Living a victorious life

By Joshua Iginla

|

“When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, chariots and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, and …(Deut 20 vV 1- 4)

God has the keys to every fundamental issue of life; he has the strength, might, power, capacity and sagacity to take on any and every battle, despite the magnitude. It is not about the size of your problem but all about the magnitude of your God; don’t focus and magnify the battle but magnify our God; your problems are truly infinitesimal and quite surmountable before him. Daniel 11: 32 quips: “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall be corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”. A goat backed by a lion can take on a herd of elephants. We serve a mighty God; he is the Lion of the tribe of Judah; I open your faculties to the true knowledge of whom you are, and of the God we serve, in Jesus name.
Fear not, and be not dismayed by anything or anyone, except God; he will show up in the midst of the battle. Remove your eyes from your problems and focus on God…Looking up unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith! Don’t magnify the devil, but magnify your God; he as you magnify him, the devil will be sore afraid and flee. 1 declare: our God is the Alpha and the Omega; he is the beginning, the ending and all that is in between; he is a perfect God and not known for abandoned projects; he will surely complete and perfect that which he has started in your life today, in Jesus name.
As we are different in faces, so are our life battles! There are those you wish to be like but of a truth they are equally wishing to be like you; nobody has it all. We have unique battles but we have a mighty God that does not slumber or sleep over our matter; he will set an angel to guard us lest we dash our feet against a *« stone. He is our creator and maker; he cannot fearfully and wonderfully make us, only to carelessly abandon us. He knows even the number of hairs on our head, and everything about us. No prudent investor abandons a blue-chip investment; he is with us always and will never leave or forsake us,, even unto the end of time. I declare; you are a divine project and cannot be abandoned; no weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that rises up in judgement against you is here condemned; I return the darts and arrows of your enemies back to the sender, in Jesus name. *
HOWTO LIVE A VICTORIOUS LIFE 1. Divine Wisdom – David was victorious because he behaved wisely before Saul and was promoted above his peers and contemporaries: “And David went out withersoever Saul sent him, and behaved himself wisely: and Saul set him over the men of war, and he was accepted in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul’s servants”. (1 Samuel 18: 5). It went further in verses 14 and 15 to say: “And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the Lord was with him. Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him”. Now verse 30 caps it thus: “Then the princes of the Philistines went forth: and it came to pass, after they went forth, that David behaved himself more wisely than all the servants of Saul; so that his name was much set by”. Saul became afraid of David because of his wisdom; he behaved more wisely and his wisdom was assured.
Wisdom has the capacity to put you above your enemies; it is greater than strength and weapons of war: two principal things you need for victory: “Then said I, wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised,, and his words are not heard…Wisdom is greater that weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good”. (Ecclesiastes 9:16 ~18). Know that wisdom and craftiness are two diametric opposites: the divine wisdom of God is different from the crafty wisdom of men. 1 pray that God will imbue you with divine wisdom to conquer and overcome your enemies, in Jesus name.
The world has become more sophisticated and wicked; you need God’s wisdom to navigate and survive in this murky water of life. The Bible forewarns that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom; he gives wisdom to those that: fear him. The fear of God will teach you not to make negative statements and utterances against others. Lies cannot triumph over truth; you shall be vindicated; the vicissitudes and vagaries of life shall not wear you down; you are a Champion and cannot be defeated, in Jesus name.
The wisdom of God is slow and steady; it preaches love and not hate; forgiveness and not bitterness; peace and not war. The wisdom of God invokes the fruits of the spirit as encapsulated in Galatians 5: 22 – 23: “But the fruit of the spirit love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law”. We are further admonished in Proverbs 14: 16 “A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident”, I declare: your enemies shall be put to shame, in Jesus name.
