WE WIN ALL THE TIME
_*Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us (Romans 8:37).*_
In Christ, you’re ordained to prosper, succeed, and triumph all the time. We’re supremely and transcendentally blessed in Christ. We win all the time, irrespective of the circumstances and situations we’re in.
Some people believe that an ever-winning, ever-triumphant life in Christ is unrealistic; so they live with the notion that “Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.” That’s not for the child of God. God’s blessing for every one of us, irrespective of the challenges, is that you’re more than a conqueror. It reminds of that old song in which the writer said, “God never said there’ll be no rain; He never said there’ll be no sunshine, but He always promised us a heart full of singing.” In other words, no matter what happens, you’re forever victorious.
Read the Spirit’s submission through Paul about this; it’s so inspiring. He says, _*“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us”*_ (Romans 8:35-37).
We’re not in the dark. We’re not at the mercy of Satan or the hardship in today’s world. In the midst of the darkness, turmoil, the adversities of life, your victory is a settled fact. 1 John 4:4 says, _*“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.”*_ This is a present-hour reality.
You’re not hamstrung; you’re not in the battle all by yourself. The Lord Himself said, _*“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee”*_ (Isaiah 43:2). Blessed be God! Be confident and assured of victory and a glorious life every day, because Christ is in you (Colossians 1:27). That’s your assurance of winning every day. Hallelujah!
*Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the life I have in Christ—a life of victory, progress, and success every day. I prosper and excel in all things as I meditate on the Word, and act on it. I win always, because Christ has been made unto me wisdom, and that wisdom which is my unparalleled advantage, is at work in me mightily, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.*

*||* *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. *||*
*||* *1 John 5:4* For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith. *||*
