2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the fragrance of his knowledge by us in every place.

Praise God He always causes us to triumph but in order to triumph, there has to be opposition. Many new and mature believers have a misconception that when we become sold out for God, we’re exempt from problems. That may happen in heaven but because of sin; problems will continue to exist here on this current earth.

Don’t be discouraged, problems are a part of life. Once again, we have a God-guarantee that we will triumph over every situation we face. Disease, divorce, layoffs, and wayward children are all things we have the ability to overcome. We simply have to believe that through the blood of Jesus Christ, we have the victory. No matter how it looks or feels, we must stare that problem in the face and declare victory.

Praise God for our triumph but as we continue to live life, be prepared to fight.
