Created to Overcome

| 1:26 MIN READ |

Winning is something we enjoy. It’s a great feeling to conquer an obstacle, overcome a challenge or beat back the odds. God made you to win!

Becoming a winner is a process. It requires skills, focus and intentional effort. In the spiritual realm, becoming an overcomer — a winner — is critical to finding and fulfilling your God-designed purpose.

This principle goes back to the beginning of time. When God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, He gave them the responsibility to rule over it. God commanded them to conquer their environment. Look at God’s instructions to them in Genesis 1:28 (NIV) “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’” God instructed Adam and Eve to take control of their circumstances. His plan for them was never basic survival, it was success! He created them to overcome. He designed them to be winners.

To fulfill God’s purpose, we all have things we need to conquer. It may be sinful habits, destructive thoughts, emotional pain or unhealthy life patterns. As these enemies are conquered, we find greater joy and become more fruitful. Our victories also encourage others to rise up and overcome!

What things do you need to conquer in your life? Go for it, with God’s grace and power! God created you to overcome!
