TEXT: II CORINTHIANS 2: 12 – 17, PROVERBS 3: 5 – 6

INTRODUCTION: The world we are living in is full of challenges. These challenges manifest in various areas of our life. Jesus speaking to his disciples declared emphatically in John 16: 33 saying, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” God’s desire for every one of His children is that they live a triumphant life. This life is possible in Christ Jesus despite the challenges we face.

In this study, we shall consider some basic things we need to do to live a triumphant life daily, which are as follows:

(1) TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART: Prov. 3: 5 – 6; Ps. 37: 3 & 5; Ps. 125: 1; Is. 26: 4.When we trust in the Lord, with all our heart, we will not be moved by what we see, but by what He says.

(2) KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST JESUS: Phil. 4: 13; Rm. 8: 14; Col. 1: 2 – 3The strength to go through that challenge you are facing in life has already been made available in Christ Jesus. All you need to do is to know who you are in Christ and follow the leading of the Spirit.

(3) BE CONSCIOUS OF THE PERSONALITY IN YOU: I Jn. 4: 4; I Jn. 5: 4; Rm. 8: 11We must be conscious of the fact that the blessed Holy Spirit comes to dwell in our regenerated human spirit after our new birth. Thereafter, he begins to help us in our day-to-day walk with God.

(4) DECLARE WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOUR SITUATION: Job 22: 28; Is. 33: 24; Heb. 13: 5 – 6.When you learn to declare what God says about your situation, this will make Him stand with you and bring it to manifestation.

CONCLUSION: Hebrews 10: 35 – 36. For us as Christians to live triumphantly on daily basis, we need to trust in the Lord with all our heart; know who we are in Christ Jesus, be conscious of the personality in us and declare what God says about our situation. We also have to be patient with God, so that after we have done the will of God, we will receive the promise.

MEMORY VERSE: II Corinthians 2: 14A“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ.”
