Overcoming or Being Overcome? Be of Good Cheer!

Bring me every bit of drama, horror or tragedy as you see it or believe it to be.....I'll bring you grace to your drama yet I will not allow your drama to speak against God's grace revealed in Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit. Christ is Risen from the dead, does HE own you?

Jesus has overcome the world! Do you believe it? Do you know that God has received you through the gift of HIS son revealed by the and through the Spirit?

"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. John 16:33

HE spoke these things to HIS followers that would be hated for HIS name's sake persecuted in every form, fashion and manner. Yet be of GOOD COURAGE, BE of GOOD CHEER! Amen!

There is ALWAYS a GOSPEL solution! ALWAYS!

Humility Is The Ground of God's Blessing and Favor.....

"Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O LORD. Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. For Your name’s sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great. Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses. He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth. The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net. Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses! Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins." Psalms‬ ‭25‬:‭4-18

‬Perfect love casts out fear, perfect love was demonstrated on the Cross as a gift towards mankind. Grace and mercy were given in a blood offering of a person, Jesus the Christ, where our guilt was pardoned at the cost of God's only Son. HE was condemned so we could be accepted, justified, Great News, Amazing News.

God resists the proud but gives grace (abundant lovingkindness) to the humble. James 4:6

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God" I John 3:1

This above all else, is a humbling revelation. Am I humble, teachable and thankful for God's provision in Christ? An unthankful people is not the character of God's children. Thanksgiving drives out darkness and is the victory march of God's sons and daughters.

A humble place is the only true place of GRACE! God help me, die daily and be filled with thanksgiving for YOUR mighty salvation, YOU have overcome the world and I know this is true, have you overcome me? for if not I will be blue!

"The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly." Proverbs 20:30

Jesus ministry as our great physician, "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound" Isaiah 61:1

Bitterness and unforgiveness is a great wound of our leprosy and sin sick soul which no good works can heal, only the good, great and redemming work of our Savior and touch of God's Spirit bringing oil of gladness where there was wounds of sadness.

"The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.” Do not hide Your face from me; Do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; Do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the LORD will take care of me. Teach me Your way, O LORD, And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies. Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries; For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence. I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!" Psalms‬ ‭27‬‬

What Is Your Deepest Hunger Son or Daughter?

Jesus said unto them, "My meat is to do the will of Him that sent Me and finish His work." John 4:34

Am I being conformed into the image of Christ, then the answer is simple, clear unless I am feasting in the pig pen of my own prodigal understanding.

Difference between pride and humility, complaining and thanksgiving, condemning or redeeming? displays fruit of me justifying myself or know that I have been justified through absolutely no merit of my own?

"This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore, putting away lying, “ Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." ‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭17-32

What Awaits You? Does it Discourage You or Keep You Singing?

"And when they had come to him, he said to them: “You know, from the first day that I came to Asia, in what manner I always lived among you, serving the Lord with all humility, with many tears and trials which happened to me by the plotting of the Jews; how I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house, testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God." Acts‬ ‭20‬:‭18-24‬
