How to walk in victory
‘But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ’. 1 Corinthians 15:57
More than anything else in life, a Christian needs to walk in victory. But sometimes victory seems to akin to a mirage in the desert, especially when you are going through tough times. However, God is not asking you to create your own victory nor struggle alone in the wilderness.
I reckon God is asking us to stay close to him. He wants to pour words of love into each of our hearts and sing songs of love over each of our lives.
But how do we do we hear him when everything else in the world screams for our attention?
I believe we need to ask the Holy Spirit to give us ears to hear his voice and eyes to see his presence in our lives. We also need to be intentional about worshiping Jesus and spending time with him in prayer. And it’s about recognising that we need Jesus to stand up for us when we can’t stand up for ourselves.
When we walk with Jesus in our everyday lives, then we walk in victory everyday.
