2 Corinthians 2:14-16
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ,
and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
Wherever our God takes us today, we can rest assured it is into triumph. Regardless of the glaring circumstances, as His children, we know that He causes us to triumph through Christ Jesus. Evil reports may scream in our ears trying to bring discouragement, but as we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, He will always carry us to the victory.
We carry this sweet smell of victory
wherever we go permeating the atmosphere with the knowledge of who He is in our lives. When we walk into dark places, His presence brings illumination chasing away the shadows of evil. Confusion and chaos give way to peace and order in the presence of His sweet smelling aroma.
We are little arks of His glory and we carry Him into every situation we encounter. There is no dark too dark and no evil too evil for our God. He is light and in Him, there is no darkness, no shadow of turning and His light lives in us!
As you walk into the office, classroom, grocery store, or church today, expect the fragrance of His knowledge to change the atmosphere. Expect people to change right before your eyes as His presence pours from you.
Take a deep breath
His fragrance is everywhere!
