2 Corinthians 2:14 proclaims there is never ending victory for the children of God even today and every today. This scripture not only convicts me due to the lack of victory I experience at times, but also encourages me, revealing to me there can be uninterrupted victory in my life. If I do not understand from where my victory comes, I’ll be found trying TO DO many things to find it. Let’s look at what the scripture says.

2 Corinthians 2:14
Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes

manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place.

Notice where the triumph is found. In Christ. This exclusively speaks of faith in what Christ did at the cross. Not just Christ. If our faith in Christ is separated from His FINISHED WORK, we have a faith the Lord will not recognize. We can either believe this or continue to pretend. The Apostle Paul writes, “As you have received the LORD Jesus Christ, SO WALK YE ALSO IN HIM.” The Word of God reveals we can be in Christ, yet fail WALK IN HIM. (Rom. 8:1) Walking in Him SIMPLY means to keep our faith in what it was in when we were initially saved. The same FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST that Saved you from hell will also Save you from a gossiping tongue, lusting spirit, envy, strife, alcohol, drugs, terrible marriage etc… My bible says ALL principalities & powers were defeated by Christ as He triumphed over them, making an open show of them IN HIS CROSS. (Coloss. 2:14-16) Only a religious spirit would try to bring works in as part of deliverance. The only legitimate deliverance ministry is the ministry like that of the Apostle Paul, the preaching of Christ and Him crucified. For there is NO other way to be delivered from sin. So many with their lips say they know this, but their lives show they do not.

You can walk away from whatever it is holding you down, choking the life out of you simply by placing your faith back in the cross of Christ. If your faith is in what He did, you will be identified with His cross, and experiencing the victory that was provided you there. God bless.
