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 (2 Corinthians 2:14).
When you confessed the Lordship of Jesus over your life, you were immediately catapulted into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son; into a life of triumph. Sadly, many don’t understand this glorious truth and as a result, live below their calling. They’re up today, and down tomorrow; and to them, “Such is life: you win some, and you lose some.” But that’s not consistent with the life we have in Christ; we don’t win sometimes, and lose sometimes; we win all the time! It’s a life of continuous triumph.
Observe our opening verse again; it says, “… thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ…”; not sometimes, but always. What a life! Christianity is not a religion; it’s the life of God lived out through you; it’s divinity at work in humanity. You can’t have this mentality about Christianity, and be beaten down in life. Until you come to know the Christian life beyond the facade of religion, all you’d have is the religiosity of Christian principles; and that’s not good enough.
You need the understanding of your victorious life in Christ; you need to have the revelation of the triumphant, exultant life of the supernatural that you’ve been called to live. Such an understanding will put springs in your steps. To know that you have the very nature of God in your human spirit and His pulsating life in every fibre of your being will change your perception in life.
As one who’s born again, become conscious of who you are and what you have in Christ. You’re different from the rest of the world; you have the God-life, which makes you one with Him. With that life working in you, sickness, disease and infirmity of the body shouldn’t have power over you, likewise sin. Sin is the cause of sickness, and Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you….” If sin, which is the parent of sickness, has no power over you anymore, by virtue of the pulsating, triumphant life in Christ, then sickness, which is the offspring of sin, shouldn’t have any power over you. Halleluiah!
I’m a victor in Christ Jesus. I’m more than a conqueror. I function by the wisdom of God, and in the dominion of the Spirit over every situation! I live the triumphant life in Christ today, as I recognize and put to work my authority in Christ! Glory to God!
