Our Simple Answer

The answer to our spiritual victory is really quite simple.

It is one of faith.

We will believe God. We will believe Him no matter what the enemy throws our way. We will “live by faith” (Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11).

It is one of a renewed mind.

We will pull down and cast down the strongholds of non-divine thinking patterns. We will cast off these well established dictators. We will live in the renewed mind. We will operate in the “mind of Christ” (I Corinthians 2:16; Philippians 2:5).

It is one of standing.

We will stand in the heavenly position and ground that God has given us. We will not give up our divine birthright – that which rightly belongs to us. We will “stand fast in the Lord” (Philippians 4:1; I Thessalonians 3:8).

It is one of wearing.

We will put on our Lord Jesus Christ. We will wear Him as our light. We will bear Him as our armor. He will be our unfailing protection (Romans 13:12-14).

It is one of joy.

We will always rejoice in the Lord. We will not allow the circumstances of life to distract us from our wonderful Father, nor His source of immeasurable and exceeding joy. He Himself will be our joy, and His joy will be our divine light in darkness – “in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom we shine as lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15).

We will be mindful that this battle is the Lord’s (I Samuel 17:47). By faith (I John 5:4) we will put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14); we will stand fast (Philippians 1:27) and be strong in Him (Ephesians 6:10), who is our joy (Nehemiah 8:10).
