Undefeated: You are Already an Overcomer!


Undefeated“…You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” (Ps 32:7)

Have you ever had a song on replay in your mind—and you gradually realized that God was speaking to you through it? This happened to me recently when the song “Champion”  resonated loudly in my head all day. [1]

Finally, after many hours, I recognized that one word, in particular, was standing out:


“V for Victorious!”

That evening, my Mum—who is a gifted psalmist—chatted to me about a series of lists she has created. Each of these alphabetical lists describes what God means to her. So, I told her about the word undefeated and suggested she include it in her lists! But she replied, “I already have V for victorious!”

It took me a few moments to register what Mum was saying. She meant the two words are similar in meaning.

This left an impression on my mind, and reflecting on the two words led me to an “aha” moment.

“Undefeated” and Your Track Record

If you have been struggling with doubt lately, think about what “undefeated” means for you.

  • Victorious speaks of your status!
  • Whilst undefeated speaks of your track record.

Your status in Christ—where you stand in Him—is enthroned and in victory! And together with this, in a powerful exchange, Jesus’ unblemished track record becomes your own.

As Paul tells us, “having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.(Col 2:14, NKJV)

See it, emblazoned across your forehead—a word that describes both you and your track record, once and for all time:


Undefeated: A Word That Overcomes the Spirit of Failure

There is a spirit of failure that has been at work, oppressing God’s people.
And in particular, there are two common battles, I believe the Holy Spirit is setting people free from right now: These are insecurity and perfectionism.

If you can relate to either of these, hear your Father’s declaration over your life:
“My child, you are victorious and undefeated!”

a. Perfectionism

When we have a spirit of excellence, we honor God and the gifts He has given to us.

But in contrast, perfectionism usually comes with the voice of an inner critic; one that is never satisfied!
It sets a high bar, an ideal! One that is usually kept just out of reach.

And then, when we fail to reach that benchmark, this is what perfectionism does: It strikes—inflicting a wound on our soul.
Over, and over again.

b. Insecurity

Insecurity is also an intruder and may come from an orphan mindset.
When we are insecure, we put ourselves forward, but then we have doubts about the value of our contribution.

We might speak out, or bring our gifts to the table—and then feel uncertain about whether someone will receive it (or not).

And when that happens, there is also an inner strike against us; a sting. A perceived failure.

Receive Your Updated List!

For those who battle perfectionism or insecurity, this pattern of (perceived) failure or success may look like this:

  • Failure
  • Success
  • Failure
  • And so on!!

But the New Testament declares that God has exchanged that list for another—one upon which every line declares “victory”.

God is Breaking the Hidden Cycles of Failure

Maybe you can relate to this today. That critic—that voice of the accuser, the one who has stood and spoken against you.

It has sought to belittle and condemn you.
It may have even tried to stop you in your gifts and ministry.
But its time is up!
The truth of God’s Word is setting you free, and the Holy Spirit is breaking the hidden cycles of failure!

That critic has been operating against you illegally because it is lying about your Kingdom status. But you are about to serve it an eviction notice!

Undefeated Means There’s No Claim Against You

This is the power of the cross and the truth at the heart of deliverance, for the enemy has no claim against you. Today, I pray that your eyes are opened to see this:

  • The record of your sin (and yes, even your inconsistency) is nailed, once and for all to the cross.

What good news—you are undefeated!

And now, your destiny is to overcome.
Every day, you can practice a lifestyle of overcoming, because being an overcomer is who you are. It’s your identity!

“He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.” (Rev 21:7, NKJV)

Today, if you can relate to having that struggle, this is a game-changing word that can set you free.
Hear it, see it, speak it: “In Christ, I am undefeated!”

Further Bible Study

If this message about being “undefeated” in Christ has resonated with you, I encourage you to visit these Bible passages (chapters) for further study:

Colossians 2, Hebrews 9 and 10, Romans 4, Romans 8


[1] The song is “Champion”, and I’ve been listening to the version by Maverick City Music and UPPERROOM. I invite you to join me on my Spotify “Prayer Room” playlist, where you can listen to it along with me. You can also find it on YouTube with song credits and lyrics here.

  1. Praise King Jesus Helen,
    I bless the Lord for the timely message he has used to share this day.
    All my life I have been mocked, despised, persecuted, abused, spoken ill of whether at work, ministry, family members and at some point it has created scars that are still bleeding, I pray Jesus heals my heart and breaks the hidden cycles of failure!
    IAM an overcomer and IAM victorious in Jesus Christ.

    God bless you, keep you and make his face shine upon you Woman of God.

    Best Regards,
    Tracy E. A

    1. Hi Tracy, I pray this truth will not only touch your life, but it will be as though you are immersed in it, and every label the enemy tried to stick on you will fall away, in Jesus’ Name. For you are loved, victorious and undefeated <3

    2. Indeed, woman of God you spoke the healing to my life and to entire Church. This massage is the healing one for the entire Church, really we suffer insecurity to our calling and end up wanting to pretend. Thanks God for the assurance that we are overcomers and conquerers in Christ. May God bless and anoint you continuously.

    3. I thought I had been defeated, but this week I found the table had been turned the other way. Praise the Lord. Amen

  2. Honestly, I needed to hear this more than anything i guess, i have ever heard.Helen,”God has gifted you like no other in this field! God has opened a door for me right here,for the first time I feel a release from the strong hold that has been such a drag on my life.Thank you from my heart.

    1. Hi Joann, He is lifting you up! I pray you will continue to experience a lasting change in this area, for there is nothing like His truth to set us free, once and for all

  3. The song “Wake Up” by Mad Season popped up for me recently after not thinking about it or hearing it for years. The song is secular, the writer of it was begging his friend to stop taking drugs, but I feel that the chorus of “Wake up young man, it’s time to wake up. This love affair has got to go. Wake up (x3).” is perhaps in this instance God is saying to the Church to wake up. Stop messing around with the world. It’s time to get going and doing His good works.

    1. Oh wow, yes Staci that word about wake up is so true. It’s amazing how the Lord uses songs in particular to share His messages.

      1. Hi Helen! Yes, I agree, it’s amazing. God taught me long ago not to think that He cannot and will not use secular music or artists for His purposes. He did give them the talent and outlet right? So He can do what He will with them whether they’re praising Him or not.

  4. Nicholas Uanikhoba

    I have had a long and ingoing struggle with perfectionism. Honestly this word is a great help to me. I intend re-read it again and again.

    1. I’m praying for you, Nicholas! We agree in Jesus’ Name that perfectionism is being loosed off you and you are now walking in the freedom of the Spirit, without sting, or regrets, but with joy and liberty
      “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” (Rom 8:1, NKJV)

  5. Pastor perfect word for me i needed to hear this. I feel insecure and have negative thoughts sometimes. So this victorious word means a lot for me. I will keep saying it and confessing it. Thanks u are a true woman of God and i pray he continues to used you tor his glory.

    1. Hi Rosanne, yes, you can live free of regret, for you are victorious and undefeated! What a powerful gift in Christ, and I pray it grows in your heart, even more, bearing fruit in your life that will astound many

    2. Thanks Pastor Helen for adding another word to this story undefeated to Victorious. These 2 words compliments each other and a perfect timing as well. I am due for an increase and my superior is blocking it so pray for me while i shout out i am undefeated and victorious in Jesus mighty name. AMEN.
