As believers in Jesus Christ we are empowered to overcome in this life. In the last two post we saw that we can overcome, The World, The temptations of the flesh and, The Devil with God’s word and the Spiritual Armor that is available. Remember that God always leads us in His triumph. All we need to do is follow His instructions.

I remember the old Timex commercials that said “It takes a licking and keeps on ticking.” No matter what kind of attack you may be under with God on your side you can keep on ticking or living.

Our physical DNA is in every cell of our body. You’ve see the picture of what DNA looks like. It determines everything about you. well we have a spiritual DNA. God said to me that spiritual DNA stands for Divine Nature Assigned. It determines everything about you spiritually.

This week we’ll look at Four distinct features of a believer’s DNA:

Faith:   Rom 12:3 “God has given to each one the measure of faith” Faith in God gives us spiritual sight, seeing beyond the immediate natural struggles of life into a spiritual reality for the favorable outcome. Faith demonstrates itself in boldness, confidence and recognizing that what we see is only temporary.

Favor: the advantage to succeed in life. We are members of the Royal Family of God. God surrounds us with favor. A great example of favor is the Story of Joseph in the book of Genesis.  Read Gen 36-39 for his life.

Forgiveness;  We have the capacity to forgive. Unforgiveness does not harm the person who has harmed you. All it does is keep you tied to the person or event like a tether ball. No matter how hard you hit it, it will always return to you. Forgiveness is a decision of the will. Once you decide, feeling will follow.

God’s Love:  Remember God loves you as much as He loves Jesus. God’s Love will keep your faith working, the favor active, the forgiveness easier and will always cause us to overcome the obstacles of Life.
