The Mindset of an Overcomer
One thing you can count on is that challenges will come: One day you can be sitting back, enjoying the view from the mountaintop, and the next day your emotional world can be completely rocked.
The Bible says that we are not to be “surprised when these trials come as though they are something strange.” (1 Peter 4:12)
But it’s not enough to anticipate adversity—it’s what you do in the face of it that determines the outcome.
You can tell yourself “I am an overcomer!” when all is going well, but what about when you can barely pull yourself out of bed in the morning?
There are 8 qualities that every overcomer shares. I want to share with you 3681ee340 of these today. Begin to Develop these qualities and you will be thoroughly equipped to rise to every challenge that presents itself to you.
1. They find joy in the moment. Many people are under the misconception that they must follow whatever feeling is ruling at the moment, and wait until joy decides to find them. But it doesn’t work this way—you have to seek joy out. Meaning, you have to decide that joy is available, even when you’re facing a challenge. An overcomer decides to enjoy more time with her children when she’s laid off from work, or catch up on her favorite books as she recovers from an illness or injury. An overcomer knows that you can at least find joy in knowing that God will use whatever you’re facing for your good at some point.
2. They expect God’s grace and goodness. God is good. All the time. He will never leave the righteous forsaken (Psalm 37:25). So if He is good all the time, you may be wondering why you are going through such a trying season. I don’t know the answer, but here’s what I and overcomers do know: that God knows what He’s doing and He will give you all the grace you need to endure until you see His goodness come to pass. And it will come to pass
3. They are willing to reinvent themselves. Overcomers recognize that they need to constantly renew their mind (Romans 12:2). And in doing so, they open themselves up to reinventing themselves on a regular basis. Their motto is “If you’re staying the same, you’re moving backwards.”
I know you desire to have the mindset of an overcomer. These are not hidden secrets for only a select few. With the same thoughts and mental fortitude, you too can have the mindset of an overcomer.
