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,
Thank you so very much for sharing! This word, which obviously made an impact upon your life, was for me, as well! Praise God!! He’s moving… get ready!!!!!!!
I’m glad! God is such a good God and He always moves when we need Him to 🙂
Love this!! What a great perspective. Defeat and surrender are very different things aren’t they…
yes! 🙂 if we give it our best in Him, we won’t go down! 🙂 too bad we too often think “I’m going to go down anyhow so might as well stop now before I get hurt” Gotta just give it a try and see that God is faithful! 🙂
