Victory in Jesus:
Satan is a defeated foe!
Praise the Lord, we have the victory in Christ Jesus! God is giving us victory on every level of our lives. Every time the enemy tries to come against us! God raises a standard against him! Time and time again, God has brought us through all of the hurt, pain, confusion, despair, lack, relationship and martial problems, sickness — it doesn’t matter what the problem has been. The same God has given and will continue to give us the victory.
I have had personal experiences where the enemy tried to defeat me mentally, physically, financially, and in all kinds of ways. But glory to God, I am testifying to the fact that god gave me the victory each and every time the enemy reared his ugly head! Even when my enemies tried to come against me, even when others wanted to see me the defeated. The Lord God raised a standard against the enemy and lifted my head above them all!
Let us rejoice and be overjoyed at the things God is doing and has done in the lives of all of his people. Satan still doesn’t get it; he refuses to believe and accept the fact that he is a defeated foe. He just continues to try and make us give up, give in, and to lose our faith and trust in God. But the bigger the battle he brings, the bigger the victory and the blessing God will give us.
When you personally see God’s hand work in your life and give you the victory, it bolsters and grows your faith and then you begin to experience that greater faith in God!
I am not going to give up nor give in — I am going to continue to hold up the blood stained battle in God, because I have seen God give me too many victories to let defeat have the last word!

“But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high” Psalm 3:3.
