Have you ever struggled with self-worth? Allowed the devil to rob you of your self-esteem, beat you down and wear you out? We all have those days – however, we do have a choice. God’s Word says that we are Overcomers in Christ Jesus. It is a choice to walk in the overcoming power that Jesus blood sacrifice provided for us. He was born, lived a sinless life, died and was resurrected so that we could overcome that devil through His sacrifice and just like Salvation – Overcoming is our choice.
We can still be saved by the blood of Jesus and go to heaven and never know how to overcome. That’s not living the life that God planned for us. We are all going to have trials and tribulation – these are to strengthen our faith – to bring us closer to the Lord – not to defeat us. Jesus defeated the devil at the cross – he is a toothless, defeated foe. He comes only to kill, steal and destroy John 10:10. To draw you away from God’s best for your life. However, the devil cannot take one thing from you that you don’t give him. God always provides a way out, 1 Corinthians 10:13. It’s your choice to choose Him and not your circumstance and you must tell Him that you choose Him in each and every circumstance.
This is the key: In each and every circumstance we must choose the Lord first – speak life into our circumstance first and life will be. God is faithful and when we speak life – life is speaking God’s word into our situation – being positive and death is agreeing with the devils negativity in our situation. God’s plan for us is always good and positive.
Deuteronomy 30:19 (NASB) 19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your [a]descendants,
Proverbs 18:21 (NASB) 21 Death and life are in the [a]power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
I have had the awesome opportunity to spend time with several amazing women who have also struggled with self-worth, been beaten down and worn out. But by the blood of the Lamb of God and declaring and decreeing and agreeing with God’s word and His good plan– they have become the overcomers that Jesus spoke of in Revelation 12:11.
Please join me in this Overcoming Declaration – say this as many times as you need to – allow the Lord to impart Himself – Faith – Joy – Victory and Peace into you so that the devil can never wear you down again. Remember Jesus Christ is Lord and
Declare this out loud:
Lord – I choose You and I declare that I am a child of The Most High God. I am blood bought and paid for. By the blood of Jesus Christ His Son.
The same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in me and He quickens my mortal flesh.
Galatians 4:7 You no longer have to live as a slave because you are a child of God. And since you are His child, God guarantees an inheritance is waiting for you.
1 John 3:9 Everyone who has been born into God’s family avoids sin as a lifestyle because the genes of God’s children come from God Himself. Therefore, a child of God can’t live a life of persistent sin.
1 John 5:1 It’s easy to say “I love God,” but genuine love reflects God’s love. If we belong to God, then we will love each other regardless of how hard love is. Everyone who trusts Jesus as the long-awaited Anointed One is a child of God, and everyone who loves the Father cannot help but love the child fathered by Him.
Revelation 12:11 By the blood of the Lamb and the word of their witnesses, they have become victorious over him, For they did not hold on to their lives, even under threat of death.
1 Corinthians 7:23 The Voice (VOICE) 23 A high price has been paid for your freedom, so don’t devalue God’s investment by becoming a slave to people.
John 14:26 The Voice (VOICE) 26 The Father is sending a great Helper, the Holy Spirit, in My name to teach you everything and to remind you of all I have said to you.
Ephesians 5:17-20 King James Version (KJV)
17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
1 Corinthians 12:3-12 The Voice (VOICE)
3 With that in mind, I want you to understand that no one saying “Jesus is cursed” is operating under God’s Spirit, and no one confessing “Jesus is Lord” can do so without the Holy Spirit’s inspiration.
4 Now there are many kinds of grace gifts, but they are all from the same Spirit. 5 There are many different ways to serve, but they’re all directed by the same Lord. 6 There are many amazing working gifts in the church, but it is the same God who energizes them all in all who have the gifts.
Paul’s description of the works of the Spirit, the Lord (Jesus), and God (the Father) links the three persons together in remarkable ways. Although Paul never articulates the doctrine of the Trinity, what he writes here about the Godhead relationship—their community of persons—becomes the raw materials used by later believers to construct the church’s teaching on the Trinity. In this chapter the apostle emphasizes the agency of the Spirit. For him the Spirit is not just an impersonal force or feeling; He is just as much a person within the Trinity as the Father and the Son. Accordingly, the Spirit chooses where to impart gifts as He works together with the Father and the Son to build up the church.
7 Each believer has received a gift that manifests the Spirit’s power and presence. That gift is given for the good of the whole community. 8 The Spirit gives one person a word of wisdom, but to the next person the same Spirit gives a word of knowledge. 9 Another will receive the gift of faith by the same Spirit, and still another gifts of healing—all from the one Spirit. 10 One person is enabled by the Spirit to perform miracles, another to prophesy, while another is enabled to distinguish those prophetic spirits. The next one speaks in various kinds of unknown languages, while another is able to interpret those languages. 11 One Spirit works all these things in each of them individually as He sees fit.
12 Just as a body is one whole made up of many different parts, and all the different parts comprise the one body, so it is with the Anointed One.
Romans 8:11 The Voice (VOICE) 11 If the Spirit of the One who resurrected Jesus from the dead lives inside of you, then you can be sure that He who raised Him will cast the light of life into your mortal bodies through the life-giving power of the Spirit residing in you.
Romans 8:11 (KJV) 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
John 10:10 The Voice 10 The thief approaches with malicious intent, looking to steal, slaughter, and destroy; I came to give life with joy and abundance.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (NASB) 13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
