You the Overcomer!

One of the most powerful truths and experiences available to the believer is that of being assured of victory over every obstacle. You may lose a battle now and then but you can win the war!

John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]”

The Amplified Bible here reads here that Jesus has overcome the world and deprived it of the power to harm you and conquered it for you! Nothing can be clearer. No matter how bad the situation looks, you can emerge victorious!

Only believe.
There are a few very simple conditions. First, you must believe that this is God’s word to you and to everyone else. Believing that God is true to His word is simply called “faith”. Your faith in God is the substance of your ultimate victory over every situation.
1 John 5:4
“For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith.”


The battle belongs to the Lord.
Your faith or belief is what accomplishes God's victory on your behalf. The battle to win is not your job. Yes. the battle belongs to the Lord.

2 Chronicles 20:17 (NLT)
“But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory.”

The idea and appearance that you are the underdog and are going to lose in the situation that confronts you is nothing but a deception from Satan. If you buy into it by agreeing with the appearance of defeat, you will lose. Never ever admit defeat, only victory! You don’t have to know just how God will do it, and he does not have to inform you of His methods. That means if you rely on you having to understand it, you will not make it.

1 John 4:4
“Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them because He who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.”

God will do it for you. I fact, He has already done it for you. Apart from believing God, start praising Him for His victory on your behalf in every situation.

The size of the problem does not matter!
The size and nature of the problem confronting you does not determine the outcome, your simple trust in God’s willingness and ability does.

Mark 16:18 Amplified Bible (AMP)
“They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well.”

You don’t need a lot of faith, only very little. In fact what you already have is more than enough!

Matthew 17:20
“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Revelation 3:21
“He who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant him to sit beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame (was victorious) and sat down beside My Father on His throne.”
