The Overcoming Spirit


For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

John 5:4

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:8. Did you know by exercising your faith in God, you are overcoming the world? Every time you do what is right in the sight of God, you overcome the enemy and make it difficult for him to walk about freely. The Bible says “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them (opposers), for he (God) who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. – 1 John 4:4. Walking in your faith makes you an overcomer because you’re “entering through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate (way of the world) is a broad (popular) road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate (A disciplined life in Christ) and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”- Matthew 7:13-14.

Overcoming The Flesh:

And those who belong to Christ Jesus (Yehsua) have crucified (denied themselves) the flesh with its passions and desires.

Galatians 5:24

As Overcomers in Christ, God is requiring us to overcome and deny ourselves. We must decrease so God can increase in us. The only way to do that is to deny our flesh. Meaning show self-restraint when we are tempted to do things that are against God’s word. When we walk about in the spirit (live in harmony following God’s word and having peace in it) we do so by denying ourselves of anything that will pull us away from God. No good thing comes from the flesh (Romans 7:18) because the flesh is naturally evil and “the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other so that you are not to do whatever you want”. – Galatians 5:17. Overcome by your self-control.

Develop A Sound Mind:

Your spiritual maturity must take the lead to understand how God works and how He speaks. When you discover how to hear your Father’s voice, it will help you overcome many strongholds and traps you’ve struggled with before in the past. It will also help you gain more emotional control over your feelings because” The word of God is a lamp for your feet, a light on your path (Psalms 119:105). The more you know the Word of God, the more you can overcome the matters of this life with wisdom and a sound mind.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern (judge) what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect (according to the word of God).

  • Romans 2:12

God wants your mind to be renewed in him because it will help you overcome the desires and strongholds of the flesh. Those we are in Christ and have the victory, we must maintain their victory by overcoming the temptation to sin. “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9. The more we study until we show ourselves approved (2 Timothy 2:16), the more we can overcome the daily battles of this life, and stay in spiritual peace. “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure (overcome) it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13

Overcome By Joy:

Those who know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28) know that following the word of God is a good thing and comes with protection, restoration, and peace. “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5.

My prayer For You:

Heavenly Father,

I declare and decree the joy of the Lord surrounds me and gives me peace of mind and wisdom. I’m the name of Christ, amen.


The more I choose God, the More I overcome everything that’s trying to hold me back. I am an overcomer in, with, and through Christ.


Keep running well.
