At church tonight my pastor was on, as I like to put it, ffiiiiyyyyaaaa!!! haa haa 🙂 I’m grateful for a good pastor and his awesome family. Having been around to so many different churches and one who seeks out extra sermons, I have definitely enjoyed many and… not so much enjoyed others LOL Tonight however, my pastor preached on the idea that We Cannot be Defeated! The concept is powerful-
“There is no such thing as a defeated Christian. We are not defeated by the world- but we can surrender to the world.”
Let that sink in. Let the truth of that statement wash over you- you are more than a conqueror in Christ which means the ONLY way you can be “defeated” is if you give up! So don’t! 🙂
Don’t let the devil tell you that you can’t make it, that you’re not good enough, not strong enough, not pure enough, that your past means you aren’t qualified enough- JESUS PAID FOR IT ALL!
He is your strength.
He is your purity
He is your goodness
He make you qualified!
So just go forth, live this life, and know that in Him, you will NEVER be defeated!
One of my other favorite lines:
Stop thinking I should give up and start thinking I should get up.
Blessed in Him in so many ways,
