But I thank God, who always leads us in victory because of Christ. Wherever we go, God uses us to make clear what it means to know Christ. It’s like a fragrance that fills the air. To God we are the aroma of Christ among those who are saved and among those who are dying.
2 Corinthians 2 :14-15 GW
What really stood out to me in this scripture is that in Christ we will always be victorious even if we don’t always see the victory. He will show His favor upon us just because we are part of the family. People will either be drawn towards us because of the presence of God on our lives or they will be repelled because of it.
A great way for us to apply this scripture in our own lives is to understand that we can walk in confidence everywhere we go! Verse 14 lets us know that Christ will always lead us into victory. We do not have to walk through life feeling as though we are defeated or will be defeated. We can walk through life knowing that victory will always be ours because of what Christ did on the cross for us!
Father, I just want to thank You for everything that You have done in my life and for the favor that You have placed upon me. Thank You for the people that You have drawn towards me and for protecting me from the poisonous relationships with people that were sent to destroy me. Amen
