Be Victorious

Victory Through Diligence

As a Warrior for Christ, when you are diligent in following the High Commander, victory over the enemy is certain!

D&C 103:36
All victory and glory is brought to pass unto you through your diligence, faithfulness, and prayers of faith.
Deuteronomy 28:7
The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
Zechariah 10:5
And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the Lord is with them.

Recognize Your Victories

Ponder what you are doing to put on the Whole Armor of God, and to live the Hero’s Creed. The Spirit will bring to your remembrance the successes you are having and tell you what more you can do. Taking the time to recognize when you have had victories is a way to celebrate your success. You are telling yourself and the Lord that you want more of this in your life. 

Alma 29:10
Then do I remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that he hath heard my prayer; yea, then do I remember his merciful arm which he extended towards me.

Record Your Victories

Making a record of your victories over Satan can be a powerful tool! This record can serve as a reminder of the journey you have been on, including struggles you have had and the support you have felt from the Lord and the successes you achieved when you have been diligent. You will have this record as a testimony for yourself and your posterity which will motivate and inspire for generations. 

Abraham 1:31
I shall endeavor to write some of these things upon this record, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me.

Share Your Victories

Your victories can be a great strength to others, inspiring them to see themselves as warriors for Christ and motivating them to prepare themselves for battle and fight against the enemy of righteousness. So tell others about your experiences putting on the Armor of God and living the Hero’s Creed. 

D&C 128:22
Brethren, shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad. Let the earth break forth into singing. Let the dead speak forth anthems of eternal praise to the King Immanuel, who hath ordained, before the world was, that which would enable us to redeem them out of their prison; for the prisoners shall go free.

warrior for Christ doesn’t share victories to brag, but to praise the Lord, that all may see His power working in them! So that when others see what the Lord has done, they too may rejoice! 

Alma 26:11-12
I do not boast in my own strength, nor in my own wisdom; but behold, my joy is full, yea, my heart is brim with joy, and I will rejoice in my God.  Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Victory is the Lord's

Remember, you are a Warrior for Christ. He is your High Commander and it is His victory. This battle is not yours to fight alone. The power to win these battles comes from uniting with Him, and He rejoices in all of your successes!

D&C 104:82
And inasmuch as ye are humble and faithful and call upon my name, behold, I will give you the victory.
Helaman 5:12
And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
Psalm 44:5-7
Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me. But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.
