“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” –

John 16:33

The scripture has a lot to say about being an overcomer. Jesus Christ encourages His people to remain steadfast through trials.

When we are in that place where we are unsure,second guessing,confused,doubting God desires we build faith and be utterly consumed with the consciousness that we are overcomers. The place of defeat,failure, depression, heartbreak, pain and the likes is never and will never be befitting for a believer or anyone at all, but you see you can find yourself in such a position, how you respond will show what consciousness you have.

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” -Romans 8:37‬‬

Apostle Paul said to the Corinthians to always give thanks to God.

Being an overcomer means there are challenges and obstacles that we have to defeat. “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” -1 John 5:4-5‬‬

John said that the Christian overcomes the world three times in the text.

What is the world?

The world is devil and it’s devices ,the world is sin and its consequences,the world is that which stands against the word of God.The world tries to draw us away from God .The world tries to dilute God’s word in our minds with some fake doctrines.

As believers,when we are being faced with trials and tribulations,we should not be discouraged or downcast, Rejoice for you know you have already overcome!

Daniel was in the Lion’s den and God preserved him,Joseph was in the prison and God rescued him,Jesus was in the tomb and God raised Him. HALLELUJAH!

God  always come through! After He raised Christ from the Grave, we have now a Reciept of our victory of Sin, death, the devil and all is scheme’s.

The power of God is available and through faith we tap into it and it begins to work through us.

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” -1 John‬4:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬
