Overcome the World! 4
“No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37
Life entails both good and bad. If you ever had emphasized only the exciting part of life and neglected the reality of trials and hard times, then that is a lopsided disposition, and that will make you become unnecessarily offended with faith when you become entangled. You have got to stand on your faith and resist the world.
In John 16:33, Jesus intentionally told his disciples that in this world, you would face trials and tribulations. Though it was not meant to be a negative thing, but rather an opportunity for them to understand the essential things about life, they should prepare their mind to deal with these challenges and avoid giving up early because Christ has prepared victory ahead of them.
Likewise, when you are faced with difficult situations, you must always remember that God has given you the ability to overcome any obstacle. He has given you the ability to overcome anything and everything that comes your way. However, you must be of good cheer and keep on going even when you feel like giving up.
Don’t give up in your toughest hour or situation because there is always a solution. It’s not easy to face such tough times and make it through them without losing faith in God. But if you continue to persevere, then God will reward you for all your efforts and help you achieve your goals. No trial or tribulation will hold you captive because Christ has overcome all obstacles and challenges. “Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” 1 Corinthians 15:57.
1. Thank God for the blessings of life.
2. Holy Spirit gives me the strength to endure any difficulty that may come my way and keep me growing in faith.
3. Psalm 107:9; ask God to satisfy your thirsty soul and let that breakthrough (mention what you need from God) come to pass.
