Overcome

5 Dec

So much for writing something every day. Haha.

I just watched that movie “The Number 23” on tv. Ive seen it before, so I was only half-watching it while doing other things. But towards the end of the movie, there is a part where the main character (Jim Carrey) finds out that he has done some horrible things, and he cant believe his wife when she tells him that she loves him. He cant understand. She couldnt possibly love him, knowing all the things he has done, knowing what a horrible person he is, it cant be true, it cant be possible.

And I think thats the same problem a lot of people have today. They think that there is NO way God could love them, theres no way they are even loveable after all the things they have done. They dont believe that God TRULY loves them, because they cant even love themselves. They have believed the lies that they are worthless, hold no value, dont deserve to be loved. Once you realize how messed up you really are, its hard to believe that love is still possible for you.

But it is.

God is love. And as followers of Jesus, we are to live in a way that shows that love to people. Our story is one of love, redemption, grace, mercy, peace, freedom… etc. We should be living like it. Dont let fear hold you back. Press on. Fight the good fight. Once you get to the point where you are staring your selfish, sinful self in the face, you can find hope in knowing that your story doesnt end there. We are overcomers in Christ.

OVERCOMERS.

I 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)

 

This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. (I John 5:3-5)

 

God is Jehovah Nissi. God of Victory. Dont put Him in a box. You were meant for amazing things.
