“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! For I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
As Believers we know that we will face trials and tribulations as our Lord has pointed out. But we know that despite whatever we are facing, He has assured us the victory because He has already overcome the world!
I thought a bit more about what He meant by “For I have overcome the world.” How does this assure my victory in the midst of the storm? I believe that Jesus meant whatever trials and tribulations we will face on this earth, we do not have to worry about how it will turn out. When He died on the cross, everything we would face in life were nailed along with Him. We are VICTORIOUS!
I know that in the midst of the battle and when the heat has been turned up, it can be challenging to feel like a victor. But we are not to be moved based on feelings, or what the circumstances looks like. We are to be moved ONLY by what the promises of God say regarding our circumstances. Declare and decree into the atmosphere everyday, “I am a Victor in the Name of Jesus” and not only will you live above your circumstances, but it will become your reality.
You are a person of destiny, you are an over comer, and you are victorious in the Name of Jesus. Be encouraged!
