Step Into Your Victory
By Mandy W Green
God has created us to win in spite of the challenges we are facing. Faith is the force that causes us to live in victory as we walk by faith. “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” I John 5:4.
Our first step into victory is to walk by faith. Christians are called to live by faith, to believe in what we cannot see. II Corinthians 5:7 instructs us to “Walk by faith and not by sight.” The word walk means "regular movements of the feet which makes progress." A life lived by faith produces progress as we accomplish the plans and will of God.
Second, the next step to victory is love, our faith will only work by love according to Galatians 5:6. Love must be the ruling factor of all we do and say because love never fails. It always places us in a winning position. Jesus said “If you love me, keep (obey) my commandments John 14:15.
Finally, thankfulness is a step to victory. Thankfulness is the vocabulary of faith. I Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Faith believes it receives, thanks and praise God for the answer before it manifests in the natural.
Victory is always available for the believer when we walk by faith, live by love and thank God for the answer. II Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
