I hope you had a great Resurrection Sunday!

Beyond all Jesus did on earth, following all He did, “undergirding” all He did, was victory! He walked in victory. How? By following the Father through every moment. Even the mundane ones, before His public ministry began.

The awesome grace of our God is that He not only has the victory, He shares it with us. Believers can tap into the triumph available through Christ. He came that we might have abundant life (see John 10:10). We don’t have to live as victims.

Take a look at this:

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. (2Co 2:14, NKJV)

“Always leads us in triumph…” If you’re lacking victory today, turn to Jesus and ask Him for breakthroughs. Pray through the situation you’re facing (pray until something happens). Trust that God will see you through.

Resurrection Sunday represents the ultimate victory—Jesus came to undo the works of the devil. (see 1 John 3:8) Jesus rose from the grave! He is victorious! He lives! And the same power that raised Him from the dead is at work in believers. (see Romans 8:11) Tap into it! Pray. Believe. Trust God to move. He has good plans! (see Jeremiah 29:11-13)

Let's strive for victory in every area of our lives--by living for God in obedience and trusting Him along the way.
