Isaiah 59:19 “…because the oppressor shall come like a river, and The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah will humiliate him.” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English)
Proverbs 24:10 “Don’t give up and be helpless in times of trouble.” (Contemporary English Version)
Our Lord gave us, in the Scriptures, a view of what it would be like in the current time we are living in. The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 3:1 “But understand this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble (hard to deal with and hard to bear)” (Amplified Bible). Jesus has called us as HIs people to be overcomers, regardless of what we are facing. We are not called to throw up our hands and give up and be consumed by the troubles of our time. There is a God given way to a victorious life. I would like to share with you 3 Biblical insights of the victorious life.
1. We are not here accidently! We are made for our time- God made us for the day that we are living in. You and I are called to live in our generation. God is a generational God. Look at Deuteronomy 7:9 “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with who love Him and keeps His commandments.” We were born at the right time and in the right generation. The Bible tells us in Galatians 4:4, concerning the Lord Jesus Christ, that He was born in the fullness of time. He came to the earth in the generation that He was ordained to be in. It is true with you and I as well.
2. There is a present day grace and faith for our time- God has His grace available for our day. God has an overcoming faith available for our day. It’s simple to tap into God’s grace and faith. It’s found in Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
3. God knows how to scatter and make void the work of our enemy- Notice the verse in Isaiah 59:19 which was the first Scripture used in our Weekly Word. The Spirit of the Lord has the power to change things for good. He desires to help us, in our time, to be the overcomers that our Lord has called us to be!
