As we make effort to move forward and overcome coronavirus and the COVID-19 pandemic, what situation or circumstances in your life do you need to overcome? God’s word says in 1 John 5:4; for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Jesus goes on to say “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
7 steps to become an overcomer
Step 1- Hebrews 4:16; So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Step 2 – James 4:10; Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
Step 3 – Matthew 5:3; God bless those who are poor and realize our need for him…
Step 4 – Philippians 4:6; Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Step 5 – James 1:2-7; Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
Step 6 – John 10:27; My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me.1 Samuel 15:22 …, to obey is better than sacrifice.
Step 7 – Isaiah 40:31; But they that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up on wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, they shall walk, and not faint.
