But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day (Proverbs 4:18)
In Christ, we have the transcendent life; we win always! We have an ever-joyous life, with power over crises and dominion over circumstances. This is our normal life in Christ. Does this mean as Christians, we don’t face challenges? That’s not what it means! Rather, it means irrespective of the magnitude or fierceness of the challenges we face, there’s only one outcome: we win!
You’ll have to face trials, tests and difficulties, but the Word says, “…In all these things, we are more than conquerors…” (Romans 8:37). 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ….” Our victory in Christ isn’t sometimes, but ALWAYS, irrespective of kind and place.
The challenges and crises of life are for your promotion. Never be intimidated; you’ve already overcome them in Christ (1 John 4:4). In Christ, you have a life of peace, strength, health and prosperity; a life of glory and power. Colossians 1:27 says, “…Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Christ is your guarantee of a victorious and glorious life. Learn to trust in Him, and follow His Word, putting it to work in your life.
I have and enjoy the transcendent life; victories unlimited! I’m making progress with giant strides, from glory to glory. When men are cast down, I’m lifted, because greater is He that’s in me, than he that’s in the world. Hallelujah!
Romans 8:35-37 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
2 Corinthians 2:14 MSG In the Messiah, in Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade. Through us, he brings knowledge of Christ.
