THE WINNING LIFE
HABAKKUK 3:17-19 1 JOHN 5:4- 5
INTRO: having celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ, need to know the significance of this act of God that redeemed us fro the bondage, and power of sin.
You who have Christ as your Savior, have victory over ever situation that arises in your life…..we are new born, blood bought, and have overcome the world.. 1 John 5:4-5 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Overcomers are holy, righteous, confident, fearless we believe God!!! WHAT IS FAITH? Faith acts like it’s so even when it’s not so, so that it might be so!
Faith is realization, Evidence is confidence…Phil. 4:13 with the anointed one and His anointing, there is nothing that’s impossible for me!!!... 2 Corinthians 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
The word of God is our daily bread…MUS T STAY DAILY IN THIS WORD!!!... John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
PREPERATION: Isaiah 50:7 For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
COL. 3:16, The word of the Lord is a strong tower when we face fiery trials…1 Peter 5:10, Nahum 1:7, 2 Timothy 2:19
Meditate on the word of the Lord: has three components;
Verbalization…Psalm 19:14, Mark 11:22-23..Matthew 17:20
Visualization: (image) Hebrews 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Internalization; (emotions) set yourself to endure short term discomforts….Habakkuk 3:17-19 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.19 The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.
