“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]”John 16:33 AMP
Yeshua (Jesus) for warned us that we would have trials, tribulations, distress and frustration so when we are faced with these adversities they should come as no surprise to us and we as believers should have the confidence that we can have peace in Him even in the midst of adversity.
He told us that He has overcome the world for us, which means that Satan’s power in the world was rendered powerless, because ALL power in heaven and earth has been given to Him by the Father. (Matthew 28:18)
Nothing you face now has the authority to overcome you, KNOW who you are in Christ Jesus. Yeshua said “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” Luke 10:19 Messiah defeated sin, death and the grave and when we are in Him none of these things has power over us.
The victory has already been won, and we as believers in Messiah have to do is walk it out. Christ has overcome it all for us, ever test, every trial and everything else that comes against us. We have the authority to speak to it and put it under our feet because Christ has already overcome it for us. We live in this world but we are not of this world so we should not be living like those in the world. The darkness of this world can not overcome the Light of Christ (John 1:5)
The Enemy is defended and rendered powerless in your life now walk in your Authority in Messiah and live as the overcomer that you are. He told us that we would face adversity but to have courage and confidence because He has over come them and we ought to have great peace in that promise. We are the rock that Christ has build His church on, and the gates of Hades cannot overcome us. God has promised us that once we are born of Him we overcome the world.
CHRIST HAS OVERCOME IT ALL FOR YOU BY HIS BLOOD
“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 the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God”. 1 John 5:4-5
ABBA, let us feel Your Presence in the midst of our trials and tribulations O LORD. Stir our hearts with Your Holy Spirit to always remember and meditate on Your promises, Your lovingkindness, You faithfulness, and Your victory over Satan and death through Messiah. Give us the Shalom (peace) of Yeshua, help us to always remember that He overcame it ALL for us in His Mighty name we pray. Amen and Amen!
In Mashiach (Christ)
