Good morning. Happy Wednesday to you all!
1 John 5:4 (NKJV)
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our[a] faith.
Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)
6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Raise your hand if you are an overcomer? Did you ever stop to think how you were able to overcome some challenges in life? As a believer, my faith in God has helped me to overcome the world. I’m in the world, but not of the world. Believers we have to remember that we are spiritual beings living in the world, seeking to spread the love of Christ. Don’t walk around trying the mimic the world, the world should want to mimic you. Don’t walk around looking defeated when you are an overcomer!
Faith is a powerful thing. It’s believing in the things that you can’t see. It’s having hope in things that haven’t come to pass yet. Faith is the power you need to overcome the world. When you accept Christ as your Lord an Savior you are now a new creature. You are born of God and will overcome the world. How awesome is it to know that the world can’t conquer you because you are a child of God. I don’t know about you, but that is enough to fall into an instant praise break. Raise your hand if you believe that you are an overcomer? *RAISES BOTH HANDS* I believe it and I even have faith that the things I have yet to face, I will conquer those things too.
Without faith it is impossible to please Him. You can’t say that you are a Christian or an overcomer if you don’t have faith in God. Your faith tells you that God exist. I have never seen God physically but I’ve seen Him manifest blessings in my life. I’ve seen Him keep me from dangers. I’ve seen Him spare my life. I’ve felt His presence when no one else was around. My faith tells me He is real. When you go to God you must believe that He is God. You must have faith that He will reward you when you diligently seek Him.
If you were able to overcome trials in the past, have faith that God will help you overcome the things that are on their way. You are a child of God which means you are an OVERCOMER!!!
Now hold your head up high, give God an undignified praise and scream, “I AM AN OVERCOMER!”
Have a blessed day!
