“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57
We all love a good reveal – whether it’s a personal makeover, a renovated home or a business that has been overhauled. It often gives us a glimpse of something we didn’t think was possible. It shows us the power of dreaming and believing in what cannot yet be seen.
Revelation is all about the reveal. It is a unique book in which Jesus Christ is revealing Himself as the ultimate king, the ultimate judge. That reality is something that, as Christ-followers, should give us confidence as we face today’s world. So many times things look bleak. The current trends in our world can be disheartening. But what we must remember is that, in spite of all we see going on, God has secured victory in the end. As you think about the world and your place in it, take heart that God has given you a picture of the things to come. He has revealed His Son, Jesus Christ, and pointed to the fact that in the end, victory is His. Are you living in that victory? Are you making the most of the reveal that God has given to you? Are you believing in what has been promised, but is yet unseen?
Remember: we aren’t fighting FOR victory; we are fighting FROM victory. Use that statement today as a source of strength as you face whatever is before you!
God, Thank You for already securing our victory. Give me the confidence and strength I need to walk in that victory today! Amen.
