Overcoming

 
Transcript

Hi, I’m Jeri Hill with Together In the Harvest. I want to speak today on Revelation 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

God wants us to be an overcomer. He wants us to be drawn so close to Him that we can overcome every single thing in our lives that is not pleasing to Him. He wants us to have victory in our lives. And then, when we get that victory, not only victory, He wants us to share our testimonies with other people and we bring honor and glory to Him and to His power and what He can do in our lives.

We share with people our testimony of what He has brought us out of and what He can deliver us from and we can be an encouragement to somebody else and then, we want to sometimes leave out the end of that scripture. And the end of that scripture is that ‘we love not our lives unto death.’ We aren’t supposed to be so in love with our life. We are supposed to be so committed to God that our lives are laid on the altar and we lay our lives on the altar as a sacrifice, whatever He wants to do through us and if we start pulling, and we we start looking for things that are captivating us, that are keeping us from God, we must remember “we love not our lives unto death”.

Father, I pray that you touch each person, that you put in them a desire to lay their lives on the line, that they will be an overcomer and they will share their testimonies with others, in Jesus Name, Amen.

    Amen! The Spirit of the Lord inhabits the praises of His people so that we may dwell upon the land as a living sacrifice bringing honor, praise & glory to His Son Jesus who died & rose again. The hope eternal for all generation. In Jesus name we pray, Amen! 🙂

  3. Everyone has a story to tell. Our testimony of all that God has done for us can give hope and encouragement to others. Nothing is impossible with Him, and He loves us with an everlasting love. What, in this life, could be better than that? We have the victory and victory comes to all who call upon Him in their darkest moments. We do not have to clean up first, we are called to come just as we are. Praise Him!
