Be An Overcomer
The object of any game you play is always to win. It may not always be easy, and there will be "curve balls" trying to get you to lose. Even though you may try your best, you will not always win at the games you are playing. In life, there will be trials and tribulations that will try to get you off the track of finishing the course that God has given you. The devil will always try to distract, tempt, and persuade you to give up. However, God has given us the Holy Spirit, Who encourages you not to give up and to finish the course that He has given you. In these verses God encourages us that Jesus Christ has overcome the world, and He can help us overcome our trials, tribulations, and Satan's temptations when we trust and have our faith in Him. In Philippians 4:13, Paul says, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Never let those things distract you from finishing the course God has given you to run because He is there to provide you with strength and encouragement to be an overcomer.
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
1 John 4:4-6 (KJV)
