So many times when are consumed by the negativity of this world. Today I want to simply encourage you with the statement “be of good cheer God has overcome the world”. As believers, it is vital that we keep this on the forefront of our minds. Our days are consumed with other’s opinions, the media’s view of what our lives should look like, and our own preconceive notions of how our lives should be better. But in light of ALL OF THAT I want you to STOP……and be of good cheer, God has overcome the world!
When Jesus died for us, He took on each of the above limitations and gave us His view. John 16:33 says “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” We must choose to walk in the peace that Christ gives we walk in purpose and pay close attention to what His word says about us and choose not to pay much attention to the world’s view.
Dig into the Word and find scripture that pertain to your circumstances and begin to believe that that truth is greater than the facts that you see!
Here are a few to get you started:
- You are more than a conqueror through Christ(Romans 8:37)
- You are the righteousness of God. God sees you as right in His sight(2 Corinthians 5:21)
- You have the mind of Christ.(1 Corinthians 2:16)
