Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. – Romans 8:37

We all want to be called overcomers, but we do not want any struggles to overcome.

We all want to be conquerors, but we do not want any battles to conquer.

How will you win any race or competition if you do not participate in it?

Yes, life has a way of throwing the one attack after another, and sometimes we just come out of a battle when another one appears, but I know for a fact that through Jesus one will overcome whatever is thrown one’s way.

You might be sitting there and questioning your relationship with God, because everything seems to be going wrong in your life, but allow me to encourage you: The reason why God allows all these things to come your way, is because He trusts you to overcome it.

Like a general who sends his best soldiers in front, God sends his most trusted and equipped soldiers to overcome all these challenges.

God will never allow something to attack you, knowing you will not be able to bear it.

He sees you as His champion. So even when all hell is breaking loose in your life, keep the faith and you will be able to conquer it.

I know how it is to be praying for other people to get healed while your own family and friends are sick. I know how it is to preach to other people to repent while my own family and friends need repentance. I know how it feels to be encou­raging people while I need encouragement myself.

One thing I always tell myself is: “Tebz, you are more than a conqueror.”

It does not matter what comes my way, I know through Jesus Christ I will overcome.

It might be painful, it might be embarrassing, but I will overcome.

We tend to want things the easy way all the time.

God will never allow something to happen in your life which He knows you cannot carry.

God trusts us so much that He allows certain attacks to come our way because He knows we will come out victorious.

No financial problems, no sickness, no divorce, no court case, no exam paper, no retrenchment, nothing will overpower you, because your are God’s very own bulldozer.

Everything that is put in front of you, shall be demolished in the migthy name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Allow your faith to be tested. Like I always say: A faith that has never been tested cannot be trusted.

So take your challenges head-on and trust upon the Lord, and you will see how easy it is to be that conqueror, that victor, that winner, that overcomer in the Lord.
