Ladies and Gentlemen, how do we overcome the things of this world?

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

Philippians 4:6-7 &11-12

In a recent teaching by Pastor Jimmy Evans called The Overcoming Life, we heard these incredible statements.

Jealousy is usually about people and Envy is mostly about things.

We can overcome these two imposters by giving THANKS to Almighty God in ALL things!

When we focus on ourselves, we become self-centered and selfish!

When we focus on others, we compare ourselves as either better or worse that breeds discontentment, jealousy, envy, and strife.

When we focus on JESUS and His abounding Grace, we realize that He loves us ALL the same. He willingly laid down His Life that I might LIVE FOREVER!

Holy Spirit of the Living LORD, we THANK YOU for who we are – The People of God! We THANK YOU for what we are – The Children of God, adopted by the Blood of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. We THANK YOU for where we are in the Shadow of Your Hand protected and covered by Your Grace Your Mercies and Your TRUTH!

Amen and Amen!
