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 (2 Corinthians 2:14).
For some people, life is full of "ups and downs." The reason they think this way is because of their ignorance of the Word. When you have the clear understanding of who you are as a new creation in Christ, you'd realize that you were born a champion. You can live each and every day of your life in victory over every situation. Yours is a life of continual victory. The death of Jesus on the cross, and His triumphant resurrection made us one with Him, and brought us into the transcendent life. It's a daily life of blessings, miracles, signs and wonders.
The Bible says about Jesus, that God "... raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come" (Ephesians 1:20-21). Then in Ephesians 2:5-6, referring to us-the new creation, the Bible says He has "...And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:5-6). The story doesn't end with Jesus alone; God has also raised you up together with Christ and made you sit together with Him in the realms of glory.
You're seated in the right place of divine authority and power; and so victory for you is a day-to-day experience. The Bible says "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 john 4:4). So go forth today and win, for you've been called into the life of unending victory and success.
Dear Father, I declare that through faith in your living Word I'm making progress in my life and excelling in every endeavour. I thank you for making me a champion in life and choosing me to live a life of victory, progress and success everyday, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
