Good morning! I went to bed last night singing an old hymn that I haven’t sung in a long time and I woke up still thinking about Victory in Jesus! Wow! There is so much truth just in the chorus and it goes like this. 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.
1 John 5:4 says this, “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world.” The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world’s ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God!
I don’t know what you are facing today. This world maybe wearing you down and you are feeling frustrated and tired. I want to encourage you this morning to begin to sing this old hymn over and over again! Think about the words and and realize what this song is all about. If you are in Christ, you are a child of the King! You have been forgiven because of His amazing grace. We have been set free from sin and death and one day we will spend eternity with Him in heaven! We have VICTORY in Jesus and we are over-comers!
Take your eyes off the world and keep them focused on Jesus. Victory in Jesus!
