2Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”
1 John 5:4 “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith.”
Is it possible to live victoriously all the time? Yes, it is. Our opening Scripture today tells us that God causes us to triumph always in Christ. Observe the word “always” in that Scripture. Always means all the way, all the time, every way, every time, and every step of the way. This means there is no room or place for defeat; there is no time for defeat.
This is the life of the man in Christ; it is a life of continual victory. The victory that Jesus Christ won for us in His substitutionary work for us is perfect, complete and rounded. He broke the power of satan, and of sin, and of lack, and of sicknesses, and of fear, and of everything of darkness, and gave us perfect victory. In view of this, we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus who loved us and gave Himself for us.
No power of hell and of satan can harm us. We have left the zone where darkness holds sway. Colossians 1:13 tells us that God has delivered us from the power or authority of darkness, and has translated or catapulted us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! We are no longer under the dominion of satan. Jesus is the Lord of our lives now.

This is the reality of the man in Christ. It is important that you begin to see yourself in the light of the Word; what the Word says you are. You don’t have to cave in and come under the inﬂuence of satan in any way. You are no longer obligated to serve the devil or obey him. Jesus Christ has set you free from sin and all of its consequences. Hallelujah!
The Lord Jesus Christ is King of kings, and Lord of lords, and we reign with Him because Revelation 5:10 tells us that He has made us kings and priests unto God, and we shall reign on the earth. He is King always, and He reigns always; therefore, we reign with Him always. He is Lord all the time, and we reign with Him all the time.
Notice in that Scripture that it’s in Christ that we have victory always. Little wonder 1 John 5:4 says “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” Our faith in Christ Jesus has made us victorious in Him, and no matter what comes our way, we are triumphant. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we have the victory always.
Put the Word in your mouth; put the Name of Jesus in your mouth. Refuse to cave in or cower. Stand your ground in faith, for the victory is always yours in Christ. Hallelujah!
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus, I declare that I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus my Lord. I declare that I always have victory regardless of the challenges that come against me because I am born of God, and greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. Hallelujah!
