OVERCOMERS

People tend to overlook or disregard overcomers,because they don’t know or understand the trauma ,and drama they had to endure.

Because,the devil don’t like it when God pull you out of your test and it becomes a testimony . Plus you never look like what you have been through.

Because,of His grace,mercy ,love and compassion; or He pulls you out of a mess in order for His message to be told,that He never leaves or forsake His children,and He never gives us more than we can bear.

Isaiah 26:3-4
You will keep him in PERFECT PEACE, whose mind is stayed on You: because he trusts in You.
Trust all of you in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
•As you continue to keep your mind on the Lord His PEACE will give you strength, stability, security and victory.
•Remember in Matthew 14:29-31 Peter walked on water to go Jesus, but when he took his eyes off of Jesus and more importantly he took his MIND off Jesus and put it on the wind (the situation) he began to sink.
•The LORD is with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will tell you “come” like He said to Peter. He will direct your paths.
•Remember those who belong to Christ has His Mind (the Mind of Christ), and in your new mind you think in the fruit of the Spirit. You think Love, Joy, Peace, Goodness, Faithfulness, Self-control… and so on.
•Continue to keep your eyes and your mind on the LORD.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

HOLINESS

You’re Called to be Holy
1 Peter 1:16
Because it is written, (Leviticus Ch: 10, 11, 19, 20, 21, 22), Be all of you HOLY; for I am HOLY.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”. (Romans 12:1‭-‬2 KJV).


•What does God mean when He said for us to be HOLY?
•What is HOLY? Sacred; Consecrated; Sanctified; Reverently dedicated to God.
•As HOLY People of God we are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, we live by Faith in God, and we do all things with the Love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2:9
But all of you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an HOLY nation, an exclusive people; that all of you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
•HOLINESS is the Lord Himself. He is the only One Who is worthy to be called “His Holiness “
•Continue to let the Word of God be the standard for your life. Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

USE THE TONGUE TO ENCOURAGE

James 3:8-10
” But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the embodiment of God. Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be”. Many of our problems are associated with the tongue. We say the wrong things, at the wrong times, at wrong places and to the wrong people. Anger is an enemy to the tongue. When anger is connected to the tongue it spews venom.
Ephesians 4:29 says,Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. Then,Col 4:6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that all of you may know how all of you ought to answer every man.

II Timothy 4:1-5
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:

Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

LET THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK,THROUGH YOU
Matthew 10:19-20…take no thought how or what all of you shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what all of you shall speak.
For it is not all of you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaks in you.
Luke 21:14-15
Settle it therefore in your hearts, NOT to meditate before what all of you shall answer:
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all of your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
•Remember this. God by His Holy Spirit works in you, through you and for you.
++Let Go and Trust God++
Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND

Our Minds Need Protection
+We have the God given ability and responsibility to protect our minds.

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled”. (2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 KJV).


Romans 12:2(a)
And be not conformed to this world: but be all of you transformed by the RENEWING OF YOUR MIND…
1 Corinthians 2:16(b)
…But we have the mind of Christ.
+Remember the Mind of Christ that we have is the same as the Mind of God.
+We have this Mind through the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
+God’s Mind is holy, righteous, powerful, beautiful and unlimited in knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
+Again we have this mind which is the mind of Christ.
+The Word of God is the Filter, and the Holy Spirit is the Monitor for all information before it enters our minds. Why?
Romans 12:2(b)
…that all of you may prove what is that Good, and Acceptable, and Perfect, will of God.
+Without the filter of (God’s Word) and the Monitor of the Holy Spirit our minds will become corrupted.
+This keeps our minds Spiritually and Supernaturally Healthy.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

CRUCIFY YOUR PAST

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”. (Philippians 3:13‭-‬14 KJV)

Romans 6:6-7, 18, 19, 22.
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified (put to death) with him (Christ Jesus), that the body of sin might be destroyed, that going forward we should NOT SERVE SIN.
7 For he that is DEAD is FREED FROM SIN.
18 Being then made FREE FROM SIN, all of you became the SERVANTS of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
19 …even so now yield your members SERVANTS to RIGHTEOUSNESS unto HOLINESS.
22 But now being made free from sin, and become SERVANTS to God, all of you have your FRUIT unto HOLINESS…
•Remember this Servants of righteousness always bear fruit in HOLINESS.
•Without HOLINESS no man will see God (Hebrews 12:14)
•Continue to let the Word of God be the standard for your life. Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

YOUR DIVINE PURPOSE

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good”.(Romans 12:1‭-‬21 KJV).

Do you know that we all need to have a sense of why we are here ? We also need to know that we were created for a purpose. Do you also know that we will never find fulfillment and happiness until we are doing the thing for which we were created. For God won’t move us into the big things He has called us to unless we have been proven faithful in the small things He has given us. Rejoice!! I say rejoice if you are doing what you believe to be the small things right now. Why? God is getting you ready for big things ahead! Do not think for one minute that if you haven’t moved into the purposes God has for you by now that it’s too late. It is NEVER too late. Trust me I know .

Therefore,I can confidently tell you, that if you are still breathing, God has a purpose for you. He has something for you to do NOW. if you do not know what God wants you to do, be an intercessor. Why? Because we are all called to pray for one another. You can start by serving in your church. For we are all called to submit ourselves to a body of believers and help others. When we are faithful in these things, He moves us into others. It is written in 2 Timothy 1:9 that God “has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.” and in Roman 12:6 “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them.” Also in 1 Corinthians 7:7 for “each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that.” So then, “as God has distributed to each one, as The Lord has called each one, so let him walk.”( 1 Corinthians 7:17). I pray that our Father will ” give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling.”(Ephesians 1:17-18). “May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose.” (Psalm 20:4) IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME, , AMEN

NO CONDEMNATION

Ezekiel 3:18-21
When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.

Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul. “Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die; because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.

Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also you will have delivered your soul.”

Christ in you is always greater than all that you will ever go through.
Romans 8:33-35
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
Who is he that condemns?
•The devil will try but he has no power to condemn you. Only God does and God will never condemn you. There is therefore now no condemnation to then who are in Christ Jesus…
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
•No one can, but the devil is dumb enough to try.
• The devil will often try to test you in many different ways to see where he can enter into your life. The devil is all about lying, stealing, killing and destroying.
•But thanks be unto God that Jesus came into our lives that we might have the good life and have it more abundantly.
Romans 8:31
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (No one!)
•The devil is defeated and he can never come out of his defeat.
•Yes! Through the redemptive work of Christ the devil is permanently defeated.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

GOD’S WORD IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH

So Study God’s Word
Hosea 4:6 says,
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge…
Proverb 15:5 puts it this way,
A fool despises (hates) his father’s (GOD) instruction…
•God is our Heavenly Father, and the Bible His Holy Word is His instructions to us.
•When we DO NOT study God’s Word we are indirectly despising, hating and rejecting our Heavenly Father’s instructions.
•Studying the Word of God is not a suggestion or option. It’s a commandment that we obey out of love for the Lord.
Jesus said in John 14:15 If all of you love me, keep my commandments, and in Luke 6:46 He also said “why all of you call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
•You must Continue to make God’s Word your daily study.

Study God’s Word
(Hebrews 5:12-14 AMP)
For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food. For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]!
But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.
•Ignorance to God’s Word is a liability and disadvantageous.
•The Word of God is the manual to live the life of God. As food is to your physical body so is the Word of God to your life, spirit, soul and mind.
•Make God’s Word your daily study.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

BY JESUS’S STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED 

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men”. (1 Corinthians 1:18-25).

LISTEN

God has your back. He never renege on any of His promises. He promised never to leave you or forsake you. Believe in God’s words. He says in Isaiah 41:10 ,

” So do not fear for I am with you. Do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand “.( Psalm 30:2).

“Lord my God, I called to You for help and You healed me.

Isaiah 53:4-5, “Surely He took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered Him punished by God. Stricken by Him and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”

Psalm 41:2-3, “the Lord protects and preserves them they are counted among the blessed in the land; He does not give them over to the desires of their foes.The Lord “sustains” them on their sick bed, and restores them from their bed of illness.”

Psalm 147:3, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. ” My friends repeat this after me and say this every chance you get. “Heal me, Lord and I will be healed; save me Lord and I will be saved, for You are the one I will praise.

” (Jeremiah 17:14). Finally,Our dear Jesus Christ will answer your prayer by saying, “Daughter or son,your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” (Mark 5:34) these are not my words. I am only a vessel carrying His message. So we can surely and confidently say that ,.”by His stripes you are healed blessings and love always.

ULTIMATE POWER

+You are powered and empowered by God.

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”(Luke 10:19‭-‬20 NKJV)

PERFECT EXAMPLE

“But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand. So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live.”

BUT HE SHOOK OFF THE CREATURE INTO THE FIRE AND SUFFERED NO HARM. However, they were expecting that he would swell up or suddenly fall down dead. But after they had looked for a long time and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god.”(Acts 28:3‭-‬6 NKJV).

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.(John 1:12‭-‬13 KJV)


Ephesians 3:20
Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the POWER that works in us…
•Remember the omnipotent, miraculous, supernatural, unlimited and inexhaustible Power of God works in us, through us and for us.
•God the Holy Spirit in us produces the Power that works in us.
• This power is to be exercised and used against sickness, disease, poverty, the devil and demons and the list goes on. For examples on the demonstration of the Power of God please read the Four Gospels and the Book of Acts. You will see the Master (Jesus) in action with His Apostles and Disciples. We are a His Disciples.
•From the very beginning God gave man dominion (authority & Power) over all the earth, Genesis 1:26 & 28.
•Man’s failure to exercise this awesome Power has caused him ALL his troubles, and some of us ignorantly blame God for our troubles.
•For some of us let’s stay on track. For others let’s get back on track, and for all of us let’s live this life of Power that we have of God through our Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
