Maintaining a Triumphant Lifestyle (demands both preparation & action of faith) 28.11.

2010
2 Cor. 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ A) Surely, God has a plan of triumph for us all and our responsibility is to prepare & take action of faith Jer 29:11+12-13 Then shall ye call upon me & ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Scripture: 2 Cor 4:7-12 B) Secret of every triumphant fighter: Preparation(stamina) + resolve to fight to the end (need this in fight of life)

 Weigh in with opponent (heavy weight vs lightweight) To know strength of champion, watch enemy • You are stronger than Him. Champion is man who in spite of blows and bruise is still standing. Rev12:11.
• We have been programmed by environment and situation and we need to take our self identity from God. Maintaining triumphing attitude Attitude determines altitude

Stop living in self pity. Rise up and move on. We all make mistakes. “I am sorry” It is my mistake 1) Prepare for triumphant living(50%). Develop mindset / spirit that cannot be hindered, stopped or
lted. Victory, like failure, doesn’t come by chance or circumstances but by choice. Et sera sera is not of God.

• a) b) c)

He who fails to prepare, prepare to fail.=> If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small Prov 24:10

Know your identity in Christ, can’t be who you are predestinated to be. 2 Cor 5:17/ Co-heir / 1 John 4:4 Know what God says about test and trials. 1 Cor 10:13; 2 Cor 4:17-18 Have a triumphant attitude. David encouraged himself in the Lord.1 Sam 30:6/ 2 My brethren, count it
all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4

 Rom 12:2 Be not conformed but be renewed in your heart => See problems as normal. No matter
who you are and what you do, problem will come (Can make it stepping stone to success)

2) Take right action (50%)Don’t lose God focus. Deal with people/situation based on rlship with God • Take responsibility. Stop blaming devil, God, brothers, fathers for every evil.Pray without ceasing
1 Thes 5:17 Assess the thing in the light of scripture.

Take action based on your identity in Christ. I am not what the people say I am. I am whom the Lord says I am / Mark 16:17-18 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall
speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. / John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

a) Locate the root of the prob (every prob has a cause) Prov 26:2 the curse causeless shall not come. b) Take action that controls your situation Refuse to surrender to forces outside. 2 Cor 4:7-9 / Woman
with dead son / Paul & Silas (Thought (mindset) => Decision => Action => Creates your situation!)

i. Control your thought. As he thinketh Prov 23:7 => The way you see self is how you believe other people
see you => For I am a man of uncircumcised tongues / we are like Grasshoppers (Attitude determine altitude)

• •

Determines type of relationship & friends around you (Joshua & Caleb; Daniel & Meshaq, Abednego). Determines opportunities that come your way. Determines the type of business proposal you will receive. Joseph was declared best for the Pharaoh Job. Daniel was declared best among his peers

ii. Control your decision (D not situation determines destination). What you choose in life depends on what you
see.

People see something wrong with their friends, neighbours, church etc because their attitude is negative .

iii. Control of action. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. • People run, resist or respond positively (way you deal with opposition => stepping zone to victory or problem)  Rest in the love of God (never doubt Him). Rom 8: 37-39/ Ask for forgiveness of sins if short.
