There are those who seem to be showered with favor, while the rest of us have to fight for everything we have.
We fail over and over again,
We fall down, get back up, and fall again.
Once one enemy is defeated in one area, there is another one to push us back down.
Unfortunately, God does not guarantee us simple lives. Throughout the bible we find people struggling and failing. The key is to not get caught up with our failure and realize that, in christ, we are much stronger than we think. We are overcomers. God has given us the tools sufficient enough to win every victory. We only fail when we dont realize it.
The only truth that has power is the truth we know and choose to walk in daily. Truth alone does not set us free. (John 8:32)
We are told that we will triumph by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony, and that testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (Revelation 1:9 and 19:10)
When we overcome, we not only gain victory for ourselves, but also earn the right to speak our victory as living prophecy into others. In addition, our entire family line will receive blessings from our victories for a thousand generations just like we are blessed because of our family members before us. (exodus 20:6)
So let us be encouraged to know that Jesus has all the tools to defeat the enemy. Let us make a stand for victory, not just for ourselves, but for our family line and everyone around us. Let us not focus on our past, but turn our attention on what God can do through us for others as we choose him.
