music monday// overcomer

Life is a labyrinth of twists and turns. Things do not always turn out the way we hope they will. But that’s not the time to resign ourselves to disappointment and give up. nope. Jesus overcame the grave. And because of that, His Spirit living inside His followers gives us the same power to overcome whatever setback, tests and trials we face.
overcomer~ mandisa
Staring at a stop sign, watching people drive by
T mac on the radio.
Got so much on your mind,
Nothing’s really going right,
Looking for a ray of hope

Whatever it is you may be going through,
I know He’s not gonna let it get the best of you.

You’re an overcomer,
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You’re not going under
Cause God is holding you right now.
You might be down for a moment,
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when He reminds you,
That you’re an overcomer, you’re an overcomer.

Everybody’s been down,
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Ooh, you’re not alone
Just take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to His promises
He wants you to know

The same Man, the Great I AM
The One who overcame death
He’s living inside of you
So just hold on tight, fix your eyes
On the One who holds your life
There’s nothing He can’t do
He’s telling you

Take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to His promises

So don’t quit, don’t give in, you’re an overcomer.

“ ‘ I (Jesus) have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’ ” John 16:33

“no, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37

“no temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” 1 corinthians 10:13

“God said to moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM…” exodus 3:14
“let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Pioneer and Perfecter of faith. For the joy that was set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Hebrews 12:2-3

“for our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 corinthians 4:17-18

“…and we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:2-5

I know I am not alone in all I’m going through. He’s right here with me, living on the inside of me. my physical eyes may not see, but with the eyes of faith I believe He is here, with His angels concerning me hovering around me. you are not alone in the sickness, heartbreak, disappointment, financial need, the battle to shed off weight, the looooong waiting season…you are not alone. 

He said we will have trouble in this world, remember? But He also said in Him we will have peace, peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of the affliction. I will keep seeking His face in prayer and confess His Word for a breakthrough. Surely, He will keep giving me the strength to carry on, I hope you seek Him too. Do not lose hope.

xoxo, gen delali.
