Have you thought about your everlasting life, the one that is Eternity? There is not one thing that you own that you will take with you when you go, including your body. Have you embraced what has been offered to you? Let’s dig in and find out.
Reprinted from the Blog of Harold Herring:
Have you watched a television series where the star of the show is seemingly always in eminent peril?
No matter how real the scene feel. . .you can know for sure. . .that the creator and writers of the television show will never kill the hero or the star. . .who plays the hero.
Just like the movies. . .you’re a star that will never be defeated by the enemy. In fact, not only will you not lose. . .you win every single time.
Here are three scriptures which should strengthen and energize your faith against every attack of the enemy.
First, 2 Corinthians 4:8 in the Amplified Bible says:
“We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair.”
The attack on you, your family, health or finances. . .may be intense. . .but you will never be defeated. So why be afraid?
Hebrews 13:6 in the Amplified Bible says:
“So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?”
Have you ever heard the song “Unbreakable” by Fireflight? Probably not, because it’s a Christian rock band. . .however, the song contains some amazing faith-filled lyrics.
“Where are the people that accused me? The ones who beat me down and bruised me They hide just out of sight, can’t face me in the light They’ll return but I’ll be stronger
“God I want to dream again, take me where I’ve never been I wanna go there, this time I’m not scared Now I am unbreakable, it’s unmistakable No one can touch me, nothing can stop me.”
Nobody can touch. . .nobody can stop you. . .nobody can defeat you. . .nobody can do anything to you. . .because He’s got our back.
Isaiah 54:17 says:
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”
You already know the outcome. . .it’s your inheritance.
Here are the seven reasons why God wants you to be victorious.
Your Father wants you to be victorious. No loving Father ever wants His children to lose
God wants us to win…..EVERY TIME
2 Corinthians 2:14 says:
“Now thanks be unto God, which ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH in Christ….”
The enemy only has the ability to deceive, accuse and tempt . . .that’s it. Jesus took away the power of death, hell and the grave when He made an open show of the devil.
The Bible plainly states that Jesus disarmed Satan and all his demon hoards.
Colossians 2:15 in the Amplified Bible says:
“(God) disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it (the cross).”
Remember the Word of God says we are always supposed to triumph, not just 51 percent of the time, not even 85 percent of the time, but always.
How much easier this sounds when we realize Satan has no weapon that will work against us.
Your Heavenly Father paid a heavy price to make you victorious. Would you be willing to send your son or daughter to die for someone you didn’t know?
Many parents have faced that question as they’ve seen their sons and daughters ship out to war zones where they stand in harm’s way in defense of our freedom not knowing if or when they will return.
God sent His only begotten S
