Victory is Certain

"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn, with many brothers and sisters. And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And he gave them right standing with himself, and he promised them his glory." (Rom. 8:28-30)

"I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)

"God turned into good what was meant for evil." (Gen. 50:20)

"He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever." (Rev. 21:4)

"For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ." (Heb. 3:14)

"For every child of God defeats this evil world by trusting Christ to give the victory. And the ones who win this battle against the world are the ones who believe that Jesus is the Son of God." (1 John 5:4-5)

"For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. " (Jer. 29:11)

"The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. " (Rom. 16:20)

Jesus says, "I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matt. 28:20)

"I will never fail you. I will never forsake you. That is why we can say with confidence, The Lord is my helper, so I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" (Heb. 13:5-6) The Lord says, "I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them. I will rescue them with a long life and give them my salvation." (Psalm 91:14-16)

"And the Saints overcame the accuser because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of their testimony. And they were not afraid to die." (Rev. 12:11)

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!" (Psalm 106:1)

"Why all the pain?" we cry out to our King in the midst of the battle. "Why is life so hard?" Answer: He is with you now! And the Rescuer will come! "But what about my sinful addictions, my broken relationships, my empty bank account, my physical handicap, my sickness, my family member who is hurting, my stress and anxiety...?" He is with you now! And the Rescuer will come! "But what about Satan, whose mission is to steal, kill, and destroy?" (John 10:10) He is with you now! And the Rescuer will come!

Why will the rescuer come? Because, Jesus says, "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep." (John 10:11) "I will give them eternal life, and they will never perish." (John 10:28-29) The most important tenant of our Christian faith is to believe that God is good. However, as is stated in the book Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, "Aslan is not safe, but He is good." Everything hinges on this truth - everything! Trusting that God is good in the midst of the chaos, the suffering, and the battles is the key to victory in this War. Often times we all will question His goodness - for that is Satan's greatest lie! And Satan has vast circumstantial evidence from the trials and tribulations of life to convince us otherwise. Yet our King has asked us to believe in His goodness, to trust Him, and to totally surrender to Him. If we do, "overwhelming victory is ours through Christ." (Rom. 8:37)
