Priscilla Shirer is truly one of my favourite preachers. Over the years, I’ve watched almost all the youtube uploads of her teaching the word. Not because of her per say, but because of how she breaks down scripture to my understanding with so much clarity and wisdom. She is immensely annointed and has blessed me in my Christian journey. In one of her preaches, she recited a summary of the entire bible from beginning to end – Genesis to Revelations. And she ended by saying something that changed how I see my life – ” In the end, we win!”.
The whole point of the bible is to reveal God’s triumph over satan. To reveal our own destiny as followers of Christ. It’s to make it crystal clear that God sat on the throne before creation, is on the throne now and will still be seated on that throne when the end arrives. And as a Christian, that made me feel so joyful and peaceful, knowing that my destiny is already sealed. So I now see everything as temporary .
You see, although we’re still going through the motions of life, victory is already ours. And trust me, Satan knows this so well. He also knows his destiny is sealed in Hell. Which is why he is trying so hard to blind eyes and turn hearts away from God. Pull more souls to perish with him eternally – tempations, distractions, false men of God, addictions, afflictions. I mean the list of ways the devil uses to constantly gain souls is insane.
But to keep our destiny sealed in Christ, we need to live life from a stance of victory and boldly embrace the authority we have on earth. How can you worry about your present when you already know your end? How can you despair about your future when it is already sealed?
Take up the authority you have through the holy spirit and tell the devil to take a back seat, because you know and he knows how this is all going to end. Deny defeat, deny despair, deny hopelessness. Accept victory, accept hope, accept confidence.
Because Jesus wears the victors crown, we too are victorious already. I am certainly, most definitely, NOT a loser.
Because on the cross, the battle was and is won.
I will love to pray for you. For anything. Drop me an email and pray for me too 😊.
