Throughout the book of Revelation in the letters to the seven churches, over and over Jesus addresses them with " To the one who overcomes I will.".... The book of Hebrews is a book laced throughout with the subject of endurance. Those who are accused of unbelief are referred to as having an evil heart.
Do you have an overcomers heart? A heart full of faith . A heart that is faith-ful??? An overcomers heart is the heart that is faith-ful. One with an overcomers heart has Christ's own heart. And Jesus being victorious over death will not allow us to be anything less than overcomers. His heart will subdue our heart of unbelief. If you have been a Christian for some time and He isn't bringing your heart into subjection to His word, I would question wether you are really a Christian.
Jesus was the ultimate overcomer. He overcame the grave! He will overcome even our own wishes and desires . That's why Gods word says " He will not allow you to be tempted above that which you are able to endure." He will not ALLOW! Not Sometimes He will and sometimes He won't. He is the new Lord of a life committed to Him. A new creature in Christ is just that! A new creature . One with his word written on the heart. No longer under the law but under grace.
- WE HAVE THIS TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS THAT THE EXCELLENCY OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD. I am the wife Of Don and mother of two boys and a stay at home mom. My goal is to follow Jesus in all aspects of life but starting first and foremost in my own home.Titus 2:3-5 I stumble often and get discouraged, but am amazed as I go to my Lord in faith that he looks upon me with compassion, forgiveness and love each and every time. His love for me seems to increase as I keep going back to His throne of grace!! Of course I know His love never changes, but my ability to see His love increases each time He picks me up, dusts me off and says "keep on going Ruth.... I love you!" And because of His great love, I am falling more and more in love with Him each and every day.
