Are You Falling Short?
To overcome means to succeed in dealing with a problem. Are there struggles in your life that you would like to overcome? Do you feel like you’re fighting with all of your might and not making any headway? God never intended for us to live in defeat. There is a way for us to live an overcoming life.
1 John 5:4-5
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
We Overcome By Our Faith
When we receive Jesus into our lives, we become overcomers. What do we overcome? The power of the world, sin, and most importantly death. In fact, we are more than just overcomers; we are victorious in Christ. Our eternal destiny is set, and we are now on the path towards Heaven. For everyone who puts their faith an trust in Jesus, they will overcome. There is no way to have victory over sin or death. We can muster all willpower we have and still fall short. Put your trust in Jesus today.
Living the Overcoming Life
How do we live an overcoming life on a daily basis? By keeping our eyes and mind on the things above, (Col 3:1-4) and our heart full of the Holy Spirit. We walk our daily walk with him as sojourners towards our final destination. We don’t turn to the left or the right but stick to the path. When we stumble, we get back up and keep going. When the enemy attacks we stand firm, not giving up any ground. Day by day we make headway towards our heavenly home. Don’t give up. Pray for strength that only comes from the Lord.
