I am no longer a
loser. I am more than a conqueror.
I am an over-comer in every area of my life.

have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, if we are hungry, if we are cold
or in danger, threatened with death? (Even the Scriptures say, “For your sake
we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” Psalm 44:22)
No, despite all
these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loves us.
True peace starts
with my thought life,
regardless of my circumstances.
Always be full
of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are
considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and
thank Him for all He has done. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace,
which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will

because He abides with you and will be in you.
