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.
Secondly, if we are Christian, then we share in Christ. We put Him on.
We die with Him, therefore we are also raised with Him.
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.
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...
