Victory Comes From The Lord.

Notes & Transcripts

In Genesis 28:10-22, we read about a turning-point in Jacob's life. Here, in Genesis 32:22-32, we have another turning-point. It's summed up in Genesis 32:28 - "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome." Jacob may "have overcome", but there is no-one who has overcome so mightily as our Lord Jesus Christ. He "drove out demons by the Spirit of God" and, in Him, we are overcomers - "They triumphed over him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony" (Revelation 12:11). Victory comes from the Lord - "He holds victory in store for the upright" (Proverbs 2:7). He is our "shield"; He "guards" and "protects" us in the heat of the battle (Proverbs 2:7-8). As we walk in the pathway of victory, we are led in "every good path" (Proverbs 2:9). We are led in a way which, the Lord says, "will be pleasant to your soul" (Proverbs 2:10).
