I am an overcomer.
John 16:33 (KJV)
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Regardless of what happens to me, I know that God has the power to help me to overcome it. Sometimes, without even realizing it, I put Him in a box and limit His power in my mind. When the tidal waves of hardships wash over me, I believe the hopelessness of the situation. For some reason, it is easier to believe that the worst case scenario of my mind, then it is for me to believe that God will work it all out to my benefit.
This verse, however, assures me through each hardship that God will work it all out to my benefit.
Romans 8:28 (KJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
God has helped me so many times. It shames me to admit that I still struggle with trusting Him and believing that He is in control of it all. But when my doubts emerge from my fears, I can revisit previous battles with Him. He has left me speechless and in complete awe of Him so many times.
I love it when my God moves and helps me. Nothing can separate us from Him. God loves us and He wants to help us. We are so blessed to be loved by Him. The hardest battles are the ones that have the most glorious testament of His power.
The God who parted the Red Sea for Moses, slew Goliath for David, protected
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from the fiery furnace, and protected Daniel from the lions is my God, too. My mind cannot even fully comprehend His amazing power. But, I know that He can help me overcome whatever challenge that awaits me. My mind might struggle with that knowledge, but my soul believes in His power.
Through my amazing God, I am an overcomer.
