For whatsoever is born of God 
overcometh the world: and this is the 
victory that overcometh the world, even 
our faith (1 John 5:4).
In  the  verse  above,  the  Apostle  John  wasn’t 
prophesying; he was affirming the life we have 
in  Christ;  a  life  of  dominion  over  satan,  the  world, 
and its systems. The Christian is unconquerable; he’s 
a victor on every count; he’s born into the glory-life, 
and could never fail. 
Read Jesus’ assertion about your impregnable and 
invincible nature—your authority and dominion in Him: 
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents 
and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: 
and  nothing  shall  by  any  means  hurt  you”  (Luke 
10:19). In Mark 16:18, He said you shall tread upon 
serpents; and if you drink any deadly thing, it’ll have 
no effect on you. This means you can’t be poisoned. 
What a life! 
He overcame the world and gave us the victory, 
the power to subdue this world. That’s what John affirms 
in our opening verse. The word, “overcometh”means 
to  have  victory  over,  to  subdue,  conquer,  and  to 
prevail over. You’ve subdued, tamed and conquered 
the elements of this world; the circumstances of life; 
therefore, walk in dominion over them. 
The  Word  doesn’t  say,  “You’ll  overcome  if  you 
pray hard enough”; the only criterion is to be born of 
God  and  you  automatically  have  power  over  every 
crisis, and dominion over circumstances. Distressing 
situations may come from the enemy—the devil, but 
be  unruffled;  in  Christ  you’ve  already  been  made 
victorious. 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “Now thanks be 
unto  God,  which  always  causeth  us  to  triumph  in 
Never  wonder  or  be  baffled  by  the  trials, 
temptations or challenges that may come your way; in 
the midst of them all, you’ll always win: “Ye are of God, 
little  children,  and  have  overcome  them:  because 
greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” 
(1 John 4:4). You have to come to this realization; train 
and develop yourself in this consciousness. 
I’m born of the Word; therefore, my origin is divine. 
I’ve  overcome  the  world  and  its  failures,  hatred, 
corruption,  decadence  and  limitations.  I  reign 
victoriously over circumstances, because Christ is in 
me; that’s my assurance of a life of ever-increasing 
glory  and  eternal  prosperity,  in  Jesus’  Name.
