This one truth rings true no matter what we face in this life: Christ won.
Jesus won the victory over the enemy. He crushed his head, and Satan’s doom is coming. As the last days are upon us, may God keep us forever aware that time is short. May we continue to be a light in a dark world, that seeks to point others to Christ’s love and forgiveness. There is hope because of Jesus. The enemy would want us to think all hope is gone. But we know better. Jesus is victorious and because of Him, we live free.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57
Christ overcame all evil. The power of the Resurrection proves - He won. And that same power fights for us even now. The enemy may try every scheme possible to distract, tempt, or lure us away with fear, lies, and manipulation, but as believers, he does not hold our future in his hands. Only God does that. And we are forever secure in His power.
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39
In whatever you face, know that He is with you, know that He is for you, and He fights for you.
May God’s grace and strength fill you today, as you live aware of His constant covering and protection.
Stay close to Him, live aware, and stand strong.
