Look what God did for us!

Sometimes we look at what we don’t have, rather than looking at what we do have. God has done so much for us.

Look at Ephesians 2:4-6—But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.

Read those verses again, looking at all the things God did for you. Thank Him for what He’s done. It’s not about what we can do, but about what He already did for us on the cross.

Many times we live as if Satan is in charge, as if he has more power than we do. We focus on his power and fail to see that in Christ, we have already won the victory. Jesus did it once and for all on the cross. He won! He already won! Do you believe that? Thank Him right now that He already won the victory.

And because He won, we can live in victory. That’s not to say that hard times won’t happen. That’s not to say that the enemy won’t attack us, he will. That’s what he does. His job is to try to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). He’ll steal, kill and destroy anything we allow him to. Sometimes by not doing anything at all, we allow the enemy to destroy us. We need to remember that we have the victory, because of what Jesus did for us.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be looking more at how we can walk in victory in our lives.

I pray God’s blessings and strength on you as you serve Him, in whatever capacities you are serving. I pray that today, you will be overwhelmed by God’s great love for you, as well as by His rich mercy and grace.
