The Bible can encourage your heart and empower your life. What verses inspire you to overcome challenges and triumph over the world? Every Christian should know these powerful Bible verses about victory.
Our God is victorious. He always wins. He has never lost a battle. He has no equal to challenge His sovereignty.
Although we know this truth by the fact of history and the choice of faith, our experience in this life can make it seem like we are losing at times. Our limited perspective can create doubt and discouragement.
Allow me to encourage you in the Lord. If you are born again, you are on the winning side! God has revealed the last chapter of history. There is no doubt of how the future will end. God and His people are victorious!
Everyone has a supernatural potential to be extraordinary. These lessons from David’s Mighty Men in the Bible will show you how.
2 Samuel 23:8 “These be the names of the mighty men whom David had: The Tachmonite that sat in the seat, chief among the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite: he lift up his spear against eight hundred, whom he slew at one time.”
David’s mighty men were the elite of his warriors. They were the Special Operations group of his armed forces.
Some of their legendary accomplishments are recorded in the Bible.
As you study these men, you will see confidence, faithfulness, determination, courage, faith, loyalty, dependability and more!
Mighty Men Don’t Start That Way.
Where did David find these mighty men? Did he go to a Warriors-R-Us store to hire them? No. Did he recruit them from a storied officer school like West Point? Nope.
In fact, they weren’t very “mighty” at the beginning.
No one is born mighty. We all begin this life as frail children born into a broken world. We are born naive and dependent.
While each of us have had different experiences, challenges, and opportunities, it is our individual choices that determine our greatness.
Do you get discouraged by the craziness in the world? These simple but powerful truths will help you rise above it all and live for God.
Micah was a Judean prophet from the Southwest of Israel. He prophesied during the reigns of three kings – Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah.
Jotham was a good king, but did not remove the idolatrous high places.
Ahaz was a wicked king with a pro-Assyrian foreign policy. The Northern Kingdom was taken captive during his reign.
Hezekiah was a good king for most of his reign. His anti-Assyrian policies led to the siege of Jerusalem by Sennacherib.
Those were difficult days for the common people in Judea. They were harassed by the enemy, exploited by the rich (2:1-13), taken advantage of by their rulers (3:1-4), and distracted by the message of false prophets (3:5-8).
The key verse in this book is Micah 6:8.
Micah 6:8 “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; And what doth the Lord require of thee, But to do justly, and to love mercy, And to walk humbly with thy God?”
There were many reasons for the people of God to be discouraged, angry, depressed. Micah was encouraging the people to rise above the drama of the day.
Your author bio can help make or break your writing career. Follow these simple steps to write a compelling bio that will not only help sell your current book but also create interest in future projects.
An author spends countless hours working on a project. There is joy and relief when the main content of the book is completed. Yet, there is still much work to be done!
The finishing aspects of your book will require the same focus and attention to detail as your content. Don’t overlook the importance of cover design, front book material, back of book synopsis, sales copy, etc.
Unless you are being published by a traditional publisher, you will have to do much of this work yourself. Paid access to our Christian Writer’s Club will walk you through the process of writing a book from start to finish with coaching along the way. Access is limited. Sign-up here for updates.
One of the most underestimated, elements of the book writing process is the author biography.
The author bio allows people to get to know you, establishes your authority, explains why they should listen to what you have to say, and helps you sell your products.
A well-written bio (with minor changes) will be used on your website, in sales copy, and in future products.
These principles can be adapted for use in projects other than books as well. Compare your existing biographical information on websites, brochures, etc. with the tips below.
This one tip can fast-track your soul winning training and give you the confidence to win souls to Christ. It makes soul winning so much easier!
As a new soul winner, I was overwhelmed with the thought of leading someone through the Gospel plan. There was so much information to process!
How was I going to remember all the verses of the Gospel plan while learning meet people, answer questions, overcome interruptions, and confront objections?
Thankfully, my mentor taught us this simple tip that made soul winning so much easier for a beginner!
Confidence in soul winning comes from prayer, memorization of the Truth, practice of the techniques, and preparation of your tools. Drawing a map in your New Testament helps you work through fearful jitters and unforeseen interruptions.
The concept is simple but effective. Draw a map through your New Testament by highlighting or underlining a verse then write the next verse you will go to next in the margin.
We recommend highlighting the verses with a yellow or orange gel (dry) highlighter. A gel highlighter won’t bleed through thin Bible pages. Click here to see the gel highlighter I use.
I use the Romans Road Gospel plan with the addition of 1 John 5:13 to start. Usually, I finish with Titus 1:12, John 1:12-13, and John 3:36 for assurance after they trust Christ. I use Matthew 10:32 when asking them for a commitment to be my guest at church.
