Introduction

"Those who seek the Lord will lack no good thing."-Psalm 34:10
Listen to this confession 
YOU are the only being in the universe that can cause defeat in your life. Wholeheartedly decide, by the grace of God and the power of His Holy Spirit, to please God, and all the demons in and out of hell, all the people in the world, all your apparent weaknesses, shortcom­ings, inadequacies, adverse circumstances and unfavorable surroundings cannot prevent you from having glorious victory! "You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!"
THE KEY to thisdecision is to totally surrender to Jesus as Lord and then discover by revelation and meditation who you are in Christ. "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away; behold, the new has come" (2 Cor. 5:17).
We are not to live defeated lives, bound up in fear, doubt, unbelief, deceived into thinking we are still in bondage to sin, Satan, and feelings. God's intention is that we live victoriously. We are to five by faith. We are free from sin and condemnation, guilt and fear. We are a new creation. Jesus said, "I came that you might have life and have it in abundance." See yourself as God sees you. Step out of your ability and step into God's ability, and you will live a victorious Christian life.
We are not to contend with Satan for a place of victory, we are to overcome him from our position of victory. You can live in resurrection power. As a Christian, you don't have to be vexed by any compulsive habit. It is one thing to know you are forgiven your sins; it's another to realize that you are totally freed from sin's power. Every provision has been made for you to live victoriously. God never commands us to do something He doesn't fully equip us to do. Stop this defeatist mentality, failure-consciousness, sin-consciousness; it is not a matter of do. It is done! You are not just an old sinner, saved by grace. You were but now by grace you are no longer a sinner, you are a new creation. And it is no longer a matter of can or can't. It's will or won't. Every provision has been made for you to live victoriously.
Don't let ignorance or indolence rob you of the abundant life freely available to you. "Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." The time to get in spiritual shape is now! The time to develop and then release your faith is now! The greatest tests in life come unannounced. Therefore, we must prepare now. The wind and rain and storms come to everyone. You must pay the price. There are no shortcuts. Commit yourself to daily spend time in His presence developing your love relationship with Him and cultivating a sensitivity to His voice. Also, you've been given a measure of faith and you need to develop it now.
Commit yourself to daily reading the following verses from the Word of God at the start of your day. Read them aloud ("Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God"). Read them with conviction ("Whatever the task, do it heartily as serving the Lord"). Husbands and wives can read them together. On the authority of the Word of God, I promise you success if you will take God's Word seriously and pay the price. Jesus is the apostle and High Priest of your confession. "How can two walk together except they be agreed?" We must train ourselves to say the same thing as God says in His Word. Therefore, begin today to meditate upon your glorious God and His living and active Word.
