Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14 NKJV).
The key word in the scripture above is always. Knowing that we always triumph in Christ gets rid of the false philosophy, “win a few—lose a few.”
Just because it is God’s will that we always triumph doesn’t ensure we will never be attacked or have adversity.
I’ve heard people say, “Well, I haven’t always triumphed.” That’s not God’s fault. His Word says He always causes us to triumph—and God is always right. In God’s mind, victory belongs to you. No matter what kind of persecution, adversity, or attack you may be under, God’s planned result is triumph.
Of course, you can choose to give up before victory comes; you can get weary of doing well before victory comes; you can even get discouraged and quit before victory comes. But I am totally convinced that God already has your victory planned out for you.
I’ve learned that what I do during an attack will determine whether or not I triumph. I made up my mind years ago that I’m not going to accept failure. I’m not saying I’ve never had an opportunity to fail or I’ve never had a setback. I’ve had plenty of these situations, but it’s never over until God has the opportunity to turn things around and lead me into triumph.
I don’t know what you may be going through today, but I do know this: If you won’t give up God will always lead you in triumph.
Confession: I believe God will turn every adversity into victory. I believe God has a victory plan for every negative circumstance I face. I always expect victory because God has promised I can always triumph in Christ.
