The three words declared by Jesus Christ during His final minutes on the cross carry a great deal of power, with the result that, when fully understood, every struggle to achieve anything in life as a child of God actually begins from the finish line.
The finish line in any race or competition is the place where the winner is determined. No matter your challenge in life, Jesus has dealt with it through His death, so you should have the mentality that you are already victorious. Are you sick? Are you faced with a challenge in your walk with God, in your business, in your career, in your academics, in your family, or in your health? Remember that the work is finished; it has come to an end.
When Jesus said, “It is finished”, He recognised the full price for our redemption. He understood that He had to carry the sins of the entire human race and nail them to the cross. So when He said, “It is finished”, He was confirming that all of mankind’s sin had been dealt with. The ultimate price had been paid. There was absolutely no area that the devil could lay hold of again. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him. He took 39 stripes representing the 39 classes of diseases in the world today. He was pierced and His body was lacerated. What else is there? Beloved, the full price has been paid.
In view of this, I declare you a winner in every area of your life. Declare yourself victorious over every challenge. Refuse to accept or consider any contradictory evidence. You will see the manifestation of greatness in your life.
2 Corinthians 2:14
