NOTHING CAN PUT YOU DOWN .

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith (1 John 5:4).
There’s a higher life in Christ—a spiritual life, which we’ve received as Christians. We’re not ordinary. We‘re not in this world as victims; we were born victors. 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, _*“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.”*_ This is your life; you’re victorious every day, everywhere, and in all things.
Of course, there’re those who believe life isn’t a “bed of roses”; it’s full of “ups and downs,” but the reason they think this way is their ignorance. You’re supposed to live in victory over every situation that you face, because Christ is in you. Jesus’ vicarious sacrifice on your behalf made you one with God, and brought you into this life of victory.
The Bible says, God _*“…raised him*_ (Jesus) _*from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come”*_ (Ephesians 1:20-21). That’s not all; God has also _*“…raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”*_ (Ephesians 2:5-6).
God raised you up together with Christ; you’re seated with Him in glory, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. You’re seated right in the place of His authority and power, and this is the reason you can’t be defeated. It’s the reason nothing can put you down, for greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).
It doesn’t matter what your experience in life has been; it doesn’t matter how long you may have suffered or been in darkness; light has come to you. Truth has been unveiled: Christ is your life, your strength and your victory. You’re more than a conqueror. You were born to have dominion, and live triumphantly every day. Hallelujah!
I was born a victor, and I live triumphantly over Satan, the circumstances of life, the economic conditions of this world, and other problems that ruin people’s lives. I live a superior life, far above the world’s corrupting influences, by the power of the greater One who lives in me. I’m a victor in Christ Jesus, now and always. Blessed be God!
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.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
1 Corinthians 15:57* But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
