“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith”. 1 John 5:4 (KJV)

The problem with a lot of us is that we do not understand who we are. And so, we walk about as mere mortals. No! You are not ordinary, and you are not a mere mortal. You are a Spirit being! The moment Jesus came into your life, and His spirit came to live inside you, a transformation took place. Therefore, in order to walk in the reality of your new nature, you must believe and accept all that Jesus did for you. This is why programs are put together to teach you about your inheritance in Christ Jesus.

Beloved, you are victorious! You are more than a conqueror! You are a winner all the time! You are a world overcomer! This is the mentality you must have at all time. No matter what comes against you; you are coming out on top because you are a world overcomer.

Henceforth, begin to declare to yourself who you are in Christ. One of the things you must learn to do is to learn how to speak like God. In the book of Genesis 1:2, the bible tells us that the earth was without form, and void, and darkness covered everywhere. But God didn’t go about talking about the darkness. Rather, He declared His victory. He said: “Let there be light”, and light appeared. (Genesis 1:3). This is how we should speak when we are faced with difficulties and challenge. Don’t go about declaring defeat and shame. Speak like a world overcomer because that is who you are.

I declare that every negative situation will bow before you. You will not see shame. Victory is your portion. Your city will answer to you. Your answer is here. You will enjoy the goodness of God. It is your turn to testify.
