God Always Causes Us To Triumph
Daily encounters with problems, trials and tribulations have been, and always will be the norm for those that are seeking to live the Christian life. Resistance from Satan and His government, powers, principalities in high places and demonic activity throughout the world, will try to wear us down mentally, physically, emotionally and even spiritually. Whether it be a struggling marriage, financial difficulties, wayward children, drug or alcohol addiction, pornography addiction, anger, jealousy, fear, or so on and so forth, these all become daily battles in our life that we must overcome in order to proceed to greater heights in the kingdom of God. Our intimacy and communication with God is temporarily affected by these situations.
Apostle Paul gave an excellent testimony to the church at Corinth about his bout with the enemy:
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
7And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
8For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
