He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2Chro 20:15 (NIV)
To live a life of TRIUMPH is to allow God to be the fighter. For He is the Man of war. Our fight is never a physical conflict. GOD is the fighter. The minute we begin to see people as the enemy we will proceed to give Satan a ride in our lives. The situation you are going through might have been caused by an act of man…….But the situation is beyond the physical realm. Whatever the case may be, the battle belongs to God and don’t ever thought of engaging in the fight or revenge on your own. Believers fight is the fight of faith. The only fight recommended! (1Tim 6:12) The fight of faith is by letting go of the fight into God’s hand while you hold your peace. (Exo 14:14). If this is your attitude, there is no way you will lose.
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Cor 15;57 (NIV)
It is believers’ faith that gives them victory. The victory that was accomplished by Christ, made available to us through FAITH. Faith has been likened to a legal tender currency for heavenly transactions. The only language heaven understand is a voice of faith. It is what pleases God. God is present where there is a display and demonstration of faith. God Himself operates in faith and He commands His children to live their lives in faith. You cannot say you are a child of God and not dwell in faith. Every child of God must walk, live and fight in faith. We obtained the finished work of Jesus on the cross by believing them. Such as victory, dominion, salvation, abundance, etc.
For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our FAITH. 1John 5:4 (NLT emphasis is mine)
NO ROOM FOR DOUBT
DOUBT triumph in the absence of FAITH. What Satan enjoys doing is to suggest to believers that VICTORY in CHRIST is for a selected few. In other words, it’s unattainable by all. He suggests doubt to deprive people of their inheritance. When Satan succeeds in keeping anyone in doubt, he has succeeded in keeping such people under his control. By always reminds them of their SETBACKS, FAILURES and CHALLENGES. Swinging their minds back and forth. Eventually, what you get is an unstable mind, which receives nothing from God.
6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. 7 Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do. (James 1:6-8 NLT)
