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, make a name for myself and 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 to agents of evil.
My story begins 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. I had bottled up my emotions for many years. My immediate environment was full of hate and I yearned for unconditional love from somewhere. I felt alone and sabotaged. 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. 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.
It has been a beautiful Journey, I feel engulfed in a blessing of divine love. This love 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.
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.
Since having this spiritual experience, I can now figure out how and why the bible was definitely written by persons inspired by the Holy Spirit. It’s therefore to me a trustworthy source of divine words 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, you can discuss it with native speakers of the languages used in the original manuscripts. These were Hebrew, Latin, Greek and Aramaic.
Aramaic was “the lingua franca of the region when Jesus walked on earth as a human” .
I hope this excerpt from my long testimony helps you find and live a better life. A life that will make you escape eternal damnation which is the second death.
I claim the following promise over my life and on the lives of my family.
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.
