He made a way when
there didn’t seem to be a way.
He won the victory when
there didn’t look like
there was a way to win.
Looking for a reason to celebrate and something to be happy about?
The Bible says that Jesus experienced death for us. So you and I do not have to experience eternal death because He has paid the penalty for our sin and given us the gift of eternal life.
With the power of the resurrection and victory over death that Jesus provided, what do you think happens every morning when you wake up?
Joyce believes that when Christians put their feet on the floor in the morning, hell ought to shake. Demons should tremble when they realize we’re up!
That’s exactly what will happen when we realize who we are in Christ and understand the authority we have in Him. We are soldiers in the army of God. We have authority in Him.
Jesus defeated sin and death.
Now we need to consistently walk in the authority and victory that He provides for us. Then you will be extremely dangerous to the enemy of God.
— Notes from today’s devotional —
The Victory We have in Jesus
9 What we do see is Jesus, who was given a position “a little lower than the angels”; and because he suffered death for us, he is now “crowned with glory and honor.” Yes, by God’s grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone.
Prayer Starter: (from today’s devotional)
God, thank You for the victory I have in You. Every day, help me to further understand the price You paid for me, so that I can walk in all the authority and victory that You have for me.
I thank You Lord for this new day and for all that will be in it. I lift it up to You as my dad goes in for his eye appointment in hopes of a good report. Be with him and my mom Lord and bring us all a great report I pray as You have begun the healing in His eye. Lord, You see the work for this day ahead of me and so I give it up to You trusting that You will grant me wisdom and discernment on what to do and when. I trust in the fact that You go before me to prepare in advance for me to do. I know that as I plan You direct my path and will help me to accomplish the things You desire for me to accomplish. Lord, I lift up my family and friends and each of their needs to You Lord, that You would strength and encourage them, that You would help and provide for their needs. And Lord in and through it all, may You receive all the praise, the honor, and the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
‘So do not fear, O Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, O Israel,’ declares the LORD. ‘I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid. I am with you and will save you,’ declares the LORD.
Jeremiah 30:10-11a (NIV)
The promises of God are enough to extinguish fear and grief, we will not surrender to difficulties or troubles that threaten us, but will turn to God for the security that only He can provide.
