For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. - Hebrews 4:12


Blog - We're Victors, Not Victims

Romans 8:28-39 (NKJV): And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter."

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

ACCORDING to GOD, we're VICTORS, not victims. So, be strong and courageous; be not afraid, for GOD does not change, and JESUS CHRIST is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Trust GOD, meditate on His Word, and believe this: GOD is with us wherever we go and whatever we're going through. He will never leave us or forsake us, because whether we live or die, we live or die unto the Lord, and whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord; we're His, and we're MORE THAN CONQUERORS through Him who loved us. We're not alone, and we're not forsaken, for GOD's WORD declares this: We may be hard-pressed on every side yet we're not crushed; we may be perplexed, but we're not in despair; we may be persecuted, but we're not abandoned or forsaken; and we may be struck down, but we're not destroyed. We're OVERCOMERS through Him, CHRIST JESUS, and overcomers are not victims; they're VICTORS.
