Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)

Can you not feel the urging, prompting, pulling 'n pushing of the Holy Spirit leading you to victory and overcoming whatever is put in your way?

And ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you. (Acts 1:8)

Can you not hear God telling you to be strong and use the power given you from the Holy Ghost during good times and troubling times. Can't you hear Him encouraging you to count it all joy?

And the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. (Ephesians 6:17)

Can you not hear God saying to you, "Use me." He has taken us by the hand, giving us such love, providing the blueprint to be OVERCOMERS not just GOING THROUGHERS.

The trials and tribulations are going to come, just like breathing requires inhaling and exhaling. They are a given but He's told us to be of good cheer for HE has OVERCOME the world! (John 16:33)

I've heard enough of "I'm going through" - everybody is! I'd like to hear, I'm going to . . . the throne of Grace and I'm going to . . . my prayer closet and I'm going to . . . see Jesus today 'cause I'm going to . . . help somebody who's having challenges, too.

This "I'm going through" is the one where they act like they have an exclusive on "going through." There are people who have been told they're going through the last stages of their lives! That's going through BUT these same scriptures applies to them, as well.

We must build our spiritual muscles of faith, trust, and belief through a more personal relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
