Assurance of Victory

“The breaker is come up before them; they have broken up, and have passed through the gate; and their King shall pass before them, and the Lord on the head of them.  Micah 2:13. Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33; Heb. 12:1,2.

Sometimes the enemy seems to get an advantage over us; but the battle is not over yet.  At last thou shalt have the victory, and carry the day, for all that.  In hard struggles, remember the power of Christ, who, in his resurrection, broke through every thing.  With him thou also canst break through, and be more than conqueror.  Yea, in every conflict, if thy faith be firm, thou canst be sure of victory beforehand; for faith engages Christ’s power, and his power insureth victory: it is as impossible for thine enemies to keep thee always in bonds, as it was impossible that Christ could be kept in the grave by the stone, seal, and keepers.  Nay, the greater their force is, the more glorious will be the victory of Christ over them.

Hosanna to our conquering King;
The prince of darkness flies;
His troops rush headlong down to hell,
Like lightning from the skies.

There bound in chains the lions roar,
And fright the rescued sheep;
But heavy bars confine their power
And malice to the deep.

Hosanna to our conquering King;
All hail, incarnate love;
Ten thousand songs and glories wait
To crown thy head above.

Thy victories and thy deathless fame
Through the wide world shall run,
And everlasting ages sing
The triumphs thou hast won.
_________
(A Golden Treasury ~ April 5)

Music: Fear Not, O Little Flock
