“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” (Revelation 12:11a NKJV)

The book of Revelation makes tremendous promises to those who are overcomers.  Revelation 12:11a tells us very simply how to gain the promises: through the blood of Jesus.  When we speak God’s promises to our circumstances, to ourselves, or about the devil, we literally overcome whatever problems we are experiencing.

The paralyzed man at the pool of Bethesda was a real “overcomer.”  After waiting 38 years for his healing, the man one day met Jesus, who told him to “rise.”  Jesus challenged what seemed impossible.  The man rose up, took his bed, and walked.

Many times, I have had to speak the Word to overcome fear.  I had to tell my mind, “You’re not going to be in fear.  You are going to trust the Lord.”

David spoke to his soul.  When the devil attacked David’s mind, he told it to get in line with God’s Word.  Speak God’s Word to your mind too.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today we thank You for the blood of Jesus.  We choose to take the Word because it will grow and prevail in any circumstance or situation we face.

In Jesus’s Name,
