Welcome to Live In Victory website.
It will be a privilege to enrich the spiritual life of anyone who reads inspired articles that I write from my experiences as a Christian. I have freely received, so I will freely give. (Mathew 10:8)
I don’t wish to appear like I have answers to the ways of righteousness nor do I intend to use this site to build a tall tower and make a name for myself or to wow other humans!
Ever since I got an experience with God, I got a dose of his power in my spirit that helps me overcome evil. This was a wonderful experience for I was before, a powerless person against evil. Evil made me lead a life of fear. Fear made me a doormat of any human that was a channel of darkness.
My story begins here…
In early April of 2015, I boarded a plane from Melbourne to Launceston in one of my usual work trips then. I was at the lowest point of my life after I had separated from a relationship of several years. Nothing seemed to work for me at all. My efforts to reconcile failed . I hit the lowest emotional level that any human being can reach. I had a bottled up frustration from many years of trying to gain unconditional love from another human. I contemplated self destruction. I yearned for someone to come and hug me and tell me that all will be OK. Nobody was there. I felt alone and sabotaged. I had invested a lot the best way I knew how in my relationships and it hurt.
This was the last day of my trip and as I drove to the airport, for some weird reasons that I didn’t understand, I felt that I needed to surrender all to my creator. I didn’t know how to but said aloud, ” I surrender my life to you God. I can’t fix it. Please fix it”. I said this genuinely and I meant it! Surprisingly, for the first time in my life, I had no intention of ever trying to control my destiny again.
What happened next was beautiful! Instantly, as I sped at 100 km per hour on the motorway to the Airport, I had an emotional meltdown, sorrows from years of trying to be hard-hearted, frustrations and acute pain started melting from my heart. I could feel God’s love starting to flow freely through to my soul. Tears were streaming down my cheeks as I humbled myself further before God in that car and accepted responsibility for my sins without blaming someone else for them.
I could not explain then why all of a sudden I was engulfed with this experience but I now know that God was waiting for this act of humility to respond. It proves to me (and I have also heard it preached elsewhere) that humility is an act of your will. You need to humble yourself, forgive people their wrongs against you, irrespective of whether they deserve it or not and forget the past.
I didn’t stop the car but continued with these warm experience. I was filled with God’s peace and assurance.This felt very strange since for many years I had not known this kind of peace. Just a few hours earlier I was reflecting on my frightening past.
I flew back home that evening and over the following weeks I felt drawn to joining church groups for prayers and teachings. I attended many christian fellowships and seminars (paid or free). I sought deliverance from the unclean spirits that were alive in me. Then I realized that the sorrows and pain I had were gone once the unclean spirits left me. (NOTE: unclean spirits enter our human spirits from our own actions or from the actions of our ancestry. That’s why when cleaning your spirit, both types of unclean spirits should be addressed.)
I started loving people. I felt like hugging everyone in the train as I went to work. I was very happy.
John 8:32 (NIV) Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free…
It has been a beautiful Journey with God’s love increasing in my heart. I don’t need to be with someone to get this type of love. It completes me in all ways. Love that is warm, love that covers faults from people around me, love that heals the soul and love that gives indescribable peace.
I hug my pillow at night and go to sleep drenching myself in His love and peace. Just like a baby sleeps in total peace holding on to it’s mama, without a fear and confident that this is its place of protection.
John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.
Many sins we struggle with are tied to deep reference for other things above God.
I didn’t have the ability see that before because I was obviously living in idolatry and God hates idolatry. Idolatry was the main sin that operated in my heart and had opened doors to other sins.
Demonic networks through persons you trust will always try to trap you through what they think you may like or what they are already trapped in. In this networks they worship the creation. They will use any language to persuade you and rope you in, to their idolatry. Once it takes root, evil streams will start flowing into every part of your life.
Its important to note that God’s blessing come without sorrow.
Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.
It’s also scriptural for us to guard our hearts against anything that pierces our hearts with sorrows.
I have now formed a habit of having a quiet love relationship with the Holy Spirit.
Many times we go to the prayer room or closet to fight and shout. I have no problem with that, I sometimes do that.
I find giving your spirit enough quiet moments in the presence of God by going through all your pains, longings and hopes creates a strong bond with your creator.
Several people that I didn’t even know commended about the glitter that they could see on my face (Psalm 34:5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame).
In order to guard myself from falling prey to seducing voices, I have made the bible my final reference for what I read, hear or watch.
The bible was written by persons inspired by the Holy Spirit and therefore is a trustworthy word of God and has no error.
However, the translators of the scriptures were not necessarily led by the Holy Spirit. When translating the scriptures to modern languages they made many mistakes and it’s wise to read scriptures from more than one translation when in doubt. In some cases you can discuss it with native speakers of the languages used in the original manuscripts like Hebrew, Latin, Greek or Aramaic “the lingua franca of the region when Jesus walked on earth as a human” .
I hope this testimony helps you to live a better life. If we don’t meet here on earth, let’s look forward to meeting in heaven one day.
May God be praised for ever!
I am a Christian who claims the following promise.
Isaiah 54:17 (NIV) no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.
