“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.”
II Corinthians 2:14 NKJV
What an amazing promise. We are always lead in triumph. Even in trials, we triumph. We triumph because our victory is in Him and when we abide in Him and fix our eyes on Him we will get through any trial and overcome every temptation.
What if you don’t overcome? If you sin, you have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. If we sin, He is faithful and just to forgive our sin.
Yes, there will be times when we sin. When we do, we humble ourselves and repent. We submit ourselves to God, the Holy Spirit continues His work of sanctification and next time we overcome. You have to walk in a mindset of triumph. Not in your ability but in what Jesus accomplished on your behalf. Go through trials knowing they produce endurance and patience. Face temptation with the Word and defeat the enemy.
1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
1 John 5:3-5
