I saw the Spirit, a beautiful crown, covered with jewels of green, turquoise, red, amber. I understood the Spirit was waiting for those who would not give up! Who would hold fast to their belief in spite of any circumstances that would come. Victory happens when we believed based on faith not on sight. True victory comes, not from trusting in human strength, but in God. We are not just victorious, but we are more than conquerors.

MATT 9:28-29 And they followed him right into the house where Jesus was staying. So Jesus asked them, Do you believe that I have the power to restore sight to your eyes? They replied, Yes Lord, we believe!

29 Then Jesus put his hands over their eyes and said, You will have what your faith expects!  TPT

Phil 4:1 THEREFORE, MY brethren, whom I love and yearn to see, my delight and crown (wreath of victory), thus stand firm in the Lord, my beloved. AMP


Phil 4:1 My dear, dear friends! I love you so much. I do want the very best for you. You make me feel such joy, fill me with such pride. Don't waver. Stay on track, steady in God. MSG

2 TIM 4:5 But you be vigilant in all things, dont allow the devastating things that you suffer to get to you! Continue in the full persuasion of your ministry as herald of the Good News; you cannot have a more poetic job description!

6 So here I am, my life is poured out as a wine offering on the altar of ministry; I am ready to go!

7 Like a champion athlete I have run my race and completed the course; I have carefully attended to the faith!  

8 My wreath of righteousness awaits me as testimony to the Lords righteous judgment. He will crown me in that day, the moment I step out of this body. I will not be the only one receiving a wreath of honor; everyone, loving the brilliance of his appearing will be jointly crowned!   MIRROR

James 1:12 Anyone who meets a testing challenge head-on and manages to stick it out is mighty fortunate. For such persons loyally in love with God, the reward is life and more life.  MSG

Mal 3:16 Then those whose lives honored God got together and talked it over. God saw what they were doing and listened in. A book was opened in God's presence and minutes were taken of the meeting, with the names of the God-fearers written down, all the names of those who honored God's name.

17 God-of-the-Angel-Armies said, "They're mine, all mine. They'll get special treatment when I go into action. I treat them with the same consideration and kindness that parents give the child who honors them. MSG


Mal 3:16 Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name.

17 And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.AMP

Rom 4:20 He didn't tiptoe around God's promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God,

21 sure that God would make good on what he had said.

22 That's why it is said, "Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right."

23 But it's not just Abraham;

24 it's also us! The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless. MSG  ↕↕↕

ROM 4:20-21 He never stopped believing Gods promise, for he was made strong in his faith to father a child. And because he was mighty in faith and convinced that God had all the power needed to fulfill his promises, Abraham glorified God!

22 So now you can see why Abrahams faith was credited to his account as righteousness before God.

23 And this declaration was not just spoken over Abraham,

24 but also over us. For when we believe and embrace the one who brought our Lord Jesus back to life, perfect righteousness will be credited to our account as well.  TPT

HEB 4:11 Let us therefore be prompt to understand and fully appropriate that rest and not fall again into the same trap that snared Israel in unbelief.

12 The message God spoke to us in Christ, is the most life giving and dynamic influence in us, cutting like a surgeons scalpel, sharper than a soldiers sword, piercing to the deepest core of human conscience, to the dividing of soul and spirit; ending the dominance of the sense realm and its neutralizing effect upon the human spirit. In this way a persons spirit is freed to become the ruling influence again in the thoughts and intentions of their heart. The scrutiny of this living Sword-Logos detects every possible disease, discerning the bodys deepest secrets where joint and bone-marrow meet.

13 The entire person is thoroughly exposed to his scrutinizing gaze.   

14 In the message of the incarnation, we have Jesus the Son of God representing mankind in the highest place of spiritual authority. That which God has spoken to us in him is his final word. It is echoed now in our conversation.

15 As High Priest he fully identifies with us in the context of our frail human lives. Having subjected it to close scrutiny, he proved that the human frame was master over sin. His sympathy with us is not to be seen as excusing weaknesses which are the result of a faulty design, but rather as a trophy to mankind.  

16 For this reason we can approach the authoritative throne of grace with bold utterance. We are welcome there in his embrace, and are reinforced with immediate effect in times of trouble.  MIRROR

Heb 11:7 By faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn't see, and acted on what he was told. The result? His family was saved. His act of faith drew a sharp line between the evil of the unbelieving world and the rightness of the believing world. As a result, Noah became intimate with God. MSG

James 1:5 If you don't know what you're doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You'll get his help, and won't be condescended to when you ask for it.

6 Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who "worry their prayers" are like wind-whipped waves. MSG

James 1:16 So, my very dear friends, don't get thrown off course.

17 Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle.

18 He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures. MSG

Heb 3:12 So watch your step, friends. Make sure there's no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God.  MSG

MARK 9:23 Jesus said to him, What do you mean if? If you are able to believe, all things are possible to the believer.

24 When he heard this, the boys father cried out with tears, saying, I do believe, Lord; help my little faith!  TPT

LUKE 17:5 His missionaries said to him, Master, we will need a lot more faith to make this possible!

6 But Jesus replied, You don't need any more faith. Faith is not measured by the size of the challenges it faces. Even if your faith seems as insignificantly small as a mustard seed, it has what it takes for you to uproot a massive sycamore tree and tell it be planted in the ocean! MIRROR

John 20:29 Jesus said to him, Because you have seen Me, Thomas, do you now believe (trust, have faith)? Blessed and happy and to be envied are those who have never seen Me and yet have believed and adhered to and trusted and relied on Me.



John 20:29 Jesus said, "So, you believe because you've seen with your own eyes. Even better blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing."  MSG

PS 20:7 Some find their strength in their weapons and wisdom, but my miracle-deliverance can never be won by men. Our boast is in Yahweh our God, who makes us strong and gives us victory! TPT

ROM 8:37 On the contrary, in the thick of these things our triumph remains beyond dispute. His love has placed us above the reach of any onslaught. MIRROR


Rom 8:37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. AMP

1 JN 5:4 Whatever is born of God is destined to triumph over the world system. Our faith celebrates a victory that is already accomplished!

5 This is the ultimate victory: the certainty that the human Jesus is the divine Son of God;  MIRROR

Hab 3:18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation!   AMP

Rev 21:7 He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son. AMP

Zech 9:16 And the Lord their God will save them on that day as the flock of His people, for they shall be as the [precious] jewels of a crown, lifted high over and shining glitteringly upon His land. AMP

1 COR 9:24 Athletes run a race to win; their aim is to receive the prize not just to compete! This is why I preach, to persuade you and not just to entertain you!  

25 The athlete knows how to draw from focused inner strength in order to win the crown; for them all their effort translates into a mere moment celebrated by a fading wreath of honor. For us to win your faith is of imperishable value!

26 I run with certain victory in my every step! I am not shadow boxing when I preach!

27 I deliberately compare myself to the sacrifice and dedication of a champion athlete; in similar fashion I would pummel my body and subdue it! I would deny myself many things in my pursuit to win your faith so that you will not have any excuse to reject my message. I want you, not your money!  MIRROR

1 PET 5:4 And when the Shepherd-King appears, you will win the victors crown of glory that never fades away.TPT

Jude1:3  Dear friends, I've dropped everything to write you about this life of salvation that we have in common. I have to write insisting begging! that you fight with everything you have in you for this faith entrusted to us as a gift to guard and cherish.  MSG
