Overcomers Overcome

“For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.”(1 John 5:4)

 Overcome- Succeed in dealing with (a problem or difficulty). prevail

At times we may have to deal with a problem that we think we will never be able to prevail against but we have a built-in mechanism in us to overcome any adversity we face. God has made us overcomers therefore we should walk in the victory that Christ has paid for.

To be overcomers does not mean we attain accomplishments, recognition, popularity, acceptance or prestige in the world or in a church. To be overcomers, we must to hear the Word, obey it and endure to the end, despite suffering, shame, rejection and disappointments.

 “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” (Rev 12:11).

Beloved, through Christ we are overcomers, so let us persevere regardless of the predicaments we face. Jesus promised us:-“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. “John 16:33
