"Now thanks be unto God, which
always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and
maketh manifest the savour of His knowledge by
us in every place." - 2 Corinthians 2:14
This is a very powerful verse of
scripture. Let's look at what is says to us. We
should always apply the Word of God to ourselves
personally, that's how it can best change us.
First of all, what is the heart
of this scripture? That we can always triumph!
But Brother Bill, some might say, "It doesn't
look like I'm always triumphing!" Well, you must
have not fulfilled the conditions of that verse
of of scripture. If you meet the conditions,
you'll have the promise! What are the
conditions? Let's see! First, that you have knowledge of
God's Word. Why? So that you can make the very savour of His knowledge manifest by you in every
place! You must have knowledge before you can
make it known.
Secondly, you must praise God and
give Him thanks. "Should we praise God for everything, Brother
Bill?" NO! Don't praise God for everything. To praise Him
everything would require you to praise Him for sickness and disease.
God is not the Author of that mess, Satan is! Satan is the
oppressor! (Acts 10:38, John 10: 10) Don't praise God for
everything, but rather give Him praise in everything. That's the
scriptural thing to do, as a matter of fact, it is His will that you
praise Him in everything. (1 Thess. 5:18) Why? Because praise is
strength! Besides, God is always worthy of praise!
