33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
1 John 4:4(NIV)
4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
1 John 5 (NIV)
Faith in the Incarnate Son of God
“5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three that testify: 8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. 9 We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
Jesus overcame the world and because He overcame, in Him we too can overcome. The enemy has no power over the ones who are in Jesus. The enemy will try to attack us but he has no power in Jude 1 it says that the demons are in chains. They are defeated and we are protected by the precious blood of Jesus and anything that is not of God does not belong here and it must leave in Jesus Name. We are protected, we are forgiven, we are loved and in Jesus Name we overcome. We serve a powerful God whom we constantly put human limits on, but God is saying enough. Enough doubt and enough fear. God has a great work He wants to fulfill on this earth and in His people and nothing is going to stop Him. God can do all things and there is no power above Him and no power beside Him, He rules and reigns forever and ever.
