SUPERNATURAL MANIFESTATIONS – SUPERNATURAL VICTORIES
What an awesome year this has been! We have heard testimony after wonderful testimony of how our awesome God has delivered so many people. I remember at the beginning of this year when I announced by the Spirit of the Lord that this would be a year of great victories; I realised that victories come with a battle. And the Lord prepared us. Remember Jesus told us in John 16:33,
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
He warned us that we were going to experience challenges, but to not allow that to steal our joy. We were to remember that He has already overcome the world. I believe John recalled these words when he wrote in 1 John 5:4-5
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
If you are born again, John included you as an overcomer! Maybe someone said, “I don’t feel like an overcomer”. That’s the awesome thing. It does not depend on our feelings or even our ability. John went on to say in verse 5,
Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God? That qualifies you! Now all we need to do is step into that victory. How? By faith (1 John 5:4).
I don’t have to feel it or even see it. Remember Hebrews 11:1,
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
All we need to know is that God has said it. Again, Romans 10:17,
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Jesus said it. His witnesses confirmed it by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. God has declared you an overcomer. Your and my responsibility is simply to believe it and to say it with our mouths. Paul taught us in 2 Corinthians 4:13,
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak.
That’s the attitude of faith. Regardless of my circumstances or the lies that the enemy is throwing at us…we declare that we have the victory in the Name of Jesus.
Paul also wrote in Romans 10:8,
But what does it (the righteousness of faith-vs 6) say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach)
We boldly declare The Word of Faith. God said it…I believe it…I say it. That’s the process. That is our victory. Then stand firm and not be swayed. We continue doing the work of the Lord according to 1 Corinthians 15:57-58
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Let your seed this month be a declaration of victory, a celebration of our Lord’s mighty grace, a demonstration that you are standing strong and abounding in the work of our Lord. I am excited to hear your testimony of victory.
Janine and I love you dearly and pray for you every day.
You are blessed!
Jesus is Lord,
