The Bible is filled with stories of God giving His people victory in battle. As humans, we will face temptation and battles, but God has overcome the world and we are promised victory through faith!
13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Jesus Christ has given us victory through faith. Sometimes it happens that we get scared, anxious and worried. This is normal,what is not right is that we start questioning the power of our savior in our lives. Jesus Christ who saved us years back, is still the same warrior . We keep on wondering if we would win the fight, but guess what, we have already won the fight before even starting it.
We need to recognize our worth in Christ and be proud of who we are, that is children of God. We need to be proclaimers of the great love that Jesus Christ has shown us and is still showing us.
Let us not grow weary ,but rather be confident in our Lord. Whenever we face battles and temptations, let us draw close to God for strength, courage and needed weapons. We would be very much surprised of how much we can conquer and overcome with the help of God, our shelter and portion.
1 John 5:4
4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
We need to remember that we are soldiers of a great army led by Jesus Christ. We might be facing a lot of challenges;including illnesses, poverty, temptations, and so on. All of this can be indeed painful and challenging,but we should never forget what kept us breathing and standing up till today. We need to trust in our Lord and allow ourselves the privilege of being the warriors of Jesus Christ.
In my life i have met challenges that shattered my heart, made me so sad and broken. Even though i felt that i was so sad, i opened up to Jesus Christ and gave up on negativity. I started seeing life in a different perspective, in the mirror of God. I felt so relieved and happy as i started getting close to my savior, as days passed, i started feeling indomitable!
Let us follow our shepherd and allow him to be the commander of our existence. We will in return be conquerors and warriors through Christ.
Prayer starter: Dear heavenly father, remind me that i am warrior and that i am victorious through faith. Remind me that with you by my side, i am invincible and that i can overcome chaos and challenges of this world. Give me courage, wisedom and discipline. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
