I Have Overcome
When you really have no words to say. When you get so overwhelmed by the power of darkness all you can do is cry. When you wonder how something so dead can have such a strong hold on people’s lives…
My answer is this – It’s not dead. Because we look at darkness as dead but it BRINGS death. The problem with Christians is we say everything around us is dead and we are the only ones alive. No. What we have inside of us brings LIFE – Jesus Christ. The Devil is going around seeking whom he may devour. He isn’t dead. He isn’t playing games. He is not sitting still. He’s very active. He’s the prince and power of this air. He plays with peoples minds for keeps. He blinds them.
Buddha is an idol made of gold that man has made but it goes much deeper than that. This is a war…a spiritual warfare that’s very much alive and wicked. He covers it with good morals, riches, and prosperity inviting them to come into his darkness.
I never want to get used to seeing these idols and not be broken. I choke up and can’t even pray out loud against them without crying.
Break my heart, Lord, for what breaks Yours.
This one thing I do know though for sure: My God I serve is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and He IS alive in me!! Death will not hold Him down! One day at the feet of Jesus every NATION, every TRIBE, every TONGUE will confess that He is Lord and King of Kings!!
I get so discouraged of how something so evil, so corrupt, can be so engraved in their culture and I have no way of getting them out of it. But that’s the problem. It’s not me who can. Only Jesus. Reading this scripture encourages me…
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
What a day that will be when I see my Jesus face to face. He has surely overcome it all and all will see how great is my God!
