TOPIC: TOO DEFENDED TO BE DEFEATED
Scripture: What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Romans 8:31-34 (KJV)
Let me ask you if you do understand the passage we read above as our text in this message?
If you do then I am very sure you have come to the knowledge that no weapon, enchantment or divination set against you as a child of God who is in Christ Jesus walking in knowledge that can prosper. – Rom 8:1, 11, & 14.
The four verse are very loaded with power of the word of truth tat can set anyone free from all troubles of life. Verse 31 says if God be for us! Who can be against us? Meaning the who are afraid of who can hurt them do no have God on their side or they have but did not know they have. Or may be they choose not to believe they have him. Wow!
If God be or us? If God be for us who can be against us? No one! Hallelujah. Verse 32 says there is nothing He can not give to us! Wow! I love that Verse 33-34 – that who can lay any charge against us or Condemn us? No one. He has justified and set us free. Hallelujah. Meaning God through Christ has empowered us and immune us so that no evil should happen to us.
We can never be condemned any more Hallelujah. No Evil has power over us! Glory to Jesus, the author an finisher of our victory – Matt 16:19. God through Jesus Christ made us Holy, Righteous and empowered. Wow! No one can judge or condemn us as a Child of God. Christianity is a life of champions. No matter what happens in your life always remember to declare who you are in Christ Jesus – Phil 1:6.
Failure, defeat, sickness, poverty, attacks etc are not possible unless you let it happen. You are the only one that can make you be affected by any of the evils of life. There’s not enough power on earth, and there’s no FORCE in the world that can make you a victim of any evil on earth. YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN MAKE YOU BE VICTIM. But as long as you choose to win, as long as you choose victory, that will you have. Mark 11:22-24, John 14:12-14.
Stop asking God for favor, because in Christianity we have been favored already. Stop asking for power because we have been empowered already – Matt 16:19, Mk 16:17-18. It doesn’t not matter what you are going through now either it is pleasant or not, can I tell you the TRUTH? Divine favor is working in you. You are a child of God and His Grace is at work upon you just because you have been saved. This is why we can rejoice in the midst of problems – Php 3:3
You are called to inherit a blessing.1 Pet 3:9, Num 23:23. Brothers and sisters please note that you are branded for God. There’s a mark on you. God watches over you and He enjoys relationship with you as His son or daughter – 2 Cor 6:17-18, Gal 4:6, Rom 8:15.
Let this truth be in you daily that you as a child of God is too defended to be defeated This knowledge will shift your daily prayer focus from enemies and gets you focused on Christ – Heb 12:2 and doing good works – 1 Peter 3:13. If your attention is always on enemies and who wants to hurt you. You have not been grounded in the knowledge of the truth that sets free. I pray that from today you will be grounded in the full knowledge of the truth for total freedom and blessings in Christ in Jesus name. Amen
