Overcomer – Song Of The Week

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.“- John 10:10

Most of us know exactly how it feels to have our life sought after by the enemy. We know what it’s like to have him steal our joy, peace, etc. We know what it’s like to have him striving to kill and destroy us. And most of us probably also know the feeling of weariness that comes with it…the pressure to give up and quit fighting.

Here’s the thing… Jesus ended that verse with the assurance that He is here to give us life, and that more abundantly! If He is for us, who can be against us? In John 16:33, He says, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” He has overcome the world! Therefore, if He has overcome the world, and He is abiding within us, then we are also overcomers!

We do not have to give up! God’s word says, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.” -2 Corinthians 4:8-9 and verse 17 goes on to say, “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

Don’t you know that makes the devil so mad?! For us to realize that we are overcomers through Christ and that the enemy cannot prevail against us… that is a powerful revelation! Even when we think we can stand anymore, God is carrying us. We are victorious!!

 

Overcomer

Mandisa

Staring at a stop sign
Watching people drive by
T Mac on the radio
Got so much on your mind
Nothing’s really going right
Looking for a ray of hope
Whatever it is you may be going through
I know He’s not gonna let it get the best of you

You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when He reminds You
That you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

Everybody’s been down
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Oh, you’re not alone
Just take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to His promises
He wants You to know

The same Man, the Great I am
The one who overcame death
Is living inside of You
So just hold tight, fix your eyes
On the one who holds your life
There’s nothing He can’t do
He’s telling You

  • I love that song! I have it added to my “Infusion Play list” haha. I love listening to uplifting “God and I can beat this” music during my treatments. I helps me not focus on the blah feeling it gives me!
