1 Corinthians 15:57
The death of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary and His resurrection marked the end of your defeat. Through this, you are supernaturally transformed from defeat to victory, from captivity to liberty.
It is impossible to find a Christian who is totally removed from pains and sorrows. However when you remember the faithfulness of God, you know that there is hope and this will help you not to pay attention to any ugly situation which you are passing through. Confession of faith replaces contemplating of troubles as you realize God’s mercy, compassion and faithfulness that do not fail. The victory that you have in Jesus, turns your filthiness to holiness that means every deadly habit inflicted by the enemy to destroy your destiny, is destroyed by the power of Christ’s resurrection. It is clear and certain that because God loves us, He chastens us but He does not consume us; He disciplines us but does not destroy us (Hebrews 12:5-11). You display an act of unbelief when you look at God through your circumstances and this creates hopelessness; but faith enables you to look at your circumstances through the reality of God, and it gives you hope. Jesus’ mockers spat on His face, placed a crown of thorns on His head and made Him a laughing stock for passersby, but He was raised in glory. Therefore, the power of Jesus’ resurrection is ordained to restore your glory. Your circumstances change, and so do your feelings about them. You invite constant unrest and disappointment when you build life on the things that always change, but when you build on changeless and eternal God you will have peace and confidence. The secret of victory in time of trials is submission to the lord and accept His verdict.
When you are in pain and perplexity, know that the lord will never cast you off and will not forget you. No matter what you are passing through in life, you must always remind yourself that you have victory in Jesus.
