Aim For Victory And Settle For Nothing Less
“The victor: I will give him the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I also won the victory and sat down with My Father on His throne.” Revelation 3:21
Victor: a person who has overcome or defeated an adversary; a conqueror. A winner in any struggle or contest
Throne: the chair or seat occupied by a sovereign, or other exalted one
Victory: a success or triumph over an enemy in battle or war
Greetings fellow sojourners! Do you perceive that every single trial you face you were intended to triumphantly march through it, standing and declaring the victory Jesus has procured for you? This does not mean marching, standing and declaring your will but that you would be in line with God’s zenith plans for your life. Faithfully laying down your will and humbly picking up His. These earthly trials will most definitely persist but we must know they are not laid before our feet as a means to bring about our downfall or to make our lives miserable. You are divinely equipped to conquer all manor of testing and we faithfully accept them because we know if we are faithful they will bring about our further sanctification.
What trials specifically? Those trials that ultimately require you to crucify the flesh. Trials that demand your absolute allegiance to faith. Trials that demand your full participation in prayer and not just a passive approach that says in frustration, “I give up.” As time advances forward, our trials will require much more keen discernment and steadfastness as situations (like the need for peace and comfort) more cleverly try to deceive our faith. Persevere in all these things and Jesus says you and I will be the victors! He will give us the right to sit with Him on His throne just like the time He won the victory here on earth and the Father allowed Him to sit down with Him on His throne. Can you fathom it? Who could? However, the Word declares it therefore it is true. The Cross of Christ is what empowers, equips, provides, sustains, enriches, strengthens, infuses, enlightens, frees, and emboldens the believer to stop coddling and nurturing the flesh nature. Paul said a person remains carnal if he knows the things of God yet is still significantly characterized by the workings of the flesh (1 Corinthians 3:1-3). How does your heart process that?
The Victor will sit on the throne with Jesus.
At no time forget, Jesus is for you! Face your trial and NEVER give in to defeat. Keep your head up and eyes focused on Jesus, knowing what awaits you in eternity. You are victoriously empowered from on high for the precise trial you are currently facing. Be bold and courageous DIVAs.
In His grace,
