Do You Need Victory Over Fear & Defeat?
I feel so defeated.
Opening an email from a friend earlier this week, these words stood out. The ongoing struggles in her marriage left her weary and fearful. On the brink of a divorce she does not want, rejection looms large.
Loneliness within marriage is a heavy ache that doesn’t lift.
Everywhere she looks she sees happy, smiling couples. “Everyone else makes their marriage work, why can’t I?” she asks herself.
My friend questions her every conversation and action with her husband. Nothing seems to bring lasting change.
When describing her marriage over the last year, she writes, “I feel so defeated.”
Declare Victory in Christ
Can you relate to my friend?
Is there an area of your life where you need victory?
Here are situations where you can walk in victory, even if it seems impossible:
- Damaged relationships with children, spouse, or loved ones
- Food addiction and overeating
- Stressful work situations that never let up
- Financial worry
- Drug, alcohol, or pornography use
- Depression and other mental health issues
- Life that seems to lack purpose
Where in your life do you need victory through Christ as your Savior?
Christ died on the cross to take away the punishment of your sins, and God brings lasting victory from painful life situations.
God brings healing when we call to Him in prayer, and He continues to work miracles in this world.
This doesn’t always mean the painful situation will go away, but it does mean God brings freedom and peace.
Best 30 Scriptures About Being Victorious in Jesus (Bible Verses about Winning)
Here are the top Scriptures about victory in the cross of Christ. When you feel weary, worn out, or defeated, use these verses to give you strength and hope.
1. Ephesians 6:10-13 – Put on the whole armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.Ephesians 6:10-13 ESV
Evil forces are all around us, but we have the armor of God. We are called to stand our ground and to fight to the end so that we may be still standing when the day is done. Everything we need for this present time is in these verses.
2. Exodus 14:14 – The Lord will fight for you.
The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.Exodus 14:14
We can be assured that God makes a way out when there is no way. Have you ever found yourself on the other side of problems and realized God was with you the whole time? When you feel overwhelmed, pause, and remember God’s care for you, and then step forward in faith.
3. Revelation 21:1-5 – A new heaven and a new earth
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.Revelation 21:1-5
One day, God will dwell with and comfort His people, and the everlasting city of God will be established. You as a believer have so much to look forward to, even in times of trouble.
4. 1 John 5:4 – Victory to overcome the world
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.1 John 5:4
Every believer is an overcomer and is victorious because they have eternal life in Christ and abundant life now.
5. Romans 8:28 – All things work together for good
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.Romans 8:28
As humans, at times we all suffer. We all experienced hardships, some of them almost unbearable. Those of us who believe in God want to know what God’s relationship is to that suffering. We don’t always understand it, but we trust that He will make all things work together for good.
6. Romans 8:1 – Life in the spirit
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.Romans 8:1
God sees your sin yet declares you “not guilty” because of your faith in Christ’s sacrifice. You are not condemned. Freedom in Jesus is yours.
7. 1 Samuel 17:1 – The battle begins
Now the Philistines gathered their armies for battle…1 Samuel 17:1
In Bible times, during a battle, one side would challenged the other side by calling for a contest between the champion of each side. Goliath was a huge and undefeated warrior. Yet God knew the outcome and that David would have victory, just as He knows the outcome of your battles in life.
8. 1 Samuel 17:32-37 – The Lord protected David
And David said to Saul, “Let no man’s heart fail because of him. Your servant will go and fight with this Philistine. And Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him, for you are but a youth, and he has been a man of war from his youth.” But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock, I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.” And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!”1 Samuel 17:32-37
This is not just a story about a young man fighting a much larger enemy. This Old Testament lesson depicts the conflict of good vs evil. In the end, God wins.
9. 1 Samuel 17:48-50 – With God, David prevailed
When the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet the Philistine. And David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone and slung it and struck the Philistine on his forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground. So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. There was no sword in the hand of David.1 Samuel 17:48-50
The story of David and Goliath teaches us an important lesson about bravery. With faith, David faced Goliath and came out as the winner, even though he was smaller and appeared weaker. Yet David trusted God and had God’s power on his side.
10. Psalm 37:3-9 – Trust and delight in the Lord
Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!
Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.Psalm 37:3-9
Psalm 37 is a wonderful example of how the Lord tells us to live. Living by faith is to live your life based on the character of God and the trustworthiness of his promises.
11. Psalm 119:105 – He leads us
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.Psalm 119:105
Psalm 119 is so encouraging for our walk with God. His scripture and Word provide light for our path so we know where we are going. God’s Word guides and protects us. Not only does God’s Word keep us from sin, but it also gives us safety.
12. James 1:5-6 – He gives us wisdom
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.James 1:5-6
I spend time with journaling and prayer every morning to start my day. One of the prayers I often pray is, “Lord, give me wisdom today. Help me make wise decisions.” I am comforted knowing God promises to give wisdom to those who ask.
13. Daniel 6:3-5 – Daniel became distinguished over all
Then this Daniel became distinguished above all the other high officials and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him. And the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom. Then the high officials and the satraps sought to find a ground for complaint against Daniel with regard to the kingdom, but they could find no ground for complaint or any fault, because he was faithful, and no error or fault was found in him. Then these men said, “We shall not find any ground for complaint against this Daniel unless we find it in connection with the law of his God.”Daniel 6:3-5
Daniel honored God by living without fault and with excellence. When you live with faithfulness and integrity, you are honoring God.
14. Daniel 6:22-23 – The Lord saved Daniel
My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths, and they have not harmed me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no harm.” Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of harm was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.Daniel 6:22-23
David’s love for God was greater than his own life. He trusted in the Lord, and we can use his example to live the same way. God is faithful to His children, and will save and protect you, too.
15. Ezekiel 36:28-30 – God’s will deliver you
You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God. And I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. And I will summon the grain and make it abundant and lay no famine upon you. I will make the fruit of the tree and the increase of the field abundant, that you may never again suffer the disgrace of famine among the nations.Ezekiel 36:28-30
We are God’s people, and He promises to cleanse you and provide for you. The Lord will bless you abundantly. God will provide for your needs.
16. Daniel 3:5-6 – False gods
…that when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, you are to fall down and worship the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. And whoever does not fall down and worship shall immediately be cast into a burning fiery furnace.”Daniel 3:5-6
There are so many temptations and false gods in our world. Our enemy, Satan, makes temptations enticing. Be on guard and learn to recognize and flee from temptation.
17. Daniel 3:28-30 – Blessed be our God
Nebuchadnezzar answered and said, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who has sent his angel and delivered his servants, who trusted in him, and set aside the king’s command, and yielded up their bodies rather than serve and worship any god except their own God. Therefore I make a decree: Any people, nation, or language that speaks anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego shall be torn limb from limb, and their houses laid in ruins, for there is no other god who is able to rescue in this way.” Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the province of Babylon.Daniel 3:28-30
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego provide us with an incredibly example of faith and trust in God. We might not always be rescued from our problems, but we will be rescued from everlasting death. God can rescue us from the fiery furnace if He chooses. No matter what, we can trust that He will do what is best for us.
18. Exodus 14:1-4 – The Lord gets all the glory
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the people of Israel to turn back and encamp in front of Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, in front of Baal-zephon; you shall encamp facing it, by the sea. For Pharaoh will say of the people of Israel, ‘They are wandering in the land; the wilderness has shut them in.’ And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them, and I will get glory over Pharaoh and all his host, and the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord.” And they did so.Exodus 14:1-4
Pharaoh was trusting on Egyptian gods (and himself) to bring him victory, but it was God who had the victory with His deliverance of Israel at the Red Sea.
19. Luke 22:39-45 – Jesus prayed for God’s will
And he came out and went, as was his custom, to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him. And when he came to the place, he said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.Luke 22:39-45
In this passage in Luke 22, we see Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane right before his torture and death. Jesus experienced deep emotion and cried out to His Father for help in prayer.
20. Luke 24:1-9 – Jesus is alive!
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” And they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.Luke 24:1-9
Easter morning is the ultimate victory for Christians. Jesus is alive, and we have eternal hope in Him because He rose from the dead to bring salvation to all who believe in Him. Imagine the amazement of the women who went to the tomb and found it empty. Jesus has won the victory over death.
21. 2 Timothy 1:8-10 – Do not be ashamed of the Gospel
Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,2 Timothy 1:8-10
Part of our calling as Christians is to bravely protect our faith. We have spiritual power because of the Holy Spirit at work within us.
22. Isaiah 25:8-9 – God will swallow up death forever
He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,for the Lord has spoken. It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”Isaiah 25:8-9
God promises to wipe away tears from all of our eyes. In eternal life, we will have no more pain, no more suffering, and no more tears. We have victory over death.
23. 1 Corinthians 15:20-26 – God will destroy death
But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.1 Corinthians 15:20-26
We as believers will be raised and spend eternity in heaven with God. Just as Jesus was raised from the dead, we will be raised with Him.
24. 1 Corinthians 15:55 – Death is no more
Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”1 Corinthians 15:55
What an amazing thought that death will be defeated forever, never to hurt anyone again. Sin brings death, but God has given us victory over death by forgiving our sins because of His grace and Jesus’ sacrifice.
25. 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 – God saves us from giving in to temptation
Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.1 Corinthians 10:12-13
Your temptations might be different from mine, but all of us are tempted to sin. God promises that we will not be tempted beyond our ability to bear it by His power, and He will give us a way of escape. I’ve learned (especially with my food temptations) that I need to be prepared to watch for that way of escape to be there.
26. John 16:31-33 – Jesus Christ has overcome the world
Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”John 16:31-33
In this fallen world, hardship and persecution will come. The good news is that as believers, we have rescue. Jesus reminds us that He has overcome the world.
27. 1 John 1:6-10 – There is no darkness in Him
If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.1 John 1:6-10
When I was in the deepest struggles of binge eating and compulsively overeating, I hid my behavior. I buried wrappers in the trash where no one would see. I drove through fast food and ate it in the car. I tried to keep my behaviors in the darkness. These verses are such an important reminder to me that I need to confess my sins and live in the light. This is where true freedom is.
28. 2 Peter 3:9-10 – God is patient with you
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.2 Peter 3:9-10
This verse from 2 Peter is an important one to help us understand the Lord’s desire for all people to have salvation. None of us knows when the final day of judgement will come, so we need to be prepared by holding tightly to our faith.
29. 1 Peter 3:18 – Jesus suffered so we may come to God
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit…1 Peter 3:18
Jesus suffered during his time on earth so that we could have salvation. Our sinful nature was put to death when Jesus died, and now we have new life in Christ.
30. Revelation 17:14 – You are called, chosen and faithful
They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”Revelation 17:14
This verse from Revelation says that we are called, chosen, and faithful. Isn’t that amazing and humbling? You were chosen to God, and together with Jesus the Lamb, you are a conqueror.
