Experiencing Victory Amidst Daily Conflict
With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes. (Psalms 60:12 NLT)
Earth is the battleground of the conflict of the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of God. From the time Lucifer was cast out of heaven (to earth) for rebellion and pride, earth became “without form and void, and darkness covered the face of the earth (Genesis 1:2).”
God created Man to take authority and have dominion over the earth and satan’s cohort. However, in like fashion as Lucifer, we (Man) chose to pridefully rebel against God, resulting in the forfeiture of our authority on earth and over satan.
BUT GOD CAME! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came as the Son of Man, lived the life we were intended to live, died to make atonement for our sin, and was raised to conquer death, hell, and the grave.
Jesus reclaimed earth as HIS kingdom, and restored us (Man) to our original place of authority and dominion over satan!
Jesus established His kingdom, then appointed us, His followers, to CONTINUE to establish His Kingdom on earth. God has already won the victory and confirmed the outcome; we simply walk in obedience and faith to experience that victory here on earth as it is in heaven.
By the way, there is coming a day when earth’s conflict will be forever and eternally settled. Jesus is coming to bring justice.
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. (Romans 16:20 NLT)
With God, you will defeat the enemy. Have faith!
Victory is yours!
