Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 John 5:4
For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
John the Beloved said everyone who is born of God has OVERCOME the world. The victory in all of this is that it has been accomplished through our faith!
The writer of Hebrews 11:6a said, “And without faith it is impossible to please God.” Then it was Jesus who said in Mark 9:23b, “Everything is possible for one who believes.” By BELIEVING we exercise our FAITH. Faith and believing are essentially the same. Why do I say that? Because without faith, we can’t do anything. With faith, everything is possible. The power of these words from John in the passage above is that the moment we come into relationship with God, through FAITH in Him, we are made to be “OVERCOMERS!” We are now able to overcome anything the world, the flesh, and the devil throws at us. We overcome despair, depression, lust, fear, doubt, negativity, foolishness, and poverty. Wow! No wonder people are coming to believe in Jesus Christ the world over. Today let’s decide to live life as OVERCOMERS! Why? Because “Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world!”
It’s a joy to follow You by faith every day. Because of it, I’ve been made an overcomer of everything the enemy throws at me. Thank You for the power to live this great life of faith. Amen
