The Victory Is Mine

When I believe every Word that is in the Bible my life is going to know a power that is literally limitless and my life will never ever end. We all have this promise from God. Just take it. I believe. I stand on the Word of God. I tell everybody I meet “Hey, I have got the victory. Jesus gave it to me. The victory is mine. I stand on the Word of God. I am dead to that sin”.

victory When I am offered a cigarette “I am sorry I can’t smoke. I am dead”. I stand on the Word. I believe the Word. I affirm the Word. I rejoice in the Word. If I do this I am promised I will not fall. I will not even struggle. It will be gone from my life.

If you say to yourself. “Well I am going to try. I will give it my best shot. God will give me the strength. God help me.” you are going to fail. There is a difference in these two approaches. Accept the victory. Accept.

This may require that you go over it five or six times to grasp this spiritual concept. God has given you the victory. Yes. It’s over. Yes. I don’t have to fight anymore. No, God gave you the victory. I am dead? Yes. You are dead. You can’t do it anymore.

Cool. I am dead. When you get it and quit trying to stop yourself, you accept the victory God has given you. It is incredible. You believe the Word and stand on it. It is done. This is the tool to change any limiting habit or behaviour in our life. It is powerful. Really powerful. I live with this concept every day and it is changing me forever.

Just Take It

God gives me the victory. I take it. I believe and consider myself dead to that sin. I make absolutely no provision for my habit. Then the power of God literally does a miracle in my life. The story is told of Peter the disciple in the Bible. Peter was out on a boat at night with the other disciples. He looked across the water and he saw Jesus. Jesus was out there walking on water. Peter was just amazed and intrigued. He looked at Jesus and said, “Lord, I want to walk on the water too”.

walking on water Can anybody walk on water? Yes or no. No, nobody can walk on water. It is humanly impossible. The Lord looked at Peter. He spoke two words. He said, “Peter come”. That is all He said, “Peter come”. Peter heard those two words. He knew that God could not lie. So he stepped out of the boat. He stepped on the water. What did Peter do? He walked on the water. He walked on the water all the way to Jesus Christ. Peter did what was humanly impossible.

Peter did it. How did Peter walk on water? He walked by faith in Jesus. He had faith in God’s Word. It was only two words. “Peter come”. When Peter believed, he walked on water. When he believed the Word of God, God did the miracle. That is the power of God. We need to realise it.

When people have problems they go home and pray about it, “Lord give me strength”. This never works because we are denying what God has already done for us. We need only to acknowledge and thank God. I believe that when I have a problem, God has already given me the victory. I just have to take it. God says, “Believe you are dead to it. Get rid of anything that feeds the habit. The victory is instant. It is here. It is now.

Peter was able to walk on water not because he could, but because he simply believed the Word of God. Two words. “Peter come”. When Peter believed it, God did the miracle. When I believe every Word that is in the Bible my life is going to know a power that is literally limitless and my life will never ever end. We all have this promise from God. Just take it.

Get Rid Of It

bigtobacco When the temptation comes to smoke. Go back to the promise. “God give me the victory. I am dead I can’t smoke anyway. I am dead. Praise God. Thank you for giving me the victory.” When a temptation comes to me, or any habit that tempts me to sin, smoking, drinking, losing my temper, whatever it is, whenever it comes I turn to God and say, “God you gave me the victory, I stand on your Word and I believe it. Lord I am dead. I can’t do it.” My friends want me to smoke, “Sorry I am dead. I can’t smoke because I am dead.” I make it fun, I make it real. Can’t do it if you are dead.

STEP 1

1Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God, which GIVETH us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

STEP 2

Romans 6:11

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be DEAD indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

STEP 3

Romans 13:14

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and MAKE NOT PROVISION FOR THE FLESH, to fulfil the lust thereof.

In this third step, I have a part to play. I am to make no contribution to my habit. I get rid of anything that feeds or contributes to the habit. Again let’s say it is cigarettes. I have accepted the victory that God has given me over smoking. I believe with all my heart that I am dead to smoking. I must make no provision.

My flesh wants tobacco. My flesh want nicotine. My flesh wants stimulants. God says I must make no provision. So I have to get rid of all cigarettes in my life. No cigarettes in my house, in my pockets, in the car. I had in the early day to avoid any friends who encouraged me to smoke. I avoided the situations that urged me to smoke, a party, whatever it was.

When you get rid of everything, here is what happens. God at that point can do a miracle in your life. We have just done three things.

1. God gave you the victory. You took it. It is done. No more struggling. It is finished.

2. God says, “Reckon that you are dead to it.” You believe you are dead. Whenever temptation comes, “I am dead.”

3. You make no provision for the flesh. Get rid of it. Get rid of the alcohol. Get rid of pornography. Get rid of the cigarettes. Get rid of whatever is contributing to your bad habit.

When you take those three steps the most amazing thing happens. The power of God literally does a miracle in your life.

I Am Dead

dead to sin God stands in our life and says, “I am giving you the victory. I am giving you the victory over your temper.” Now if God gives me something, what do I have to do to get it? I take it. I take the victory. It is so simple, it is hard. As adults we want to know if there is something that we have to do to get the victory from God. Nothing. Just take it. “Don’t I have to try to keep the Sabbath?” No, it is done for you. Just take the victory.

It is contrary to our nature to just take it. We have a hard time accepting it. We need to understand this concept, that victory is a gift from God, then there is no stress, there is no pressure to try to quit the bad habit. I do not have to battle with my bad habits anymore, I do not have to fight anymore.

I can just sit back and relax and say, “Thank you God. I accept your gift of victory. I believe your Word. I believe you have given me victory, therefore it is out of my life. Thank you Lord God.” This is powerful. I believe that God can give me victory on any limiting habit I am willing to quit. This is the first step.

STEP 1

1Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God, which GIVETH us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

This is the key thing. No longer will we pray, “Dear Jesus, give me the strength, dear Jesus help me not to do this today.” No we need to forget this kind of prayer because Jesus has given us the victory and we need to thank Him. Jesus wants us to have the victory therefore He gives it to us. He has already given it to us. We just need to take it. It is simple . I no longer complicate it.

STEP 2

Romans 6:11

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be DEAD indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

God says that once I have given you the victory, then whenever that sin or habit comes into your life again reckon that you are dead. If you are dead, can you smoke? No. If you are dead can you lose your temper? No. If you are dead can you yell? No. If you are dead can you snuff cocaine? No. If you are dead you cannot do it anymore. It is impossible. God says that we are to think of ourselves as dead.

Let’s say you have a problem smoking. You are on the job. The craving comes to smoke. “Boy I would like to have a smoke.” What are you going to do? You can say I am going to try to quit. God give me strength. You will fail.

When the temptation comes to smoke, go back to the promise “God give me the victory. I am dead I can’t smoke anyway. I am dead. Praise God. Thank you for giving me the victory.”
