It’s so good to know that Jesus lives in me and that through his death on the cross he has already overcome the enemy. And that makes me more than a conqueror too. Although I do still think back at times my focus now days is so much more on looking forwards and embracing all that God made me to be. We are all overcomers, don’t look back, look forwards…
- Romans 8:37 – But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
- 1 John 2:13 – I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.
- 1 John 4:4 – You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
- 1 John 5:5 – Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
More than a conqueror, I survived, I live, broken is beautiful, my light is not dimmed by the things I have done, my soul not defined by this scarred shell, look in the mirror what do I see, a reflection of what God made me to be, his warrior, a soldier ready for battle, I embrace the struggle cos it makes me stronger, once labelled worthless my new identity “priceless”, a rarity, uniquely placed in this world for a purpose, beloved and forgiven by the risen Lord Jesus who is overseer of the overcomers, you see rock bottom becomes a solid foundation once you’ve gained salvation, I am that new creation, I am the overcomer, from God, one of his children, I am a believer, I have overcome the deceiver, all his lies and deceit are beneath my feet, greater because he that is in me has already won the victory.
