Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Jesus never changes. He is eternally constant. You can know with complete assurance that He will enforce the Word of God, for He never veers from it. Since Jesus victoriously triumphed over Satan at the Cross, you can always count on Him to be victorious.
"For I am the Lord, I do not change&" (Mal. 3:6). Defeat is not a part of God's nature. He is successful in everything that He wants accomplished on the earth. Through the blood of Jesus, you are united with the life of God. You, therefore, can live in the same victory that is part of God's nature.
Most Christians who do not have a firm foundation of the Word of God in their hearts live "roller coaster lives." They go up and down moment by moment with each obstacle and trial that faces them. Without knowing the character of God or what His Word says, many think this "roller coaster experience" is normal. This type of thinking couldn't be further from the truth.
God wants you to live a constant life of victory. Your constancy is based on His record. If you always stand on His Word and never veer from what it says, you won't change either. Like God, you will live in a position of constant triumph and victory.
Your steadfast confession is what will put you over. When you use the authority that Jesus gave you, you can speak to any mountain of adversity and watch it crumble before you. Bad circumstances don't have to disturb you when your trust is in the Word.
Jesus Christ is still the same. The victory He obtained over the devil is still in effect. Satan has not won back any territory since his defeat. Stand firm in the victory Christ has obtained for you.
DECLARATION OF FAITH
Since God and Jesus never change, I won't change my position of victory. I will always stand on the Word, which guarantees my victory. Through the Word, I am consistent, constant, and steadfast. I always triumph in Christ.
