“You were never created to live depressed. defeated. guilty. condemned. ashamed. or unworthy. You were created to be Victorious.” – Unknown
I love, love, love this quote. Many times, those hardships going on in our lives, lead us to think that “this is what God wants”. WRONG! God did not create you with the intention to make you miserable. He made you, us, so that we can live a joyful and rich life in Him. That is not say, that you will not experience hardships; the Bible clearly states:
“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
Jesus himself went through tough moments during his time on this earth. BUT! He was able to overcome all that tried to stop him from fulfilling the purpose of God in his life. If there is one thing that I have learned about Jesus, is that He taught by example. If He became flesh, and lived in this world with all of its evil desires, and continue to bless the name of God, then we can too. The Bible says in 1 John 5:4
“for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”
Remember, you are an overcomer of this world. Do not allow for wordly things to discourage you. You were created to live a life full of Happiness in God. Believe what His Word says and rebuke and refuse all negativity that the enemy places in front you.
You were created to be VICTORIOUS.
You already have the victory. Don’t let it go!
