Did you know you are an overcomer?

Well, you are because Jesus died on the cross and defeated satan. One of my favourite verses out of the King James Version is

1 John 4:4 (KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

I say this verse almost every day to remind myself that I am an overcomer not a victim.

My Boot, satan under it!

Force Field

When I say “greater is he that is in me”, I imagine God surrounding me with a large force field, like in Star Trek (yes I am a Star Trek fan…) or a big bubble for those non Trekie people. Then when I say “than he that is in the world”, I imagine myself stepping on satan with my boot or shoes and swishing him into the ground.

So, Move Forward in 2014 and like Mandisa says in her song “Overcomer”

Don’t quit, don’t give in
You’re an overcomer

Video “Overcomer” by Mandisa

Lyrics

Staring at a stop sign
Watching people drive by
T mac on the radio
Got so much on your mind
Nothing’s really going right
Looking for a ray of hope

Whatever it is you may be going through
I know he’s not gonna let it get the best of you

You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight ’til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when he reminds you
That you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

Everybody’s been down
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Ooh, You’re not alone
Just take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to his promises
He wants you to know

You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight ’til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when he reminds you
That you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

The same man, the great I am
The one who overcame death
Is living inside of you
So just hold tight, fix your eyes
On the one who holds your life
There’s nothing he can’t do
He’s telling you

You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight ’til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when he reminds you
That you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

You’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

See don’t quit, don’t give in
You’re an overcomer

Don’t quit, don’t give in
You’re an overcomer

Don’t quit, don’t give in
You’re an overcomer

You’re an overcomer
