The Believer’s Advantage
And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ.
Philemon 1:6 NLT
The life of those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ’s redemptive work, is a victorious one. It is a blessed life. However, in the midst of contrary circumstances, to live or experience this victory requires knowledge and acknowledgement of the good things God has made available to us in Christ. Without that, the believer will live below their privileges and be convinced that is how it is meant to be. The truth is, because you belong to God, you do have the upper hand in every challenge. Acknowledge it and confess it in faith:
God is for me, who can be against me. Romans 8:31
God is with me, I fear no evil
Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4
Those on our side are more than those who are against us. 2 Kings 6:16
And there is much more to know.
Child of God, refuse to live in fear or live like a victim. Rely on the Holy Spirit to lead you in truth into all that the father through Jesus Christ has made and given you.
Put your trust in Jesus Christ and you have the advantage!
