Those who put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are not defeated, they are victorious. We have been given victory. Jesus secured our victory at the cross and in His resurrection.
Through Jesus we have victory over besetting sins. We have victory over the flesh. We have victory over temptation. We have victory over the enemy. We don't have to "give in". We don't have to be defeated by the trials, problems and circumstances of this life. Jesus overcame and in Him we overcome.
Often we live our lives defeated, downcast and depressed because we don't realize that we have already obtained victory. We aren't trying to gain victory, the victory is already ours. We tend to let the circumstances and things that we go through tell us that we have lost or that we can't do it or won't make it. Well, whose report will you believe? Will you believe the enemy, the circumstances, the flesh, man's report? Or will you believe what God has said? He said you are more than a conqueror. He said you have power over all the powers of the enemy. He said you are victorious.
Stop walking around with a defeated mentality and loser attitude. Child of God, rise up and be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. You are not defeated... you are victorious... thanks be to God.
Have a great day. If your faith and trust is in Jesus, you are not defeated but you are victorious.
