I Am An Overcomer

As I sat for 20 minutes today and I felt led to read 1 John 5. As I began to read I was stopped on verses 4 & 5. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world….our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the son of God?”

All I saw was I AM AN OVERCOMER!!

Yes one more step in understanding that I am born of God and my victory is that I overcome the world through my faith in Jesus.

You overcome!! We all OVERCOME!!!

I am, you are, we all are children of God. New creations in Christ Jesus. Born of God as He created something out of nothing and breathed life into it and made us!

Do you see? Can you hear with your heart open wide? NOTHING BORN OF GOD CAN BE DEFEATED! It is impossible!

All you, I or any of us need to do is believe in Him, have faith, abide in Him and trust His ways!!

You, me, all of us overcome because of who we are in and not because of what we do. We are born of God.

There is a special place for those who overcome.

Rev 12: 11 “to him who overcomes I will grant to sit with me on my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my father on His throne.”

Our faith is our spiritual armor! We must not be satisfied by the world or in the ways things are but to look beyond it and strive and press towards heaven!!!

No matter what is before us it is IMPOSSIBLE for us to not overcome!!!

YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER!! He spoke it, not me. He created you in that image and NOTHING can change it! NOTHING can defeat what God has ordained for you!!

YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER!
