Power to Overcome


In Christ, we find faith and strength. The Lord lived in subjection to the very things He created in order for us to overcome pain on earth.

This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4, NIV

Praise God for the glorious dawn of His story! He is separate from and greater than Creation, yet He chose to humble Himself and become part of it when He took on the form of a man. And as Man, the One Who is greater than Creation submitted Himself to it—to the heat of the day, the cold of the night, the storms on the sea.

On occasion, His deity was revealed when He calmed the sea or cleansed the leper or gave sight to the blind or raised the dead, but for the most part of thirty-three years, He lived in subjection to the very things He had created. Why? So that you and I might have the power, through faith in Him, to overcome the empty, broken, sinful, bitter, meaningless, lonely, helpless, fearful, weak, religious, and hopeless world of which we are a part.
