RHAPSODY OF REALITIES TUESDAY, 15TH NOVEMBER.
LIVING IN HIS VICTORY BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us (Romans 8:37).
Notice the underlined statement in the opening text. It says, “…we are more than conquerors….” This suggests that the victory over the
adversary is an old conclusion, and not only that, we’re already basking in the victory; it’s already a vital part of our existence.
The reality is this: we’ve gone past the stage of celebrating our victory in Christ. We celebrated when we found out about His vicarious sacrifice on our behalf; now we’re living out that victory. “More than conquerors” means you’ve passed conquering; you’re now living in the victory; it has become your daily experience.
Take for example, an athlete who competes in the Olympics, and wins the Gold Medal. At that instant, he joyously celebrates his victory with other well- wishers. When he receives the prize-money and starts spending or living off it, it’s no longer an expression of celebration; he’s now living in it. It’s become a vital experience. So, he’s gone past “conquering” or winning the Olympic gold; he’s relishing the spoil or result of his victory, as it were. That’s our experience as being more than conquerors.
We’ve passed the level of celebrating the victory we have in Christ over sickness, poverty, defeat, and discouragements. We enjoy and live in divine health, prosperity, victory, and dominion. We’re no longer trying to find out whether we have some issues with the devil; no! We’re superior to him. Exercise your dominion over Satan, fear, sickness, discouragement and lack. Live in the victory of Christ.
The day you were born again, you were born into total and continuous victory. Therefore, live each day of your life in victory over every situation. That’s the life of the believer. Victory is your birthright. Have the consciousness that you can’t be defeated or disadvantaged. Walk in the light of your victory over the world, the devil, and the circumstances of life! Have the mindset of a victor.
I thank you, dear Lord, for making me more than a conqueror; a victor in Christ Jesus and an overcomer in this life. The greater One lives in me; therefore I’ve overcome the adversary and the systems of this world. I live triumphantly every day, enjoying the blessed and transcendent life in Christ. Hallelujah.
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
