While others may fail, faithful Christians will Prevail. In Roman 8 we read: If God is for you who can be against you? Those who accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior know the answer to this question; no one!
Through your praise, prayers, and faithfulness you hold the keys to a life of Prevailing. If you enjoy ‘perfect peace’ you are surely able to avoid stumbling and falling. Enjoy your Joy!
They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the Lord, “to deliver you.” Jeremiah 1:19 NKJV
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all. The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned. Psalm 34:19, 22 NKJV
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Phillippians 3: 13-14 KJV
- Prevailers keep ‘pressing towards the mark’ because they know the Lord will deliver.
So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6 NKJV
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthian 15: 57-58 NKJV
- God gives us our victory if we stand firm. By interceding on our behalf we are ‘more than conquerors’. It’s not by our own might, it’s by the Almighty’s might.
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8: 31 – 37 NKJV

- Keep in mind what I call The True Believer’s Creed (from a December 2017 post):
- Remember the source of your Joy and one of a Christian’s best weapons; God and their Praise, respectively, in case you missed the earlier posts in this Praise, Pray, and Prevail Series.
- Look for Part 2 of this post next week.
To God be the Glory. If God is with you how can you not Prevail?
