January 25: A Testing Time

Let me start today’s thought by stating; we will all go through a time of testing, trials and tribulations (troubles) in this life but be assured that there will be also a time of strengthening. Be strong in the faith, don’t waiver; for our faith is built upon a firm foundation of Christ Jesus, and He never fails.

The end results will be the finished product; a testimony, one who overcame obstacles just like Jesus, an overcomer. Romans 8:17, And since we are his children, we will share his treasures—for everything God gives to his Son, Christ, is ours, too. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering (NLT).

God is with us as believers, waiting for us to take authority over Satan in our lives, when He tries to come against us in every situation as directed by the Holy Spirit. It is within the reach of every believer to become an overcomer, over Satan and his deceiving ways. We must use the authority of Christ in us, this God given authority in the believer, as the Holy Spirit directs, leads and guides us. Satan has no rule over the believer. Make your stand and take authority over Satan in Jesus’ name.

As stated in Colossians 1:13, “For he has rescued us from the one who rules in the kingdom of darkness, and he has brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son (NLT).

We were brought into His Kingdom for a purpose, to live a life in Jesus, an over comer; overcoming tribulations and becoming a living testimony sharing the Good News…Mark 16:15-18, And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. These signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick and heal them (NLT).

We can and will be an overcomer, defeating Satan in ALL areas of our life! Through the blood of the Lamb, we are an overcomer, yes, victorious!
