Overcome with the Overcomer

To "overcome the world" and its "endless flow of problems" we need a Savior who has already "overcome the world." John 16:33 To be set free from "earthly shackles and lifted up above circumstances" and the "endless flow of problems" sounds like such a daunting task. (76)
I praise Jesus for His perfect perspective and His peaceful presence.
Eyes on Him...dmc


  1. For me, today’s devo sums up Celebrate Recovery (CR). “Trouble and distress are woven into the very fabric of this perishing world.” Most who come to CR, including myself, are riddled with trouble and distress. As we begin our recovery journeys, learn more about who God is and how He can empower us to be overcomers with "good cheer", were are truly “freed from our earthly shackles and lifted up above our circumstances” that once kept us bound in Satan’s chains. On our recovery journeys, step by step, He shines “His peace into our troubled minds and hearts,” giving us “Joy that no one can take away.” Because of HIM, I celebrate recovery and HIS freedom.

  2. Wow, Carolynn...your are right...what a great CR devo! Don't we just LOVE the hope we've found in Jesus!?

  3. Because Jesus has "overcome the world", I know I can overcome any problem I may have because I know "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength"!

  4. Looking through Jesus' "looking glass" changes our perspective. When we can truly be "above our circumstances" and see them the way Jesus does, it can really take the punch out of our problems! It also helps to let Jesus walk ahead and we follow, instead of us running ahead and then wait for Him to catch up. Walking with Jesus one day at a time...

  5. I was just thinking how we can never live as true overcomers if we are disobedient. We can not expect to be experiencing the blessings of His peace and joy if we are walking in disobedience, yet it's amazing that if we are obedient and submissive to Him, we can experience the fullness of His peace and joy even in the midst of trying circumstances! "As for God, His way is perfect."

  6. "His way is perfect!" What a comfort! What a way to "go!" Loving it!
