Strategy for Victory by Beth Auman

There is always a strategy for Victory through Jesus (The Word of God)

Isaiah 28:16 NASB Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.

2 Timothy 2:19 NASB Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”

When you find yourself in a difficult situation, in the near future – think back on what you may have done to cause the crack in your own foundation. Measure your life against the Word of God and find out where you have sinned.

Adonai is blamed for so many things that He has nothing at all to do with. The fact is that we live in a sinful world. The devil evil and a liar and he hates us. We choose to sin and cause cracks in our own foundations. The devil cannot make us relinquish our free will. He can bait us though. Once we give into sin – he has free acces. Even a small crack in our foundation can cause major difficulties.  Whatever you do don’t blame ADONAI! Yield yourself rather to His plan because once you yield and repent He seals that crack in your foundation and the devil’s access is denied!

Sowing and reaping is good ground for Growing and completing! That old devil may get you once but learning from our mistakes and yielding to wisdom ensures that he won’t do that again. Galatians 6:7-9 (NASB) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.

1 Peter 5:8 (NASB)Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 [a]But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your [b]brethren who are in the world. 10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.

Revelation 3:8 (NASB)‘I know your [a]deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

Accountability and integrity are important to Adonai. He created us and gave us free will. Many use that free will to live recklessly and in rebellion.

He gave us the entire BIBLE – Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, to live by. He placed promises within His Word. He gave us His Son Jesus to provide a way back to Him though repentance when we fall short and sin.

He will never take away our free will. We have the option to serve Him entirely or not at all, but please understand there is no grey area.

That is where we are in this world right now. People want a grey area. They want to dabble and cross from side to side. This is what creates cracks in your foundation and allows the devil access to your life.

The Definition of Repentance is to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life. In other words Don’t repeat the sin. Allow The Word of the LORD – the BIBLE to define what is sin and if His Word says not to do something then don’t do it.

Through Jesus we have the choice to repent when we make mistakes. God even made a plan for us to have the opportunity to come back into fellowship with Him. He Loves and wants His best for your life, He Loves His family. The way that He designed is the best Way of Life. Jesus is the Way. The Only Way to God. There is no other way that has ever been made.

His promises are true. He promised that He would be with you if you choose Him. He will never leave or forsake you. Examine yourself and if there are areas in your life that are not blessed by Adonai, go back to The Word of God – the Bible and examine areas of your life where you have allowed cracks in your foundation. Find them, Repent and don’t ever do that again. Always remember that Adonai Loves you and that Jesus paid the ultimate price for you to have the opportunity to fellowship and ultimately live eternally with Adonai in heaven.

1 Thessalonians 5:19 (NASB) 19 Do not quench the Spirit; 20 do not despise prophetic [a]utterances. 21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every [b]form of evil.

Isaiah 43:2 (NASB) “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.

Hebrews 13:5-7 (NASB) Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say,

“The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid.
What will man do to me?”

Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the [a]result of their conduct, imitate their faith.

I speak Shalom over all of you who have chosen to read this and Praise Adonai in Jesus name for your Victory in Him. Amen
