Faith to overcome Day 9 January 14 Prayer

13 01 2019

Winning faith – “In God, I have strength beyond the challenge.”

Paul writes in Romans 8:37-39 “…in all this we are more than conquerors, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us,” What does this “more than conquerors” or “overwhelming victory” mean? To be completely and overwhelmingly victorious. To prevail completely.

  • Conquer – to gain the victory        (I did not have the victory, but now I do.)
  • Prevail – to prove superior in strength, to succeed, to win out, strength beyond the challenge.

“In all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us.” Rom 8:37

This means that, with the help of Jesus, you can have strength to outlast your challenge.

Let’s look at a few other verses that carry this truth:

  • I will overcome my enemies because He who is in me is greater than He who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
  • God has not give me a spirit of fear, but of power love and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
  • With God’s help I will do mighty things.  Psalms 60:12
  • I will be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10
  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Winning Faith Statements:

I believe: God is in control. God saved me because He loves me. God will be faithful to complete it.

I believe: I have strength beyond the challenge. I can do all things through Jesus.
