Tuesday Night Quote

You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, an expect to win.  ≈ Zig Ziglar

Praise is a Weapon

Gospel singer Marvin Sapp sings a song on his “I Win” CD entitled “Teach My Hands to War. Marvin says praise is a weapon; it’s  the weapon that will help us win.  The saying is, when praises go up blessings come down. So let’s get our praise on and use our weapon and lift up holy hands in praise to the Lord.

 

Psalm 150:1-6 (Amplified)

“Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in the heavens of His power! Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness! Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with lute and harp! Praise Him with tambourine and [single or group] dance; praise Him with stringed and wind instruments or flutes! Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)”

30 Days Of…Day 21 – “Overcomer”

I can hardly believe that I’m already 21 days into my 30-day challenge in the blogging arena. I am actually liking this writing thing. So anyway, today my topic came from me doing what I do everyday on my drive home from work. If I am not listening to a bible study lesson on the radio, then I’m listening to one of my gospel music CD’s. In one of the songs I heard the word overcomer and immediately I had my post for today.

So what does it mean to overcome? It means to conquer, to gain the victory, and to win. What are we conquering? John 16:33 (NIV) says, “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.” This scripture suggest that we will have adversity, trials, troubles, situations, but we should not be dismayed because Christ has overcome the world and we will be winners in the end.

 

 

“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17 – NKJV)

 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31 – NKJV)

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” (Romans 8:35 – NKJV)

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Romans 8:37 – NKJV)

 “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57 – NKJV)

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4 – NKJV)

 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” (1 John 5:4 – NKJV)

With God all things are possible!
