Secrets of Christian Victory- Your Vicory is God's New Year Gift

God’s will for our lives is constant victory. This is clearly taught in a number of Scriptures.
Consider just a few:
“Thanks be to God Who always leads us in His triumph in Christ” (2 Cor.2:14).
“In all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him Who loves us” (Rom.8:37).
“I am writing these things to you that you may not sin” (1 Jn.2:1).
In spite of these and other Scriptures, it is still a difficult task to convince many believers that God wants them to live victorious lives.
If we take Scripture just as it is written and believe it simply, as a little child, then this message will come through to us clearly. But if we rely on our reason, we may find many convincing arguments why such a life is not possible in this evil world. Many unbelieving “believers” will then add their testimony to what our reason tells us. And then we will convince ourselves that a victorious life is impossible in this world.
Unless we are convinced first of all that God wants us to live in continuous victory, we will never be able to have faith for such a life. And without faith, it is impossible to enter the victorious life. Everything in the Christian life is utterly dependent on faith. And faith is based on the revelation that God has given us in His Word.
Even if you have lived in defeat for many years, it makes no difference. If only you can see this truth of a life of constant victory clearly in God’s Word, it would be the first step towards a victorious life.
