We are IN this world but not OF this world. If we remain IN CHRIST, DOING the will of God, FOLLOWING the guidance of the Holy Spirit then we OVERCOME, we REIGN in our circumstances, in spite of our handicaps and our dispositions because we are DOING the purpose of God, we REIGN. But if we go after the world and follow worldly wisdom we will perish because the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
We have to STAY IN CHRIST, OBEY the Holy Spirit and then we will REIGN, we will be FREE, we will not be controlled by this world, by the things of the world, by FEAR and ANXIETY, peer pressure. Those things will not have a hold on us, our circumstances will not affect us because our actions are determined by the Spirit of God IF we STAY IN CHRIST, IF we OBEY Jesus Christ. We have to STAY in Jesus and DO His will then we will overcome. We will overcome the world, we will overcome sin, the desires of the flesh, the fears and anxieties of this world, the despair about all the things that are going on, everything that is happening because the Lord directs the footsteps of His children, those who FOLLOW HIM. We are here for His purpose to DO what He called us to do, to BE VICTORIOUS even in our circumstances.
If we stay IN Jesus, IN CHRIST, IN OBEDIENCE to Him, IN communion with Him, we OVERCOME the world. Are you REIGNING, ENDURING in your circumstances or are your circumstances getting you down? Are you an overcomer because you remain IN Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
