THE KEY TO OVERCOMING

­čöŐDevotional Audio Link☞ http://bit.ly/audio1129

Rev 2:7[NET]
7 The one who has an ear had better hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, I will permit him to eat from the tree of life that is in the paradise of God.


Apart from the fact that Fado was attacked by disturbing dreams calculated to weaken his faith and confidence in Christ, he saw real opposition from his family members who were unbelievers. He knew that he needed daily strength from the Lord to overcome the oppositions sent against him from the kingdom of darkness. But he realized that the more he focused on his challenges and tried to overcome them, he lost the battle. But the more he focused on Christ [His finished work and His kingdom], he won.

In today’s Bible text, we see an important phrase Christ repeats to all the other churches: ‘the one who conquers’. This indicates that there would be oppositions that the Christian would have to conquer. These oppositions come from his flesh (manifesting in lust, greed and pride), and from [people in] the world under the control of Satan (manifesting in persecutions, oppositions, temptations, etc.).

God says we are more than conquerors through our Lord Jesus Christ (see Rom 8:37). The key to conquering is abiding in Christ and letting Him rule your life as Lord of your life. Our victory is through Christ and not through our own efforts. You let this happen by allowing Christ’s spirit and word dwell in you richly. Spend more time thinking about Christ and meditating on His word.

We will always conquer if we abide in Christ and keep our gaze and focus constantly on Him.

Go into today remembering that the more you focus on your challenges, the bigger and stronger they will become. But the more you focus on Christ, the bigger and stronger you will become, and you will overcome.
