17-Overcoming Victory

James 1:17 (NKJV) –Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.


Victory is a gift paid by the blood for us at Calvary.

God is the source of everything good in our life. Every good gift comes from our Heavenly Father. He gives perfect gifts. When we acknowledge His role in all we have, we tend to develop the best defense against pride and fear, and that’s humble dependence on Him.

Why, may you ask, that we can count on the Lord to continue to provide for us? The answer is that there is no variation in Him. He is loving and faithful to supply what we need. He will never change. He is always dependable. He is the same yesterday, today, and always. Surrendering to God is beautiful and brings forth victory. Rededicate your heart and life to loving, following, and obeying King Jesus.

1 John 5:4 (NKJV) For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

According to Strong’s Concordance, the Greek word we translate into English as “overcomer” is Nikao. It means “one who prevails, conquers, and gets the victory over.”

1 Corinthians 15:57 (NKJV) But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

1 Corinthians 15:58 (NKJV) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

Fight from a place of victory. When you think of victory, what does it look like to you? Look in the mirror, and you will see victory! YOU are what victory looks like because you have the Holy Spirit living within you and King Jesus’ blood covering you.

The Lord says you already have the victory! Stand still and see the salvation of Heaven’s hosts. Just wait and see. Your enemy will fall into their trap, and you will see them no more. May we shout for joy over your victory in the name of our God and set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!

Declaration: I am a victor, not a victim. Jesus has already won the victory. I will stand steadfast and will put on the whole armor of God.
