in my own life I have come to recognize what Darryl said is true. The more we stand in the victory of Jesus the more easily the victory is won and our land increases. What this means in actuality, is that we can and do win battles. Fears that may have held us captive nor longer control us. Insecurities which affected our life no longer cause us to cringe or hold us back from moving forward in life. We become more confident and effective in touching people’s lives. Energy that we used to have to put forth to simply endure a situation, can now be used for further His Kingdom.
God is working in and through us to help us be the over-comers He intended. Do not fall victim to the lie that because you lost one battle, you will never succeed. This is simply not true. Put on the armor of God, stand tall in His victory and move forward. Equip yourself with His Words of truth. It is not only your freedom that is at stake, but those around you.
