TRIUMPHING IN ALL SITUATIONS

Lesson 43

How glorious to triumph in all situations by the power of the Holy Spirit!

2 Corinthians 2:14 King James Version (KJV)

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

In our own power it is not possible, but in the power of the Spirit as we put our trust in the Lord, all things are possible! 
The prerequisite is: “Only believe!” Mark 9:23

Our faith will be tested, but it is when our mind is renewed in the sure knowledge that God’s Word is true. He is not a man that He should lie, so we can put our trust completely in Him - resting in Him to bring the victory about as we praise Him, rejoicing in His goodness and grace.

We will have to exercise patience, but that works for our good, causing us to become wrapped in Him, lacking nothing.

James 1:2-8 TPT
My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested[c] it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.
And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and he will give it! He won’t see your lack of wisdom as an opportunity to scold you over your failures but he will overwhelm your failures with his generous grace.[d] Just make sure you ask empowered by confident faith without doubting that you will receive. For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next. Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas driven and tossed by the wind. You’re up one minute and tossed down the next. 7–8 When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable.[e] Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition?
