Victorious by birth
From the day we say yes to Jesus as our Savior, we also change our position from one of defeat to one of victory. Sadly, many times we do not comprehend this life altering shift of position, and so do not live fully into what is ours by birthright.
As Christ followers we are now seated with Him in the heavenly realms which means we sit in a place of victory and have been given victory over our enemies (Psalm 44:7). On that day when the earth shook and the enemy dealt what he thought was his final blow, God was setting the stage for His resurrection power to bring about the greatest victory ever demonstrated as Jesus rose from the dead and defeated death.
His victory is our victory, and we are destined and created to live victorious lives as we claim His resurrection power over every area of our lives. If there are any situations in your own life that do not feel victorious, start to boldly declare that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you because He made a way for your victory!
No matter what battles we might be face, we now fight from a place of victory, never defeat, because we are always seated next to the Kings of Kings. We have been promised victory in our homes (Psalm 118:15), victory over sickness and disease (Matthew 8:17), victory of fear (2 Timothy 1:7), to name a few! The enemy has no right to steal our victory (Psalm 129:2), and the best news is that Jesus IS our VICTORY all the time!
Victory is our birthright!
“Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!”Psalm 118:15 NIV
