“I Am a World Overcomer!

THANK GOD, I HAVE STRONG FAITH! I have the victory. Jesus has provided it for me. It’s in me now. I HAVE THE VICTORY OVER MY LIFE- spirit, soul body, financially and socially. I  AM AN OVERCOMING, WORLD OVERCOMER. I am strong in The LORD and in the power of His might GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN ME than he who is in the world. I AM RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.
I’m supposed to be in good health. Therefore, I take it by faith, NOW. I have it! I THANK YOU FOR IT, JESUS, and I forgive if I have aught against any, according to Your WORD in Mark 11.23-25!”
