The Triumph Protocol

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place." 2 Cor. 2:14

Recently, a friend's example reminded me that we can triumph in any and all circumstances! I am always blessed to witness believers in Christ who choose celebration over complaining in the middle of challenge. This is not a diversion from challenge, but a proper response to it.

"Triumph" is the celebration that follows a victory. We see it all the time in arenas such as sports championships. In that setting, it would be inappropriate to celebrate BEFORE the victory because there is no spiritual reality in sports.

Our life of purpose in Christ is entirely about spiritual reality. We are governed by God’s promises though hope and faith. Celebrating before we “see” victory is our protocol because “We walk by faith and not by sight.” (2 Cor. 5:7)

Because of Christ, we don't have to wait to celebrate until we SEE victory, we celebrate NOW because we HAVE the victory! If you make a transaction to purchase property you have not seen with a trustworthy party, you can celebrate before you see the property.

This is reality. Remember that you are dealing a God that you have not seen, but the evidence of His reality is your life and his work in your life.

What’s more, your triumph of victory becomes a fragrant and hopeful witness to others.
