“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 Jn. 5:4-5
Many times we lose out on what God has in stock for us because we fail to see ourselves the way He sees us. Stop cowering, you are the child of the King of kings and Lord of lords. You are not the child of a king – one of the kings around, no! Your Father is the one in control and because He is in control, He has bequeathed that power to you. Square up your shoulder and walk around with the boldness of an overcomer.
The scripture above makes your position very clear. It is not debatable, it is not an assumption, it is a statement of fact: whatsoever is born of God. The simple question is: are you born again? Now if you are not, then you are not a world overcomer. But the good news is that you can give your life to Him today just where you are by inviting Him into your life. However, if you are born again, you have invited Jesus into your life, then welcome to the company of the world overcomers.
Yes, you may not look like it, things might still be rough, you might still be struggling to make ends meet, but that does not change who you are in Christ. What you need to do is to appropriate His blessings. Gal. 4: 1 says, “.. the heir as long as he is a child differeth nothing from a servant” because he is too young to appropriate the father’s wealth. The same thing happens to Christians who do not know their right. While everything is at their disposal, they carry cup in their hands begging, and the devil is excited. Today, I prophesy over your life that your eyes will be open to see what is available to you in the covenant and much more that you will walk into 2019 victoriously to the glory of God the Father.
