To live as an over-comer we must first understand and believe that we have already overcome. 1John 5:4 says, “ For whatsoever is born of God over-cometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith.”

Now, we know that faith cometh by hearing the word of God. So to live as an over-comer it is important that we hear what the Lord has already said concerning our victory. Jesus said. “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer I have over-come the world (John 16:33).

What temptations, test or trials face you today?

Where do these temptations come from?

How can I successfully pass every test and over-come ever trial?

Temptation defined:
• To entice to commit an unwise or immoral act.

1Corinthians 10:13 (AMP)
For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

God is not the author of our temptations; He is our Deliverer, our Redeemer.
