2013-07-24: You’ve Been Positioned For Victories

You’ve Been Positioned For Victories

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:3-4).

 God has positioned you for victories. However, in order to live the transcendent and glory-life He has called you to and positioned you for, your outlook on life must be from the perspective of His Word. You must live in the light of His Word and cease to observe situations like an ordinary man.

God has already done all that’s necessary for you to experience victories here in the earth. But sadly, many Christians still make the mistake of waiting for Him to do something about their situation. Some even say they’re waiting for Him to take them to the Promised Land – that good and prosperous place, flowing with milk and honey. What such folks haven’t realized is that in the mind of God they’re already in the Promised Land! They got there the moment they were born again. In other words, they are already positioned in the best place they could ever be, having already come on to Mount Zion (Hebrews 12:22). They’ve been positioned in the place of victories.

Observe again these inspiring words from our opening scripture: According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. This is not a promise, but a statement of fact; a present-hour reality. You received the life and nature of God the moment you were born again and immediately, you were positioned for the glorious life of victory. Everything you require to live that victorious life to the full has already been granted you.

So when God looks at you He doesn’t see a weakling who’s struggling to make it through life. Rather, He sees one who is more than a conqueror; who’s been endued with the dynamic ability to effect changes in the circumstances of life. Sickness, poverty, defeat and failure are unnatural to the child of God. Ordinary men may be susceptible to all these influences, but you have been positioned for the glory-life; a life of victory through the Word.

Finally, when you get up every day, thank the Lord for positioning you for this life of victories, and also for granting you everything you require to excel and live victoriously in the earth to the glory of His Name. As you live according to the revelation of His Word today, you’re lifted above this world and the decadence therein, into the realm of glory and victory that He planned for you from the foundation of the world. This is how to consistently experience the victories of Christ in your life. Glory to God!
