Standing on the Promises of God

How to Encourage Yourself In The LORD

28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Matthew 11:28-29

5b …for He has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can confidently say,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not fear;
what can man do to me?”

Hebrews 13:5b-6

How To Overcome. Encourage Yourself in the LORD

How to Overcome

The only way we can overcome the obstacles and trials of the world is if we stand on the promises of God. We have to quote the Scriptures to build up our spirits. Here are some encouraging Scriptures to remember and quote.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 1:5

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 John 5:4-5

33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

John 16:33

How To Be An Overcomer

How To Overcome. Encourage Yourself in the LORD.

In today’s world, we often hear the phrase, once a… always a… For instance, once a cheater, always a cheater. Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic. The world loves to label us by our past. Our society today has completely and utterly gotten rid of the hope of overcoming. We no longer teach our children that they can overcome any obstacle, but instead, we teach them that any obstacle can overcome them.

But why? The Devil knows that where hope abides, he can be overcome. So, he stomps hope out before it even has a chance to take root in us. He stuffs our heads with lies, convincing us that we will never be able to overcome our past. That we will never conquer our demons, but is that what God says?

Does God not call us more than conquerors? Didn’t Christ die so that we could live? Isn’t the victory ours in Christ Jesus? If we are conquerors and overcomers in Christ Jesus, then how do we overcome sin? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to find the answer in our video, ‘How To Be An Overcomer.’

The Slave

For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Romans 8:3-4

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:1-5; 15

Christ became a slave so that He could make a way for all slaves. We were once slaves to sin, but because Christ overcame sin, we can now overcome sin as well. We can now be more than conquerors through Him.

The Fool

18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:18

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:37-39

54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55
“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”

56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:54-58

Once, we were fools. We once lived our lives as if God didn’t exist because we were once overcome by sin. We lived our lives according to our own flesh and our own desires; in doing so, we said in our hearts that God does not exist. Our actions stem from what is in our heart, and if our heart is pouring out evil, then our heart says that there is no God.

The Unloved Woman

21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 He has now reconciled in His body of flesh by His death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before Him, 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.

Colossians 1:21-23

And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.

Revelation 21:2, 9-11

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages He might show the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:4-7

Once, we were dirty and unloved. Our stench was great before the LORD because of our sin. We were overcome in every aspect of our lives, unable to clean ourselves. No sacrifice was great enough for the LORD to forgive us until Christ came in our very form. He came conquering. He was born with the same weaknesses we were, yet He overcame so that one day we could be washed clean and reconciled to Him.

The Maidservant

17 But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. 19 I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:17-23

For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Titus 3:3-7

We were once slaves to sin, fear, and all acts of unrighteousness, but now, we are slaves to righteousness. We are free from the chains of sin that leads to death. Because of God’s love for us and His redeeming blood we are being transformed into His image. We are no longer slaves to sin, but instead we are children of God Most High. We can overcome all things through Him.
