on on . .

Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE.  Join us at 6 PM EST.

First, “They can because they think they can.”

Philippians 4:13 KJV

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Philippians 4:13 AMPC

“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency].”

Second, “They can conquer who believe they can.”

“A lot of times people look at the negative side of what they feel they can't do. I always look on the positive side of what I can do.”  Chuck Norris

 “You have the ability to choose which way you want to go. You have to believe great things are going to happen in your life. Do everything you can - prepare, pray and achieve - to make it happen.” Dr. Ben Carson

Third, “Go forth a conqueror and win great victories.”

Romans 8:37 KJV

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

1.         Be confident God will bring you the victory.

1 Samuel 17:9 NIV

“If he is able to fight and kill me, we will become your subjects; but if I overcome him and kill him, you will become our subjects and serve us."

Jeremiah 1:19 NIV

“They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD.”

Matthew 16:18 NIV

“And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of death will not overcome it.”

2.         Know that no weapon of the enemy formed against you will prosper.

Luke 10:19 TNIV

“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”

Luke 10:19 KJV

“...and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Luke 10:19 MSG

“…and protection from every assault of the Enemy. No one can put a hand on you.”

3.         Renewing your mind will prevent you from being overcome by evil.

“As you pray for the Holy Spirit to make you aware of thoughts that come into your mind that don't line up with God's Word, you'll begin to realize when those thoughts come and you can renew your mind with the Word.” Joyce Meyer

Romans 12:21 TNIV

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Romans 12:21 AMPC

“Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.”

Romans 7:18-25 MSG

But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can't keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help! I realize that I don't have what it takes. I can will it, but I can't do it. I decide to do good, but I don't really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don't result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.”

 21-23It happens so regularly that it's predictable. The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God's commands, but it's pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight. Parts of me covertly rebel, and just when I least expect it, they take charge.

 24I've tried everything and nothing helps. I'm at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn't that the real question?

 25The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind, but am pulled by the influence of sin to do something totally different.

“I've discovered that when we take time to renew our minds with God's Word, we learn how to think like God thinks, say what God says, and act like He wants us to act.”  Joyce Meyer

Romans 12:2 NLT

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

4.         Inner resource becomes your outward strength.

“I’m a thousand times bigger on the inside than I am on the outside.”  Smith Wigglesworth

1 John 4:4 AMPC

“Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.”

Revelation 12:11 AMPC

“And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb [we were first born-again] and by the utterance of their testimony, [we ONLY confess what God says… not what the devil wants us to say] for they did not love and cling to life [we have given up life as the world lives it to live as the Lord instructs us to live in Him] even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].” 

“Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.” Maya Angelou

“We may get knocked down on the outside, but the key to living in victory is to learn how to get up on the inside.” Pastor Joel Osteen

5.         Confidence in the outcome.

Revelation 3:21 AMPC

“He who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant him to sit beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame (was victorious) and sat down beside My Father on His throne.”

Romans 8:37 KJV

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

“You need to understand that life isn't what you're given, it's what you create, what you conquer, what you aim to achieve.”

Psalm 71:5 AMPC

“For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust from my youth and the source of my confidence.” 

First, it’s important that you place your confidence in the right person.

Psalm 146:3 NLT

“Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there.”       

Second, man or woman may/will/can disappoint you but God never will.

Psalm 118:8 AMPC

“It is better to trust and take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in man.”

6.         Remember who gives you the victory.

1 Corinthians 15:57 AMPC

“But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Revelation 2:11 AMPC

“Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches. Christ-conquerors are safe from Devil-death."

Revelation 21:6 MSG

“Then he said, "It's happened. I'm A to Z. I'm the Beginning, I'm the Conclusion. From Water-of-Life Well I give freely to the thirsty. Conquerors inherit all this. I'll be God to them, they'll be sons and daughters to me. But for the rest—the feckless and faithless, degenerates and murderers, sex peddlers and sorcerers, idolaters and all liars—for them it's Lake Fire and Brimstone. Second death!"

7.         The recognition you will receive as a victorious overcomer.

Revelation 3:5 MSG

Conquerors will march in the victory parade, their names indelible in the Book of Life. I'll lead them up and present them by name to my Father and his Angels.”

Revelation3:20 MSG

"Look at me. I stand at the door. I knock. If you hear me call and open the door, I'll come right in and sit down to supper with you. Conquerors will sit alongside me at the head table, just as I, having conquered, took the place of honor at the side of my Father. That's my gift to the conquerors!”
