WE HAVE THE VICTORY!
Team Mylon we are praying for you every day! We understand the daily news reports of the war between Russia and Ukraine, along with reports of rising inflation and gas prices can be alarming. So this is a good time to remember that in Christ, WE HAVE THE VICTORY!! All of our years of learning what it means to “live by faith” are for this season that Second Timothy 3:1 referred to as “perilous times.”
Please understand: The word VICTORY in itself denotes battle. Victory is defined as “Conquest; the defeat of an enemy in battle; a gaining of the superiority in war or combat.” (Webster’s 1828 Dictionary) In the Strong’s Concordance victory means “to conquer.” Another definition is “a win.” Think about it: Why would we need victory if there wasn’t something to overcome? Many sincere Christians incorrectly believe their faith in God means they can “lie on flowery beds of ease” as Kenneth E. Hagin said. Instead of “fighting the good fight of faith” when trials come, they bemoan their situation and wonder “Why me Lord?”
Jesus confirmed there would be challenges in this life in John 16:33 NKJV, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” We can be of good cheer because Jesus destroyed the works of the devil (I John 3:8) and made a way for us to live victoriously in this life, without fear. Our part is to absolutely refuse fear concerning the warfare we see all around. NO FEAR HERE!
We have already conquered in Christ Jesus but we must enforce that victory. How? We cast down imaginations that try to exalt themselves above The Truth by using our words. (II Corinthians 10:5) Second Corinthians 4:13 explains, “We believe and therefore we speak.” Let’s look at God’s promises concerning victory:
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Corinthians 15:57 NKJV
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our FAITH.” I John 5:4 NKJV
“Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.” Romans 8:37 AMPC
Now more than ever we need to know who we are in Christ and what belongs to us in Him.
Declare with us, “In Christ:
- I am Victorious.
- I am an Overcomer.
- I am a Conqueror.
- I am a Winner!"
As you give your precious seed this month, you can rejoice knowing you already have financial victory. As a tither, you have a covenant with God. He said in Malachi 3:11, “I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field.” When God rebukes the enemy, it’s a done deal. The devil can’t steal your harvest! That means, gas prices and inflation can’t steal your increase. We declare, “All is well in the household of faith!”
We Love You and stand with you for victory everyday,
Mylon and Christi
