“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God” 1John 5:4-5.
What does it mean to walk in the light of your victory? It means to live with the consciousness that you’re a victor in
Christ Jesus. It means to have the wining mentality; the mindset of a victor. Understand that when God looks at you, He doesn’t see one who’s in need of deliverance or help. He sees you strong, full of the Holy Spirit and power; He sees one who is more than a conqueror, He sees one who has conquered the world, He sees you as a victor and as a champ! You have to agree with His picture of you and say, “Yes, Lord! I am that man you’ve called me to be. Nothing can put me down, for I walk in the light of my victory over the world, over the devil and over the circumstances of life!”
Our opening verse reveals to us that we have overcome the world because we are born of God- because we believe in Jesus as the Son of God (John 1:12). This is our reality! This verse is not a future tense, it doesn’t in any way connote that we will soon overcome the world or we will overcome the world at some point in time, it reveals to us that we are already-made overcomer. This is our present state; victory! And we must learn to walk and function in this reality. Are you a believer in Christ Jesus, then you are a victor. And if you’re not, believe in Him and be saved.
“Now thanks be to unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place” 2Corinthians 2:14. This tells us that it is God Himself whom has equipped us with victory and triumph, it goes ahead to tell us that over victory is perpetual, constant and always. This is the very reason we must always walk in the conciousness of our victory. I learnt through a teaching of Pastor E.A. Adeboye (G.O. of RCCG) that there are three types of Champions viz; ex-champion, reigning champion and potential champion. But blessed be God, we are reigning champion in Christ. We are not ex-champion neither are we potential champion, we are reigning champions; standing victors. Hallelujah!
Get bold about this, say to every situation and circumstance and let the devil know that as long the Lord is on the throne, you are also on the throne with Him. Ephesians 2:6 says we are seated together with Christ Jesus in the right hand of majesty in the heavenly place far above all principalities and power.(Eph. 1:20, Heb. 1:3). You know what this means, it means you’ve be made to trample upon all powers and circumstances, since you are high up there, every other thing is under you feet. Little wonder Luke 10:19 says “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”. You are above, you are the head, you are an overcomer! As far as God is concerned, nothing in this world could defeat you, for “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
Lastly, confess to yourself in prayer saying; ‘Dear Father, thank you for bringing me forth into a life of continuous victory! I refuse to be subject to the crippling principles of the world. Victory is my birthright in Christ Jesus; therefore I walk in victory and exercise dominion over the devil, sickness, poverty and challenging circumstances today, in Jesus’ Name. You are a victor. Walk in the light of your victory.
