Victory! -a message from James MacDonald

From James MacDonald…


I am convinced that there is nothing more powerful in your life than the truth of God’s Word. The promises and precepts found on every page are more than just good ideas or helpful advice—they provide a divine roadmap by which to live. With that in mind, I want you to let these words of grace and truth bolster your faith today …


You have the victory in Christ Jesus.


Wow, that’s good news! You aren’t going to be defeated. The enemy isn’t going to take you out. As a child of God—clothed in the righteousness of His Son, Jesus—you are destined to win!


Now, in order to win the battle, there is something important you must first understand.


Victory doesn’t come without a battle.


The truth is this: We have an enemy, and there is a war being waged around us on every front. But you don’t have to be discouraged or afraid in the fight, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world (see 1 John 4:4).


Satan is a defeated foe. Jesus has already won the victory.


So, no matter how big or small the battle you’re facing today, decide that you are not going to give up. Stand firm (Ephesians 6:13) and watch God do something mighty in your life.


Remember, regardless of how strong or how weak you feel today, the battle is the Lord’s. You don’t have to fight in your own strength. Stand firm. Trust the Lord. And watch Him bring victory in every area of your life.
