Overcome means victory!

It’s Friday and somebody’s faith is flickering like a bad light bulb. Maybe you’ve faced so much over the past month/year and still haven’t found your footing. Maybe it’s sickness or death that has rocked your life. Maybe it’s the falling membership of the church or a dip in sales for your business. Maybe the assignment God has you in is hurting more than you thought. Maybe it’s depression or anxiety. Maybe it’s fear.

Whatever it is … here’s what I know for fact. TROUBLE DOESN’T LAST ALWAYS, but just like the light bulb, it might be time to change it.

Change what, Pastor Marcy? The way you’ve been seeing things and yourself.

See, you’ve been focused on the pain, the hurt, the things you’ve been forced into experiencing, etc. But what if you saw yourself healed and believed it? What if you see yourself victorious even before the battle is over? What if you see yourself happy, even if it’s still dark in your life right now? What if you saw life beyond where you are and trusted God?

Bible says in John 16:33, “Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” Why is this good news? Because overcome in this scripture means “to get the victory.”

I don’t know what you’re facing or about to go through, but will you fight? Will you try again? Will you get up? Will you trust God and yourself? Will you believe it? Will you see yourself victorious? Because no matter what it is, you will get the victory. Even if it doesn’t look like the win you were expecting.

  1. Thank you. I needed that soo much. My life is not what I thought it would be and sometimes the dissapointment is too much.

    1. Don’t allow the disappointment to distract you from continually to try. Ms. Valerie, I don’t know what you’re dealing with, but I’m praying your faith doesn’t fail.
