You Can; You Will Overcome!

Daily Word for Saturday, May 9, 2015

SpiritualityGod doesn’t give us overcoming lives; He enables us to overcome, through Christ, in life. In life there will be many challenges.

The way we process difficulties in life, in many instances, will be those defining moments that can determine not only the outcome in our current context but the overall quality of our lives.

There is a sense in which challenges offer believers an opportunity to reinforce who we are in Christ. This thinking when practiced becomes the lens through which we view all of our lives.

Imagine viewing our lives through this lens! Colossians 3:3b reads, “Your life is hidden in Christ with God.”

When I look through this lens, I feel loved, safe, capable and complete.

Philippians 4:13 reads, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Romans 8:37-39 reads, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Take a look and continue viewing until you see who and what you really are. Enjoy the view!
