Most of my blog-posts lately have been taken from my book COURAGE: Fighting the Battles of Your Life. And as much as I would like to share every thought in details on the blog, I’m compelled to understand that the blog is not a book where you want to read long writings. In effect, I try to take some excerpts from the book and share with you, and to encourage you. With that being said, let’s go straight to the thoughts.

“Precious one, let me start by telling you that victory is not measured by how many times you have been attacked, where, how, why and by whom or what. Moreover, even though humanity (men) can put a time frame on victory and define victory according to the world, Divinity (God) has his own victory time table and particular definition for victory.”

“Oh, no! Never will he win again! What he forgot and always forgets is that his attacks on the children of God actually pave the way and help them to their victory. One more time he made the mistake of helping Jesus to die. It’s was part of God’s plan in order to completely win the battle. Jesus was supposed to be crucified and die to pay the price with His blood (Luke 22: 20; Romans 5: 9; Ephesians 1: 7; Colossians 1: 20). He was supposed to go and meet death and conquer him as well.”

“Shame on the devil, his demons and servants! … The devil lost the battle! It seemed in the beginning, even from the time of Adam and Eve that he has won and continued to win. But look at him—he lost over two thousand (2,000) years ago. Jesus the second Adam won the battle. The Bible states, “And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross” (Colossians 2: 15, NIV). Apostle Paul exclaimed, “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Corinthians 15: 57).

Understand that just because it seemed like you have lost in the past or even in the present in some situations or battles in your life does not make the devil a winner. All the vicissitudes of life are temporary. Today you can launch an attack or go on the offensive against the enemy or those things and overcome them in Jesus’ Name. Yes, it may looked like you have lost the battle of your visions and dreams and failed in fulfilling them before. But now is the time to prepare and sound a battle cry for spiritual, moral and financial war against the devil and his demons, curses, familial spirits, diseases, bad habits, attitudes and characters. You can still win the battles of your life. It’s not too late! If your grandfather, father, grandmother or mother lost the battle against something in the family line, now is the time for you to rise up and fight that battle and win it for the present and coming generations. You may still be the same person that also lost in the past, but now under the blood covenant of the Lord Jesus Christ and the abundant grace of God, you are more than conqueror. Different versions of Romans 8:37 Read, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us”. “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”

“You see? When God has a plan–He HAS IT. He knows where and how it’s starting, where and how it will continue, and where and how it will end in order to produce His expected end. Remember, He said, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29: 11). Even though the plans of God for our lives at times don’t feel comfortable, meaningful and acceptable, He does it His way; which after all, is the best way. And we never know until He finishes what He’s doing.
