I Can-


As born again believers, we must all come to realize that God has given us the ability to be more than Conquerors in life.

We can reign over all things.

There is nothing to difficult for us.

When we look to God our possibilities in life are without limitation.

Luke 18:27But He said, "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."

Philippians 4:13I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Another translation says, "I am ready for anything through the strength of Him who makes me strong".

There is nothing I cannot master with the help of the One who gives me strength.

1 Timothy 1:12I thank him who has made me equal to the task, Christ Jesus our lord...

Here's the task-

The equal sign is the total of all the equations!

Romans 8:37Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

So that makes me settle the opposition-

In this message I want to give you ten things that God says you can do through His strength.

II.Ten Components of Your Victory is this!

1.I Can Believe.

The first and most important aspect is our belief in what Jesus has said concerning our positions with Him and what He can do through us.  We must believe.

Hebrews 11:6But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Mark 9:23-24Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!"

• Do you believe that God has made you equal to any task that He gives you?

• Do you believe that God will take your impossibilities and turn them into possibilities?

• Do you believe that you are more than a conqueror through Him?

Ephesians 1:19-20...and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places.

You can Be a Believing Believer:

2.I Can Change.

Our life in Christ consists of a ourselves to His transforming grace.

You can change the things around you!

2 Corinthians But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.3:18

Glory to Glory-

This means putting on the new person of Who you are NOW!

Not what you used to be!

Ephesians...that you put off, concerning your former actions, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,  4:22-24{24} and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in righteousness and true holiness.

3. I Can Be Loved By God and Love Others.

Being able to fully receive His love into our lives.

This is what gives us the freedom and the liberty to grow and mature and be blessing to others.

Romans 5:5Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

1 JohnBy this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 3:16

4.I Can Forgive And Be Forgiven.

1 John 1:9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Ephesians 4:32And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ also forgave you.

Luke 17:3-4"Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. "And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him."

5.I Can Take control of Thought Life.

I don't have to walk in doubt!

I walk in the power of the Gospel!!

Good news:

Having a what I am attitude:

2 Corinthians For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the authority of Christ.  10:3-5

Oh but the devil keeps hitting me...

Hit back:

Hit back with the Word...

I'm the righteousness of Christ:

I shall live not die... Ps. 118:17

Philippians 4:7-8...and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy; meditate on these things.  (fix your minds -

6.I Can Make A Difference.

We have been sent into this world to be salt:

We have been given to this generation to serve the purpose of God.

Esther 4"For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?":14

Philippians among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. 2:15...

7.I Can Accomplish Great Things.

John 14:12"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

8.I Can Stand In The Midst Of Adverse Circumstances.

Ephesians For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness.6:12-14

9.I Can Defeat The Enemy.

1 John 4:4You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Luke "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.10:19

10.I Can Be A Finisher.

2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

let's remember that God's desire towards us is that we all become great for Christ. 

Phil.1:6 Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Love in Christ and In His Grace;
