To overcome is to get the better of in a struggle or conflict. It also means to conquer. And the Christian life is full of overcoming moments and we must embrace those moments because they come to increase our faith and bring us into a closer relationship with God. (1 John 4:4) says “you are of God little children and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” Thus, for the Christian, God has already declared you a winner, He has already declared you to be the victor for he spoke in past tense when he said “ye are of God little children and HAVE OVERCOME. However, do you believe you have already overcome even before the battle has begun? This is where our faith must arise. Only believe!
God Bless You
