“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish.” (2Corinthians 2:14-15). We triumph in Christ each time we celebrate His victory in the face of opposition and stand firm in the liberty Christ gave us. Difficult situations and obstacles will come but holding firm the promises of God shows our unwavering faith. This kind of faith is required to show forth His power and victory over all. When we go through tests, it’s time to show our knowledge of the ways of God. How would God handle the circumstance? What will Jesus do? God wants us to always apply the knowledge of His Word irrespective of who is involved. Our resolve to be ambassadors of the gospel will draw people to Jesus. Scripture says “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea” (Habbakuk 2:14).
Rejoicing in God’s promises is one key way to access His triumphant grace. He wants us to lead our lives in such a way that Christ will be seen in all that we do. We are the Bible people see, read and observe everywhere. Stir up the Spirit of God in your environment. Let people hunger for more of God once they relate with you. In Greek culture and history, triumph is the intense celebration that happens after battle. And God also expects you to triumph- to intensely celebrate your victory even when you are faced with difficult situations. When you celebrate over an issue, God equips you with all you need to physical surmount the hurdles. Celebrate God’s capacity to make you triumph! The Bible says our faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Faith is the believer’s voice of victory. Declare your faith in intense triumph before God! You won’t be defeated. You have the voice of total victory.
