If we ever wonder if we have what it takes to live in victory, we have only to look at the life of our Savior. Jesus walked by the Spirit, the same Holy Spirit who lives in us We have the same Spirit, the same authority, and the same power.
Our problem is that we don’t know it, or we know it and don’t appropriate it, or we don’t believe it’s for today. Our faith is small. It moves sandcastles, not mountains.
Just before Jesus ascended, He said:
All authority has been given to Me in heaven and
on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the
nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and
the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe
all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you
always, even to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:1820 NASB)
The One who has all authority told you to go, and He promised to be with you always. Take up your sword and gothe gates of hell will not overpower you.
