For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:4-5 (NKJV)
We are overcomers not because of what we do but because of who we are – sons of God. Overcoming is in our nature.
God is an overcomer – He’s El Elyon – the Most High, the One far above all, the One who rules over all. We are born from above, born of this Most High, Ruler over all, Overcomer God.
Therefore we should always see ourselves living and walking at all times as overcomers in all circumstances.
It is not what is born of flesh and blood that overcomes the world. It is not because of your natural physical family, bloodline, human strengths or mental abilities that you overcome. It’s what is born of God. It’s because you are a child of God – you have His Spirit, life wisdom and power in you.
Train yourself to depend more on the spiritual you than on the mental, physical you.
Instead of dwelling so much on what your natural abilities, education, vocational training, skills, talents and material resources can do, change and start practicing depending mostly on who you’re in Christ, what you have in Him. You’ll find yourself riding high above circumstances and overcoming challenges effortlessly.
For instance you’re going for a job interview, thank God you got all the required qualifications, documents, references and recommendations, you’re dressed right – physically and mentally but don’t focus on that as what will get you the job, appointment or position.
Rely on the higher more powerful resources of your identity and position in God. Tell yourself I’m born of God, I’m favored in him, I find favor in the eyes of my interviewer. The Spirit of God lives in me. He gives me the right answers to every question they ask me. I’m blessed in Christ and because of the blessing of the Lord upon me which makes rich I already got this job.
This is how we activate and walk in the Faith which is the victory that overcomes the world.
