EVERYDAY VICTORY BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
(Your Life Is An Endless Parade Of Victories)
Luke 1: 68-71 “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, for having visited and redeemed his people, and raised up for us a mighty Savior in the house of David his servant, as he had announced by the mouth of his people. holy prophets of old, a Savior who delivers us from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.”
One wonderful thing about the salvation we have in Christ is that we have absolute victory over the enemy and can serve God without fear. We have been delivered from the powers of darkness and transferred into the glorious kingdom of the Son of God, which leads us in the paths of righteousness and in the triumphant paths of life. So in Christ your life is a perpetual victory.
No matter who stands against you, no matter what anyone says about you or against you, you have absolute victory in Christ. The last part of our opening verse says, “… that we may be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.” This is the decree of God concerning you, and it came into effect with the coming of the Lord. This means that whoever declares himself your enemy, whoever hates you or projects evil against you, can never overcome you, for Christ is your victory.
Therefore, never worry about your opponents. You don’t even have to pray against them, because the Bible says, “When the wicked come up against me to devour my flesh, it is my persecutors and my enemies who stumble and fall” (Psalm 27: 2).
Note that the above scripture does not say to pray to prevent the wicked or your enemies from coming against you; they are free to come against you. But their end has been determined: they will stagger and fall. Learn to take the Lord simply at his word! He says in Luke 10:19: “…nothing can harm you. There is absolutely no justification for a Christian to live or respond to any circumstance with fear. Refuse to be afraid of anything or anyone.
Heavenly Father, I thank you because your Word has given me understanding and knowledge of my victory in Jesus Christ over Satan and the powers of darkness. I am so happy that I can live to serve you without being afraid of the devil and the wickedness of this world! I go out today knowing that no evil will come upon me, and that I am delivered from wicked and unreasonable men, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Read Psalm 91 aloud, making sure to personalize it as you read.
