The born again child of God is empowered to live in victory over the flesh and the world. The power does not lie in the person himself, but in the Spirit that dwells in him, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ. Many claim to be born again but they are not victorious. They are tossed around by every new teaching and they do not have victory over the devil and the flesh.

If we follow Jesus and are guided by the Holy Spirit, the devil and the flesh will have no control over us. The devil controls, deceives and destroys the world through lies. He leads people down the road of destruction because they listen to him.

Jesus is the Good Shepherd His sheep hear His voice and they follow Him. He guides and protects them, and He gives them eternal life. Jesus cares for all His sheep, but not all of His sheep listen to Him and follow Him, and that is why they are being destroyed. They listen to other people, they follow after preachers and churches, the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Jesus gives His Holy Spirit in everyone who seeks and obeys Him, who repents and is baptized, who obeys His teachings and commandments as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus guides His own sheep. He did not appoint other shepherds. Most Christian believers are not His sheep, they were never born again. Others were born again but they are not following Jesus and that is why they are deceived, defeated and destroyed by satan.

Are you WALKING IN VICTORY? Are you following Jesus, the Good Shepherd, or are you following after strangers and being destroyed?

When last did you read the 23rd Psalm and does it have real meaning to you? Is Jesus, your Lord and Shepherd?

1The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not want.

2He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.

3He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

 4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for Thou are with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

May Jesus bless you.
