“But despite all this, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us”. Romans 8:37 (TLB)
As a result of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, many believers still see themselves as ordinary, despite the enormous deposits of God in their lives. Many do not have a clear understanding of the finished work of Christ and the benefits that accrued thereof. When Jesus died, He paid in full. In other words, His death did not only deliver to you the gift of salvation, but every other thing you would ever need. It came as a total package.
Everything you would ever need to be all that God has ordained for you is already provided for in Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.’’ The Bible also makes me understand from 1 John 5:4-5, I am a world overcomer, because I am born of God. Maybe you’re wondering how I am born of God. Simple, I am a believer – I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. Therefore, my question to you is, “Are you a believer?” If you are, then begin to see yourself as a world overcomer.
See yourself in your inner man and not in the flesh. See yourself as God sees you – a winner, a victor, an overcomer and not a failure. You are the head and not the tail. Stop seeing your human weaknesses and frailties, but rather see yourself attaining to great heights through Christ. Never get to a point in your Christian experience where you are overwhelmed by challenges. No matter what comes your way, you should always know what to do. Can you imagine Jesus ever getting stuck with challenges and not knowing what to do? Was there any situation in scripture where He became overwhelmed or confused? No, you will never see that in scripture. He knew who He was and what to do at all times, and in every situation. If Jesus was never confused, then you also have no business getting confused. I declare you blessed.
