Many blogs ago, I wrote one titled “Breakfast of Overcomers”. You can scroll down and read it if you haven’t already. It would be great if we could overcome and be done with it, but overcoming is not a one time thing!
It doesn’t matter whether you have overcome some big things or small – it’s all big when you have to overcome it! We’ve all had a lot to overcome with the enemy’s battles throughout our lives. However, here’s the victory – we’re trusting in the Lord. That’s the answer to overcoming.
To overcome doesn’t mean you have overcome all battles and will have no more – oh that it were so! Overcoming isn’t just a one time thing, for the enemy doesn’t try and then give up. Overcoming means that you place your trust in the Lord OVER the enemy’s attacks.
When the enemy attacks again – even in the same area – it doesn’t mean you failed, not at all. It means you overcame so the enemy has to try again. He tries to wear you down so you give up. In this race, it’s not the first one wins, it’s the first one loses! You see, when you give up, it means that you give up on trusting the Lord to help you take care of it.
Many people think that the Lord did not take care of the attack because the same attack comes again. Not so. There are many battles in the war. Each one needs to be overcome. Each one needs to be brought before the Lord and then trust Him. That’s the victory – trusting the Lord in every battle to keep you strong.
People sometimes give up because they think no more battles. They think that if there’s more battles, then it means they failed – or the Lord failed them. That’s exactly what the enemy wants them to think. That’s why he doesn’t give up and keeps attacking. As long as you don’t give up, you’ve overcome. His attacks are only because you’ve won and you are the Lord’s child.
Don’t worry if you keep getting attacked – worry if you don’t! Never give up!
