In a world that embraces “grey”, compromises to be politically correct, and slides down the slope of rationalization to validate their hearts not yielded to God; I find it wonderfully satisfying, and exciting, to walk intimately with God, who is unchanging and absolute. Because He is faithful to His Word, and IS love, God tells us over and over in His Word He will never leave us, He will never forsake us, He never changes, His agape love never fails, He will never break His covenant with us, we will never thirst again but have everlasting life if we drink of the water He gives, and we will never taste death (spiritual) if we receive what He says. I am thankful for all of those promises. The absolute I want to highlight today that I am particularly thankful for is one of the “always” statements about God. As Christians, God always leads us into triumph.
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us spreads and makes evident everywhere the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Him.
2 Corinthians 2:14
This verse is couched in a passage that tells us a Christian can manifest the sweetness of Jesus wherever they go. To the unsaved this will trigger their heart with the conviction needed to encourage them to receive Jesus, for the Christian that fragrance of Jesus is affirming of the everlasting life they have. Wherever God leads us, He does so leading us in triumph. That sweet fragrance of Jesus we emit, is the same sweetness we have available to always triumph, regardless.
Thank you Father for always leading me in triumph!
