Are you a survivor or a thriver?
« on: October 08, 2019, 07:53:14 am »
Romans 8:37

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.



Scripture says we are more than conquerors....are you or do you know anyone who thrives when others would only survive? What makes the difference?  How can we thrive rather than just survive?

Motivation and determination are qualities I see in those who thrive under adverse conditions. I think people have different sources for those type qualities, whereas one gets it from Christ and another from a mentor or friend etc. or life experience(s).
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins, the gospel of our salvation, and repenting, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -

I think I'm both a survivor and a thriver. I'm a survivor in that I have survived so many things. I'm a thriver in that I have kept strong faith through all that's happened to me. I'm stronger because God has given me strength, love, hope, kindness, compassion and protection. So I'm thriving.

A survivor isn't necessarily a thriver if they don't believe in God and have faith. That makes it much harder for them to thrive.

Eph. 5:11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose and rebuke them.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

amen....scripture tells us that in Christ we are more than overcomers/thrivers...in my own life, I had to look back to see that I wasn't just surviving but thriving in a situation that should have killed me.  My own daughter once said, "mom, for all you have been through, you should be severely messed up...but you aren't."  That is the power of God to bring our thriving out of a world that would rather see us die.  Amen!  Thank you Lord Jesus
