Secrets to Overcoming | 7 Ways to Realign with God

We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, but that does not mean we have to stay in a place of lukewarm faith or shame. God created us to be more than overcomers! In Him we can overcome any situation…

God left us keys for changing throughout His Word. Keys which help us to better hear His voice, know His heart, and follow in His footpaths. Come along with us as we discover the secrets found in God’s Word which propel us toward our season of overcoming!

Realign with God

Our Messiah lived a blameless life and through His perfect blood we are saved, redeemed, and restored. Yet, there are still times we stumble. We sin, we err, but what is worse, sometimes we hide. As if the Blood of Jesus and the Salvation He bought and paid for somehow is not enough…

But it is enough. It is enough to remove every sin and ounce of shame. God is enough. Yet, what secrets does the Word give us about realigning with God? What thought processes, habits, and patterns should we hone in on to sync our hearts with His?

Join us as we explore seven biblical ways to realign with God and overcome…

1. Fear the Lord

“The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.”—Psalm 25:14

“Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You…”—Psalm 31:19

“… ‘Assemble the people before me to hear my words so that they may learn to revere me as long as they live in the land and may teach them to their children.’”—Deuteronomy 4:10 (NIV)

“And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.”—Mark 11:25

“Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”—Ephesians 4:31-32

“When Jesus heard that, He said to them, ‘Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: “I desire mercy and not sacrifice.” For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.’”—Matthew 9:12-13

3. Put Away Pride

“Though the Lord is on high, yet He regards the lowly; but the proud He knows from afar.”—Psalm 138:6

“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.”—Proverbs 16:18-19

“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way…”—Proverbs 8:13

“…yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.”—Proverbs 6:16-19

“Hear and give ear: do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken.”—Jeremiah 13:15

4. Accept God as Judge

“He shall judge the world in righteousness, and He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.”—Psalm 9:8

“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them Your servant is warned, and in keeping them there is great reward.”—Psalm 19:7-11

5. Prophesy

“Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.”—1 Corinthians 14:1

“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”—Joel 2:28

“But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath…’”—Acts 2:16-19

6. Do NOT Fear Man

“Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, you people in whose heart is My law: do not fear the reproach of men, nor be afraid of their insults.”—Isaiah 51:7

“… ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?’”—Hebrews 13:6

7. Anoint—Home, People, Property

“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.”—James 5:14

“And you shall take the anointing oil, pour it on his head, and anoint him.”—Exodus 29:7 (see 1 Peter 2:9 regarding priesthood)

“I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed the pillar and where you made a vow to Me…”—Genesis 31:13

“And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.”—Mark 6:13
