Topic: You Are Wired To Overcome [February 8, 2018]
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” 1 John 5:4 (KJV)
Beloved, you are wired to overcome every challenge and whatever the world throws at you. There is no situation that confronts you that you cannot overcome. None! If Christ could overcome it, you also can because as He is so are you. Stop accepting failure and stop saying your environment is not working for you. You are a spirit and you are not limited. There is nothing like fatal failure for the believer. If your God cannot fail, you too cannot fail because you are His image.
You will be surprised how many of us have failed to attain the height that God has ordained for us simply because we have maintained the status quo. You are not a thermometer. You are a thermostat so stop reading the weather. Determine the type of weather you want by yourself. If you want cool weather, be a thermostat. If you want to die with others be a thermometer. Refuse to accept ‘qui sera sera’ (what will be, will be). Refuse to live your life with what will be will be. Challenge the status quo! Any man who wants to amount to anything in life must challenge the status quo.
The challenges of life are stepping stones. Situations will answer to you. Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Abraham against hope believed in hope. Others may fail, but you won’t fail because you believe in hope. Those who win in battles are those who have the victory before the victory.
Whatsoever is born of God does overcome and the victory that overcomes the world is our faith. When you have the victory before the victory, nothing moves you. How do you have the victory before the victory? It is simply by standing on what God said because what God said is the final authority.
