How to Be an Overcomer

The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” - Mark 9:24

This verse is so me. Am I the only one?

I believe. I want to believe. I want to be an overcomer.

I was talking earlier this week with a most precious friend, a fellow sister in suffering. We were talking about wanting to be an overcomer. How do we do it? What does it mean?

Of course, I went to the scripture for the answers. That's always the right place to go, no matter the question.

May I share with you what I found?

First and foremost, I learned that there is only one Overcomer.

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33

Secondly, if we are Christian, then we share in Christ. We put Him on.

And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes. - Galatians 3:37

We die with Him, therefore we are also raised with Him.

For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead. - Colossians 2:12

Because we trusted in the mighty power of God. We still do, don't we?

That's how it comes to be that we, in our groping and fumbling and feeble way, are always and forever, Overcomers.

Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength.. - 1 Corinthians 15:43

Feeling especially weakened today? I pray this message rings right into your heart like the purest of notes. You are mighty. And you are not alone.

Dear God, thank You for the amazing gift of Your Son that you have offered to each of us. Thank You for welcoming us as Overcomers. In Jesus' Name, Amen...

  2. 1. Love the song video. Especially the "word of our testimony" part.
    2. I want to be an overcomer too, but often find myself quoting that scripture, needing to be helped with my unbelief. But it is so cool to watch God refine me and draw me near in the process.

    Thanks for sharing, sweet sister!
