Let me begin this morning thought by saying; So, the law of the Old Testament was a law of works. But now under the New Covenant, it’s by the law of faith. Under the law, (the Old Testament) their works made them righteous.
Righteousness is not by works but today under The New Covenant, it’s by the law of faith.
Faith must come from the heart…not the head. In other words, faith must be developed. Time develops faith.
To continue to be an over comer one must stay connected with Christ through prayer, studying His Word and applying what He says. Real, true Faith is I know that I know and acting on or applying what I know. It’s a heart issue not a mind over matter issue. When God changes the heart He changes our desires to be the person He has designed us to be, pure and Holy into Him.
A key to overcoming…think before speaking. To overcome situations in life, one must stay focused and in the kingdom work, keeping the Word in the forefront of your heart, speaking only what God says in His Word.
- John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. Just as there is life in the words we speak, our words can also bring death as stated in:
- Proverbs 18:14: “The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear it if the spirit is crushed?”
We are over comers! You and I as believers can overcome sin by using faith-filled words, the power to bind and loose. When the Word is in us it becomes part of us. Words of faith brings God on the scene…Words of fear brings the devil on the scene.
Yes, words are like seeds they will produce a harvest. An over comer will always pray the answer. Yes, pray the solution from God’s Word and speak Words of life. Praying the problem will kill faith-causing fear to abound opening the doorway to the devil.
An over comer will believe… Mark 9:23 “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” If you will believe you will receive.
Another key to being an over comer is to confess what God has said in a particular situation. Find the promise in the Word regarding your situation, speak it forth with your lips; faith believing in your heart and your actions as you watch it become reality in your life.
The seed of your word; growing to maturity, producing the product (or fruit) of your word.
Are you speaking His Word?
An over comer is one that is “fully persuaded” (convinced). Confess that which is in you. For true confession will bring out the bad and the good in you. Confession is agreeing with God.
As you study His Word and confess that which is in you…you will soon realize the truth in speaking the Word of God from your heart…producing pray results, the kind that makes an over comer.
Sin having NO RULE over you…yes, an over comer… like Jesus…one without sin!
The over comer – has Authority! The authority of Christ in Him. The Bible states that the end time believers overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.
The declaration of the blood can bring healing to every part of our body. Rev. 12:11 And they have defeated him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of their testimony. And they were not afraid to die.
- The Word of God,
- the name of Jesus and
- the precious blood of Jesus are three of the spiritual keys to use in spiritual warfare.
Yes – we the Church must begin to use the Authority God gave us and do something.
Let’s begin today, speaking the Word of God, in the Name of Jesus, applying His blood over our situation, families and friends.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
