You will overcome by the Lamb
The above lyrics are from the bridge of Faithful and True, from our first EP self-titled Alabaster Grace.
Yesterday we focused on the Lord telling us to be strong and courageous because He is always with us.
Today, we learn how we can be victorious in the Lord. We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb. The strength is completely His. He has designed our circumstances in such a way that we cannot take credit for any success.
How quick we are to fall into the trap of pride. Thankfully, God has designed us as new creations desiring to give Him full credit for anything good that happens to us.
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
By this we know that we love the children of God: when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not because everyone born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:2-4)
Father, thank you for showing us how to be overcomers in this world. Our testimony is that Jesus Christ is Your Holy Son, the Lamb of God was sent to die in our place and is now reigning as King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Amen.
