From the desk of an Overcomer:
"For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world -- our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God." I John 5:4,5
(3528 - nikao - conquer, overcome, prevail, get the victory)

My mom sent me this verse as another reason to give thanks. She said, "It was too small a thing to only save Israel, so Jesus saved the Gentiles as well..."
Read and see it for yourself:
He says, "It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant To raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also make You a light of the nations so that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth." Isaiah 49:6
It was God's plan from the beginning to be a light to the whole world - Jesus didn't fail with Israel and decide to add Gentiles as a last minute change.
Thank you, Father, for clearly showing Your plan and following through with it.
