Two men can be sitting side by side to each other yet have different natures. Yes, they are both human beings and yes, they are both born of a woman but there is another life higher than the one born of woman and that is born of God. What you are born from limits you. A fish cannot do certain things a lion can do because their bodies are just different. So a man is limited to his nature. There are diseases that are incurable and man is limited there. But if you are born of God, His nature has no limit. Any disease can be swallowed up by his nature. Being born of God is the superior life. There is nothing better than it.
If it were possible to look at the DNA of God’s nature in us, you will see in bold “OVERCOMER.” The problem being faced by the average believer is that they are reluctant to see this truth. There are people who have just gone to the hospital for a checkup, only for the doctor to tell them that they have a very serious disease and there is a look of surprise on their face. Why? They did not have any symptoms and pain to show that such thing is there. But it is there. Same also as believers, we have unlimited power in us yet when a believer the same age as you and the same neighborhood as you heals the sick, you are shocked. Do not be anymore. You can do it too. Your friend that finished from the same school as you with a terrible grade who you know is an idiot. He is now a millionaire and you are shocked as to how it happened? You have the spirit of a billionaire in you. Your spirit is born of God therefore it is unlimited.
Any person born of God can achieve anything in this world because he that is born of God overcomes the world (1 John 5:4). We have to see the truth that we are victorious. In 2 Corinthians 5: 17 it says
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; BEHOLD, all things are become new.
The word there behold means “see.” If you do not see the new things Christ purchased for us then it will look like the old things which Adam’s bad choices gave us. Believers, who are masters of complaining, are not seeing the new things therefore clinging on to an average life that is not for them. Now that you know these things, open your eyes wide, see and receive all that Christ has given you.
If you were at an interview and they ask you personal questions about yourself, you will be able to answer with a high degree of certainty because it is about you. Who knows you more than yourself. For example if they ask you “What is your name?” I believe you know what your name is more than anybody. Your identity is something you have to be sure of more than anything else. Only you can be you right? Please be aware that being victorious is part of your identity. I will repeat this scripture again because it is important to know that we were born into victory.
1 John 5:4 (KJV)
4 FOR WHATSOEVER IS BORN OF GOD OVERCOMETH THE WORLD: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Just as thumb print or signature can be used to show your identity, victory shows that we are the light of the world. Our success cannot and should not be hidden. People easily forget who they are once opposition begins to mount pressure on them. The devil, the world, principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness do not want any believer to live a life of victory. Five kings came up against Joshua and the Lord told him not to be afraid; that he has delivered all these men into his hand.
Joshua 10:8 (KJV)
8 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: FOR I HAVE DELIVERED THEM INTO THINE HAND; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.
In the new covenant, victory is not just in our hands, it is in our spirit. It is on our spiritual DNA. Our victory is not up and down but eternal. That is why when we believe in Jesus we receive eternal life (John 3:16). The God kind of life gives us the God kind of victory. Any believer that his life looks like an utter failure is because they are not aware of the victory that they have in Jesus. There will be experiences of setbacks, attacks, and falling as if all that God said about victory is not true. But God is aware of all these things. That is why he said “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37).
So do not allow the devil to make you conscious of your failures. He does that by making you focus on the problem. My back hurts. I do not have money. My marriage is about to hit the rocks. That is sin consciousness. Rather be conscious of the victory that you have in Christ. You are not trying to get well, you are the healed refusing sickness. You are not trying to get money, you are the wealthy rejecting poverty. You are not trying to patch up your marriage, you have a good marriage. You have a good thing and have obtained favor to reject divorce and separation. Know where you are standing. You are standing in victory. You pray because you have victory. You confess because you have victory. You are not fighting for victory, you are fighting from victory. Imagine a 2 year old fighting an 18 year old. You will probably say “there is no way the 2 year old will win. It is an unfair fight.” We are the 18 year old. In the kingdom of God unfair is called favor. Let this word rest in your heart. You cannot fail. You are the victorious.
