Victory is in the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ makes two offers to every person.
He offers them eternal life, and He offers them victory over sin. He makes both of these offers on exactly the same basis—that we let Him do it all. Just as there is a right way and a wrong way to seek salvation, so there is a right way and a wrong way to seek victory. The wrong way is to try to do it yourself.
The right way is to let the Lord do it for you. The Lord Jesus said,. If you were working at a job, and the Lord Jesus came to you and said, "I will give you rest," what would you expect Him to do? You would expect Him to take over your job and do it while you rested. This is exactly what He wants to do for you. Perhaps you have been trying to live the victorious life, but failing.

Paul had committed himself completely to the Lord Jesus. If you want the Lord to keep you and to give you victory, you must commit yourself to Him. Is there anything in your life this moment that you have been holding back from the Lord? If so, will you give it to Him right now?
Turn over the past to Him with all its sins and failures. Commit the future to Him with all its unknowns. Commit your loved ones to Him—that young man or young woman you love. Tell God that if they are not His plan for you, you are willing for them to pass out of your life. Tell Him, right now, that you turn over to Him all that you are and all that you have, for time and for eternity.
When you do this, you will have taken the first step toward victory. Will you do it right now?
Next , you must take Christ as your Victory. Taking Christ as your Victory is very much like taking Him as your Saviour. What did you do when you took Christ as your Saviour? You came to Him as a helpless sinner, and you trusted Him to save you. What do you do when you take Christ as your Victory?
