Overcomers

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“We can’t be overcomers if we act under-graced.  
God’s astonishing favor is meant to run like a river through
every artery of our lives, but, by His sovereign plan,
His unhindered access requires a cooperative process.”
*Beth Moore
 
How can we be overcomers
If we’re acting under-graced?
God supplies all that we need
To fight the battle, win the race.
 
His grace is flowing beyond measure –
All-sufficient, full and free,
Never bound by short supply;
Yet limited by you and me.
 
He needs our full cooperation –
Humble, broken, yielded hearts
For His grace to transform us
Into the ones He’s set apart.
 
Then we can be overcomers,
His grace coursing through our veins -
Flowing with transforming power,
Love that lifts, strength that sustains.
 
 
“And God is able to bless you abundantly,
so that in all things at all times, having all that you need,
you will abound in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV
