God has tied himself irrevocably to human cooperation in the execution of divine purpose. He has made man’s faith a determining factor in the work of redemption.

To be an overcomer in this life will require walking by faith
Overcoming in life will require the attitude of faith.
For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world even our faith (1 John 5:4).
We must live with the consciousness that we are a victor in Christ.
We have been born into the family of overcomers!
verse 5 Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the son of God?
Victories are won in battle and Jesus has defeated the enemy!
KJV Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 and ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11 in whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
His victory is our victory!
Act like a winner!
Victory is an attitude, a confindence that we walk in because it’s already ours
1 John 4:4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
We fight all our battles from a place of victory seated far above the enemy.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
For we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
Victory is possessed with knowledge and gratitude.
2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere.
If we always triumph, that means we never fail!
it is God that causes us to triumph!
1 Corinthians 15:54 “even death is swallowed up in victory”
57 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Greek word “Nikos” triumph means: Victory; A conquest
The Greek word “Nikao” and “Nike” Victory means; to subdue, conquer, overcome, prevail, the means of success.
Romans 8:31 If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us
To conquer means: to triumph, to overcome, to win, to succeed, or to be victorious
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death
