Last night I attended the Fervent 2.0 Conference with Priscilla Shirer and Anthony Evans. She read Isaiah 43 with such passion and conviction, fervent in the delivery. There were no production lights, video or supporting visuals…she simply read the passage of scripture. And then she said, “There is only ONE that has the right and authority to give you your name…and when you figure that out you become an overcomer.” Priscilla Shirer.
As we press the RESET on our direction we are reminded of the ONE that goes before, comes behind and hems us in on all sides. What an affirmation to the direction we are being called to lead through the ministry and vision of OVERCOME Church!
MISSION to love our God and our neighbor,
MULTIPLY leaders equipped with the Gospel message, and
MOBILIZE the Body of Christ to BE the church out into a broken and hurting world.
The world will try to label you, people will try to define you, your circumstances will try to limit you. But the LORD says:
I am the ONE that gives you a name.
I am the ONE that holds your future.
I am the ONE that calls you a son or a daughter.
I am the ONE that gives you the strength to be an OVERCOMER!
Let us rest in that today. Let us push the RESET on the false narratives and lies that the enemy has holding us in bondage. We have been set free, and in that truth, we are free indeed!
We Are Overcome!
“But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;” Isaiah 43:1-3
