Yesterday I was thinking about some things and all of a sudden this phrase popped into my mind. We often have this thought that just because we’re Christians then life should be easy and we should never have to face any kind of trial. But that’s not true. Life can be difficult sometimes. It can feel as if we’ve been handed a lot of doo doo. But the good news is that you are an overcoming through Christ Jesus!
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Even though you may go through times where you feel there is more doo doo than you can bear, God has given you the victory. You are on the winning team!! You don’t have to wonder whose going to win this battle. You are because Jesus already did.
We have to realize that our testimony is a powerful thing. Though you may go through trials God can turn that mess into a powerful testimony for His glory. We can turn the doo doo of life into fertilizer by using our mouth to proclaim the victory. Fertilizer helps plants grow. The people around you will grow and learn from your testimony. Don’t be afraid to open your mouth when you know you must. Allow God to use what you have walked through into fertilizer for others. Allow God to use your testimony to make the devil regret he even tried to throw doo doo your way!
Revelation 12:11 (KJV)11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Remember that if you have Christ Jesus, you are the victor!!! You are not on the defensive team, you have the “ball”! Don’t the devil trick you into thinking anything other than the truth. You are a Kings kid with a powerful testimony! Go and fertilize some plans today, and remember God loves you!
