Living from victory

When Jesus died on the cross, his sacrifice brought about a restoration of the identity that all of us were created to live out. Ephesians 1 and 2 tells us that Jesus was seated in heaven far above all rule, authority, and power; everything was placed under his feet. And then it goes on to tell us that we are seated with him so part of our identity is the reality of being seated with Jesus in that place of authority. So when we speak, we can speak from that position of authority and from the position of victory that Jesus paid for on the cross. We all need to live from victory and live from the place we have been granted through the sacrifice of Jesus.

We don’t have to be afraid of anything the enemy does and we don’t have to worry about what tomorrow will bring. Jesus told us not to worry about tomorrow (Matt 6:34) and it’s such an interesting comment because we all have a tendency to wonder about what is going to happen next. I’ve been guilty of being worried about the future but at some point I came to realize that God really does have everything under control. He is the master orchestrator of all creation and there is nothing outside of his control. If he has given you a promise, hold onto it, and declare it over yourself every day. Everything God speaks has to happen, everything! When he commanded light to exist there was no question about whether or not it would happen. Every molecule and atom in the universe obeys his voice and when he speaks they all line up to do what he commands. So we don’t need to worry and we don’t need to focus on the problems or situations that may currently surround us. Our God is bigger than all of that!

Live from victory, live from authority, and live with an expectation that everything you speak that is aligned with heaven will have the full backing of heaven.
