Victory in Jesus

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:57

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

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:14

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

O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.

If we have victory over death, do we not have victory over pride? What about irritation or depression? We say such awful things against our God, our friend and saviour, when we say "This is just how I am." This sort of talk is merely us resigning ourselves to SIN. We don't want to change. We don't want to be kind when they are mean to us. We don't want to do our best work, just what will get by.

Today, when he irritates you, pray for him and do something KIND. Today, when they disobey, correct them quietly, firmly, and with a smile. Today, when everything seems overwhelming, remember your God and his Power and that He gives us victory. We don't have to sin, we don't have to languish. We have VICTORY!

SHOUT IT OUT and be thankful.
