Victory in Jesus

By Pastor Chris Monnerjahn

Micah 2:13 (AMP) “The breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them]. They will break out, pass through the gate and go out; So their King goes on before them, the Lord at their head.”

Our Lord is the waymaker. He is the miracle worker.  He specializes in the hard cases, for His word even tells us that there is nothing too difficult for Him.  As a matter of fact, there is nothing too easy for Him either.  Our God is the God of the breakthrough.  He is the way.  He can do all things.  What kind of breakthrough do you need in your life?  Look to Jesus today. He is the way, the truth, and the life!  He is our victorious breaker and leader.  

Charles Spurgeon writes, “Inasmuch as Jesus has gone before us, things remain not as they would have been had He never passed that way. He has conquered every foe that obstructed the way. Cheer up now thou faint-hearted warrior. Not only has Christ travelled the road, but He has slain thine enemies. Dost thou dread sin? He has nailed it to His cross. Dost thou fear death? He has been the death of Death. Art thou afraid of hell? He has barred it against the advent of any of His children; they shall never see the gulf of perdition. Whatever foes may be before the Christian, they are all overcome. There are lions, but their teeth are broken; there are serpents, but their fangs are extracted; there are rivers, but they are bridged or fordable; there are flames, but we wear that matchless garment which renders us invulnerable to fire. The sword that has been forged against us is already blunted; the instruments of war which the enemy is preparing have already lost their point. God has taken away in the person of Christ all the power that anything can have to hurt us. Well then, the army may safely march on, and you may go joyously along your journey, for all your enemies are conquered beforehand. What shall you do but march on to take the prey? They are beaten, they are vanquished; all you have to do is to divide the spoil. You shall, it is true, often engage in combat; but your fight shall be with a vanquished foe. His head is broken; he may attempt to injure you, but his strength shall not be sufficient for his malicious design. Your victory shall be easy, and your treasure shall be beyond all count.”

Now that my friends, is good news!  Actually, it is great news!  Jesus has gone before us and continues to go before us.  So cheer up and celebrate the victory we have in Jesus today.
