Mark 9:24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
The word “overcome” (Greek nikao) is found in may verses of scripture. It is an important word that can when fully meditated upon and prayed through can bring hope and determination and healing through the power and mercy of Jesus our Christ. He has provided the great foundation, the cornerstone of all overcoming possible to those who love Him. When our will meets and is subsumed in His will anything is possible. These are easy words to write this day, but for those of you who doubt I would ask that you take a moment to scan the scriptures using a concordance or a website with that function built in and see the various occurrences of the word “overcome”. You will find that those who chose to follow God can overcome depression, danger, fear, and like the loving father of the young boy in the text above. The man asks for help. Jesus explains and obliges. How perfect, and how holy a moment could you imagine.
Today, I would urge you to place all your hope in Jesus. Ask Him for faith to overcome whatever your circumstances are. You will not be overcome, but you will overcome “by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony” (Revelation 12:11)
