The Blueprint to Overcome

In our daily life, we are beset by many challenges. However, some challenges seem like they never seem to go away. Long term struggles such as addictions, financial struggles, marital issues, or problems with your children. These problems take a little more than a quick 5 minute prayer in the morning.

So how do you overcome these struggles? Is there a surefire way to have victory over any battle? Of course there is. The Bible is a roadmap to victory. Many of us know the scripture that declares that we are more than conquerors in Christ, but yet where is our victory?

The answer is found in Revelation .

And they overcome him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death -Revelation 12:11

So how do you overcome?

1. The blood of Jesus

2. The Word of your testimony

The Blood of Jesus has already paid the price for your victory. I recently watched the movie The Passion of the Christ again last night after many years. As you watch that movie and re-enact in your mind what Jesus actually went through so we can be free, you will not take his shed blood lightly. His blood was shed 2,000 years ago and is crying out for you to redeem what it has paid for.

The blood of Jesus vindicates you and justifies you. It gives you the right to come boldly before the throne of God. As you are covered in the blood of Jesus, you are no longer a mere human going about your daily activities. The blood has made you a rightful heir and son of the Most High God. Can you imagine the Son of God struggling with whatever problem that you might be struggling with? Well that is how heaven views your insignificant problem.

Once you realize the power of the blood of Jesus, that is still not enough. Millions of Christians everyday have been redeemed through the blood, yet still struggle with the problems of the world. Just because you know about the blood, and know that Jesus died for you is not enough. So what else is needed? Step 2. The Word of Your testimony.

Your words activate what Jesus paid for.  More specifically, speaking the Word of God, activates the power of the shed blood of Jesus. It’s no different than a house being pre-wired for Wifi Internet. Even though the house has access to the Internet, the only way you will ever be able to be online is if you turn on your computer and use it. In the same way, you have been pre-wired for victory.  Every thing about you screams, more than a conqueror! Yet you must actively and consistently proclaim the victorious Word of God out of your mouth to partake in this victory.

Are you struggling with something today?  The Bible has words of wisdom and insight that address any issue you can think of. Find a scripture that addresses what you are currently going through. But don’t stop there. Once you locate that scripture, meditate on that scripture until it becomes real to you. What do I mean by meditate. Say it over and over again in your mind. Picture it in your mind.  Mull it over. As it becomes almost tangible to you, now begin to confess it out of your mouth.  Joshua 1:8 says to meditate on the Word day and night, that you may observe to do what is written. Then you will make your way prosperous and have good success.

So to recap. The Blood of Jesus has set you free from every problem, struggle, and tribulation. Yet just knowing this will not guarantee your victory.  Next you must locate a scripture that corresponds to what problem you are currently facing. Meditate on this scripture and confess it out of your mouth, until it becomes alive to you.

Through your testimony, you have just ignited the blood of Jesus; and nothing shall by any means stop you!
