2 Corinthians 2:14 (Amplified Classic)
“But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere.”
Without a battle, there is no triumph. Without a fight, there is no victory. The fight of the Christian is a fight of faith. Fight the good fight of faith! Abide and reside in God’s presence. Be a hearer and a doer of His Word. We must stand on God’s Word and have ears to hear and a heart to receive what the Spirit of God is saying.
God’s plans are not dreary and mundane. His purposes do not cause us to moan and groan in despair. We delight ourselves in the Lord and serve Him with gladness, not sadness. His yoke is easy and His burden is light; it is not difficult or agonizing to serve the Lord. The path of the righteous keeps growing brighter and brighter. Religion and tradition are heavy burdens and miserable paths to take. That which is contrary to the Word and to the Spirit of God, brings a heavy burden; however, where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom and liberty!
The plans of the LORD include joy, peace, grace, and VICTORY! His plans always include reaching souls – saving souls – setting the captives free. Through God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation, this is plain to see: GLAD TIDINGS – GREAT JOY – GOOD NEWS – GOOD THINGS! Jesus went about doing GOOD and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him. In John 6:35 Jesus said, “I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”
As a Believer, you are a carrier of this LIVING WATER; you are a carrier of the BREAD OF LIFE. You have exactly what the lost need, what your city needs, what your nation needs. You carry the solution to humanity’s ills, sorrows, and problems. His name is JESUS – the SAVIOR OF THE WORLD. For God so loved the world that He gave His absolute best. Preach the Gospel with the power of God. Reach the lost. See with the eye of the Spirit; have the mind of the Spirit and the heart of the Spirit. Flow with the Holy Spirit; live a life that is wholly yielded unto Him. Be led by the Holy Spirit and He’ll show you which way to go. He’ll give you the blueprint to reach the lost. As you flow with the Holy Spirit and keep souls a priority, you will astound many, including yourself. To God be the glory! It’s time to bring in the harvest.
