Scripture Reading by Lady Pepper (Show Slide)

(Show Slide) Thank you Lady Pepper for the announcements and the reading of God’s Word.
Let’s all get on one accord and Stop what you doing and hear the “Word of God”
My Message is entitled:

Three Steps To A Victorious Christian Life

1 John 5:4 (NKJV)
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.


ABC Wide World of Sports use to come on with the words “The Thrill of Victory and the agony of defeat.” There is nothing as exciting as winning. The taste of victory in our lives is sweet. Victory is essential to our health and happiness. Defeat is destructive to our lives, and remaining in defeat can destroy our faith. It is not God’s will for your life to walk in defeat, but it is His will for you and I to rise-up in the middle of Satan’s attacks upon our lives and live in victory.

I. To Live in Victory You Must Think Victorious

Gloom breads failure
1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV
57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
The old saying goes you are what you eat.
The same is true for our lives:
If you are defeated in your thought life with negative thoughts of failure then you will never win.
But If you put your mind into victory and HOPE you will always win.
Romans 15:13 NKJV
13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We have hope
I don’t want to fall into the hands of a doctor without HOPE
I don’t want to fall into the hands of a lawyer without HOPE
I don’t want to fall into the hands of a minister without HOPE
Psalm 71:14 NKJV
14 But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more.
We serve the God of hope
Not the God of defeat
Not the God of pessimism
Not the God of disillusion
We have HOPE and beyond
We have blessed assurance
Psalm 98:1 NKJV
1 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.
You can live in doom and gloom or you can live your life surrounded in HOPE
2. David never allowed himself to focus on problems
He will never be remembered as a blues singer
He had bumps in life
He had battles in life
He had failures in life
He had difficulties in life
He wept
He mourned
BUT he learned to live in praise
Psalm 42:5 NKJV
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.
3. Learning to Live in Praise is Essential to Victorious Living
Praise builds our courage
(Jehosphat) II Chronicles 20
(Paul & Silas) Acts 16:20
(John) Revelations 1:10
Praise builds our faith
Praise puts our faith into action
The building of our faith pleases God; It excites God when we trust Him.
Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Praising God in the midst of our trials is like saying: “God you are my source of strength and though storms rise and winds howl, my trust is in you.”
Praise brings the power of Heaven to our aid
2 Samuel 22:6–8 NKJV
6 The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me. 7 In my distress I called upon the Lord, And cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry entered His ears. 8 “Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of heaven quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry.
God heard
God moved

II. To Live in Victory You Must Take Your Eyes of Circumstance

1. Peter got out of the boat
Peter focused on Christ not the storm
As his attention shifted he began to sink
2. Lame man at pool of Bethesda
Read John 5:3-9
The King of kings walked into the mans presence
Jesus asked him, “Do you want to be healed?”
The man focusing on the circumstance, “I have no man to help me…”
Get your eyes off the circumstance and get your eyes on me.
3. Sometimes attacks come and they are so heavy that they overwhelm us, and it is hard not to focus on the problems that we are dealing with.
When you are faced with loss in your life it is difficult to stay focused
Loss of health
Loss of loved one
Loss of possessions
Attacks are hard and they hurt, they bring pain and suffering into your life.
But Jesus is our CHAMPION, our REFUGE, our STRONG TOWER, our SHELTER in the storm.
He is the God of HOPE
Focus on the Promise not the problems.

III. To Live In Victory You Must Never Accept Defeat

My Dad always told me “Never Give Up”
1. To many Christians come under attack and they give up. They want to just sit down and not move.
2. They think if I don’t do anything maybe the devil want notice me, and he will leave me alone: WRONG. You merely exist in defeat.
3. When you are defeated forward progress is stopped
When your Pray life is stopped you are living in defeat
When your Devotional life is stopped you are living in defeat
When your Commitment to service is stopped you are living in defeat
4. Some folks are sitting in pews and haven’t done anything for the kingdom in years.
Blame lack of time; “I’m am to busy”
Blame burn out; “I did it now let someone else do it”
Look for any excuse not to be profitable for the Master
5. Don’t live in defeat do something


Put Johnson in!
It was the middle of a high school football game, and the home team was losing.
They just could not do anything.
One irate fan yells at the sidelines, “Put Johnson in!”
The sidelines yell back, “Johnson is in!”
The fan yells again, “Well take Johnson out!”
In other words do something.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 NKJV
10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.
In II Kings 7 There is a story of Samaria under siege.
No food
Most of the animals had been eating.
Many were starving to death.
4 Lepers lay at the gate discussing their options
We can go into the city and die
We can stay here and die
We can go over to the Arameans;
If they spare us we live
If they kill us we die
They decided to do something
God rewards faith put into action
They found they enemy gone
They found food
They found treasure
Because they decided to do something
Peter When he got out of the boat and walked on the water didn’t hear a mad rush behind him of others jumping out of the boat.
Peter did something


You can live in victory. You don’t have to remain in defeat.
1. Set your mind to thinking victory
2. Don’t focus on problem focus on the Promise
3. Do Something get up and get moving.
These are the steps to victory. As you begin to make these steps you will find that God provides victory in every situation of your life.
Let’s pray together.


The Word of God says in:
John 3:16
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Romans 10:13
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you’d would like to receive Jesus today, please pray this prayer with all of us:
Lord I believe that Jesus is the son of God, and that He died On the cross for my sins and His resurrection from the dead gives me eternal life. I ask forgiveness of my sins, and I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen.

Lady Pepper Please Join Me

Pepper: Any comments or thoughts?
I would like to give a shout out, to one of our founding Faith Vision Members: Sharon Cooper (who I affectionately refer to as Cooper Girl
Who visited Lee Howard, on two different occasions in the Nursing home.
On one particular visit she began to read the word for you today our daily devotional. (great example)
On the second visit she started talking to him and he opened his eyes and focused.
She asked if he knew who she was and he nodded, and closed his eyes back.
Thank you Cooper girl for visiting the sick, and showing everyone matters in the kingdom of God.
Lady Pepper do we have any prayer request
Let us pray (P/P)
