I woke up this morning and before I even lifted my head from my pillow I felt defeated. What a way to begin a day.
My head felt heavier. My shoulders slumped already, my thoughts seemed bleak...and my feet weren't even on the floor. And I know I'm not the only one. I cannot tell you how many of my friends lately have sent out calls for prayers because they are overwhelmed by life right now.
And laying there with a blanket of oppression on me, I got a little bit fighting-mad. Not even just a little, but a whole lot. Because as Christians we are not meant to live a defeated life. So today this is going to be a short-n-sweet post. It's not the post I'd planned on, but it's the one I'm writing.
If you too are dealing with that sense of defeat, speak the Word of God over your life today.
What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? No, in all these things we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS through him who loved us. Romans 8:31,37
And then believe it! Christ created you with a purpose and a plan (yes, I say this a lot, but we need to hear it a lot!) and He died to save you from defeat, from brokenness, from sin...He died for you to have abundant life! He died for you to live in victory.
So open your mouth and speak it over your life IN HIS NAME. Because the devil and anyone working for him cannot stand in the presence of even the name of God--so if you can't remember your Scripture? Just start calling on Jesus name.
...that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of those in Heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth...Phillipians 2:10
Someone needs to hear that today. Someone needs to live it. Besides just me:)
I'd love to hear any verses you claim that remind you in Him, you are a conqueror.
