The Overcomer of Discouragement

We have an overcomer at our side.

The Lord, He succeeds in dealing with or gaining control of some problem or difficulty. He’s a Voice and Advocate for us in extreme moments that last longer than we anticipated or when we have lost our footing for a minute and just need the security of His presence.

Nine years ago, Mandisa came out with a song: “Overcomer.” I was driving on a road that had a lot of hills and I was thinking through our lives of ups and downs as I saw my three handsome and active boys in the back seat. I started singing this song to the top of my lungs and with everything in me as it played on the radio. We started laughing and having a good time together on that long road going where we were headed together next. No matter how discouraged I get at times, if I put that song on, I always sing along and snap my fingers to it! That day, I gave them a message that there’s an Overcomer by our sides!! There’s no doubt that Braxton, Bryson, and Bentley each felt the sunshine that came busting into that car to break up the monotony of just going from one place to another place.

If “you’ve got so much on your mind, nothing’s really going right, and you’re looking for a ray of hope” maybe you should put that song on to let Mandisa’s words minister an incredible message for you. What is it that is deafening to your spirit? What are you going through?

“I know He’s not gonna let it get the best of you! You’re not going under because God is holding You right now. You might be down for a moment and feeling like it’s hopeless but that’s when He’s going to remind you that you are an overcomer” too. “Hang on to His promises and stay in the fight to the final round. Hold tight and fix your eyes on the One that holds your life. There’s nothing that He can’t do! So don’t quit; don’t give in…”

Courage Question: Are you looking for a ray of hope? “Everybody’s been down, hit the bottom, hit the ground. You’re not alone.”

Courage Quote: “Whatever it is you’re going through, stay in the fight. The same Man, the Great I Am, the One who overcame death- is living inside of you! He’s telling you that you’re an overcomer.”
