7 Reaons God Wants You To Be Victorious

. .

Have you watched a television series where the star of the show is always in eminent peril?

No matter how real the scene feels you already know for sure that the creator and writers of the television show will never kill off the hero … or the star who plays the hero.

Just like the movies. . .God wants you to be a star that will never be defeated by the enemy.  In fact, not only never lose. . .but win every single time.

Now, we didn’t say it would always look like you’re winning … or you’d always feel like you’re winning.  But after reading the following scriptures … you can know the devil doesn’t stand a chance against the power that is working on your behalf.  And yes, we have a part to play but He shows us how.

This teaching will enlighten, enrich and empower you to great victories . . . every day.

First John 5:4 in the King James Bbible says:

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”

Here are three scriptures which should strengthen and energize your faith against every attack of the enemy.

First, 2 Corinthians 4:8 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair.”

The attack on you, your family, health or finances. . .may be intense. . .but you will never be defeated. That scripture alone should strengthen you when you feel afraid!  But there’s more.

Hebrews 13:6 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?” 

Have you ever heard the song “Unbreakable” by Fireflight?  Maybe not, because it’s a Christian rock band and probably not your taste for Christian music . . .however, the song contains some amazing faith-filled lyrics.

“Where are the people that accused me? The ones who beat me down and bruised me They hide just out of sight, can’t face me in the light They’ll return but I’ll be stronger.

“God I want to dream again, take me where I’ve never been I wanna go there, this time I’m not scared.  Now I am unbreakable, it’s unmistakable No one can touch me, nothing can stop me.”

Nobody can touch you. . .nobody can stop you. . .nobody can defeat you. . .nobody can do anything to you. . . Why can we be so sure?  … because God’s got your back.

Isaiah 54:17 in the King James Version says:

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”

You already know the outcome. . .it’s your inheritance.

Here are the seven reasons why God wants you to be victorious.

1.       Your Father wants you to be victorious.

No loving Father ever wants His children to lose. 

Yet your Heavenly Father is so far above any earthly father no matter how virtuous or wonderful he is or might have been.

God wants us to win…..EVERY TIME and He has the power available to pull it off.

2 Corinthians 2:14 in the King James Version says:

“Now thanks be unto God, which ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH in Christ….”

Personalize that verse.

“Now thanks be unto God, which ALWAYS CAUSETH <<Your Name>> TO TRIUMPH in Christ….”

The enemy has the ability to deceive, accuse and tempt . . .that’s it.

Admittedly, he knows how to use it very well at times. 

BUT JESUS took away the power of death, hell and the grave when He made an open show of the devil.

The Bible plainly states that Jesus disarmed Satan and all his demon hoards.

Colossians 2:15 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“(God) disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it (the cross).”

Remember the Word of God says we are always supposed to triumph, not just 51 percent of the time, not even 85 percent of the time, but always.

How much easier this sounds when we realize Satan has no weapon that will work against us.

Matthew 28:18 in the New International Version says:

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”

If Jesus has all the authority … in heaven and on earth… what power does Satan have against us?  Only what we let him have.

2.       Your Heavenly Father paid a heavy price to make you victorious.

Would you be willing to send your son or daughter to die for someone you didn’t know?

Many parents have faced that question as they’ve seen their sons and daughters ship out to war zones where they stand in harm’s way in defense of our freedom not knowing if they will return.

God sent His only begotten Son with the knowledge that His Son would definitely die for our sins.

When Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph. . .God knew that His Son would die a horrible, excruciatingly painful death.

When Jesus amazed the scholars in the Temple. . .God knew His Son would be wrongly accused, persecuted, lied about and suffer intense humiliation.

When Jesus rode victoriously into Jerusalem to the cheers of the people . . . God knew it wouldn’t be long before His Son would be sold out and despised by those same people.

Yet. . .knowing all these things. . .He still sent His Son. . .so we would be victorious over sin, death and the grave.

1 John 4:10 in the New Living Translation says:

“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 

Can you even begin to imagine how much God loves us?  His willingness to send His only begotten Son for the forgiveness of our sins proves it.

Hebrews 9:15 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“[Christ, the Messiah] is therefore the Negotiator and Mediator of an [entirely] new agreement (testament, covenant), so that those who are called and offered it may receive the fulfillment of the promised everlasting inheritance--since a death has taken place which rescues and delivers and redeems them from the transgressions committed under the [old] first agreement.”

3.       You have the tactical advantage in any battle.

One of the most successful military strategies an enemy can employ in warfare is to separate you from your supply lines. . .to keep you from receiving reinforcements or supplies.

That’s exactly what the devil wants to do when he has you, your family, your finances and/or your health under attack. . .he wants to separate you from your supply line (God). . .to keep you from receiving reinforcements and orders from your spiritual headquarters (the Word).

The only way the enemy can spiritually terrorize you. . .is by doubt, separation and isolation.

When you find yourself under attack whether it’s a natural enemy or spiritual enemy indecision can be costly.  Even though you may not know the best strategy to employ at any given moment. . .God does.

Your tactical advantage is your personal relationship with the Holy Spirit and your reliance on the Word of God.

Do you remember the scripture we read when we started this teaching?  We need to commit Hebrews 13:6 in the Classic Amplified Bible to memory so we never forget its power:

“So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?” 

Focused faith in His Word. . .gives you a peace that passes understanding during every enemy attack.  You know the Calvary (Holy Spirit overcoming power) is on the way because of the cross.

Psalm 121:1-2 says:

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”

Always remember, the battle is not yours. . .but the Lord’s. We need to learn to yield to Him in faith … casting our care on Him.

Joshua 10:8 in the New Living Translation says:

“Do not be afraid of them,” the Lord said to Joshua, “for I have given you victory over them. Not a single one of them will be able to stand up to you.”

You will never have to face any battle alone.

Mark 9:27 in the New Century Version says:

“Jesus took his hand and helped him to stand up.”

Hebrews 13:5 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not,[I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]”

4.       God will provide you with a safe house.

Psalm 61:3 says:

“For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.”

When I want to mentally decompress. . .I enjoy watching movies where the good guy (God) wins and the bad guy (the devil) loses.

When someone needs to escape from or testify against the bad guys . . . they’re often placed in a safe house.  The purpose of the safe house is to protect the good guys from the bad guys.

 Isn’t it nice to know that your Heavenly Father. . .the Great I Am. . .wants to place you in His safe house. . .away from the attacks of the enemy and the hordes of hell.

There’s one main difference between God’s safe house and the ones you find in the movies.

In the make believe world. . .you never want the enemy to know where you are. . .because they will find a way to attack your location and kill you.

When you’re in God’s safe house. . .the enemy knows where you are . . . and he can’t do a thing about it. . .no matter how much he tries or even how he lies.  You’re fully protected.  Now that’s something to shout about.

Two more scriptures.

Proverbs 18:19 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong.”

Psalm 91:1 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stableand fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].”

5.       You’ve already won the battle. . .it’s in the script[ure].

1 John 4:4 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.”

In the Book of Revelation… the one book that tells the end of the story… the Apostle John was given what I call ‘inside information’ on what would take place in the end times.  He also writes for us … the key to overcoming the enemy in every way he comes against us.

Revelation 12:11 says:

“And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb [we were first born-again] and by the utterance of their testimony, [we ONLY confess what God says… not what the devil wants us to say] for they did not love and cling to life [we have given up life as the world lives it to live as the Lord instructs us to live in Him] even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].” 

We have the confidence in knowing our lives will one day take on total victory …

Joyce Meyer, the anointed teacher and author, said:

“Once I realized that right thinking is vital to victorious living, I got more serious about thinking about what I was thinking about, and choosing my thoughts carefully.”

6.       You have been given authority over every trick of the enemy.

Romans 8:37 in the King James Version says:

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

I decided to look up conqueror in the Strong’s Concordance.  It’s the Greek word hypernikaƍ (G5245) and it means:

“to be more than a conqueror, to gain a surpassing victory.”

I noticed that conqueror comes from the root word nikaƍ (G3528) which is translated 24 out of 28 times as overcome.  So it became obvious to me that in order to become a Kingdom Conqueror you must first be a World Overcomer.

What does the Word have to say about being an Overcomer?

Let’s begin with an example from the story of David and Goliath.  It’s found in 1 Samuel 17:9 in Today’s New International Version which says:

“If he is able to fight and kill me, we will become your subjects; but if I overcome him and kill him, you will become our subjects and serve us."

These are bold words spoken to David by someone who by worldly standards out gunned David in every way. The scriptures don’t record whether King Saul knew David was going to subject Israel to such a possible defeat but I think we can rest assured that David already knew the end from the beginning. 

He was not fighting this battle in his own strength… he knew in his heart that God would give him the victory.

As you fight the good fight. . .you’ve got to know that God will give you the victory.

Not only that. . .God expects you to win every time. . .because He’s give you total power and mastery over the devil

Luke 10:19 says:

“Behold, I give unto you [1] power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the [2] power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

The first word in this verse translated as power is the Greek word exousia.  It means “delegated power” or better said “authority.”

The second word translated power is the Greek word dunamis.  It means “ability.”  So notice carefully what God is actually saying.  “I give you authority over all the ability of the devil.”

Are you getting a hold of all of this?  You have total authority over all the ability of the enemy.  Remember the rest of Luke 10:19 says, “…nothing shall by any means hurt you”

The Bible literally says nothing shall hurt you.  It also says you have total power (authority) over any ability of the devil.

You never have to lose again.  You can always conquer and always triumph in all things.

7.       Always remember why He wants you victorious.

Why does God want you to be victorious?  It’s simple. . .He wants you to be busy about His business.

God doesn’t make you victorious and prosperous just for the purpose of raising your standard of living.  He prospers you so that you can raise your standard of giving.  Thus creating more victories than you can possibly even imagine.

Genesis 12:2 in the King James Version says:

“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.” 

The call of God upon Abraham can be the model for God’s call to us.

Just as God promised to bless Abraham, He will also bless us.  Why does God desire to bless His people? So we might become a blessing to others.

2 Corinthians 9:8 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:

“And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].”                 

No doubt, God wants us experiencing victory. . .so we can fund every good work and charitable donation.


Ephesians 3:20 in the Classic Amplified Bible contains more revelation about the seventh reason God wants you to be victorious.  The verse says:

“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].”

You are a winner in the game of life. . .He is giving you victory over the current situation you’re facing and every one you will ever face from now on.
