And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

— Revelation 12:11

Sometimes, when you and I really blow it, we get the idea that we can't come to God. But then on other days we may feel like, "I've had a great day today. I feel like I can ask God for his blessings."

Well, let me remind you that on our best day, you and I aren’t worthy to come into the presence of a Holy God. The only righteousness that we have is found in the blood of Jesus Christ. And that’s how we overcome in every situation.

Apart from the cross and the blood of Jesus Christ, we are not overcomers… we are overcome. But because of what Jesus did on the cross, Satan is a defeated foe and he rules over a doomed domain.

So that means we’re not fighting for victory. We’re fighting from the position of victory! And whatever you're going through… whether you’re sick, brokenhearted, or fraught with temptation… whatever it is, in Christ Jesus you are more than a conqueror.

Believe it, but don’t stop there. Testify to that fact! There is overcoming power in your testimony!

Stand on the promises of God and testify of his greatness. "He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4).
