Faith Overcomes

1 John 5:4

Because everyone who is born from God has overcome the world, our Faith is the victory that overcomes the world.

I desire to have this Faith that overcomes “the will of the flesh” which dwells within me; whose workings make it painfully manifest in my inward conflict with the carnal mind (the mind of the flesh)
I desire victory over the flesh working within me, the profanity and sin and treachery working all around me. Victory can only come by Faith – by believing God in what He has said as to “things to come.”

In the absence of Faith, one will find themselves mourning, groaning, murmuring, depressed and distressed. Why?
Because we are looking at “the things which are seen.” Because we don’t see “the Invisible,” it’s as if we are in the dark shade of a tower when we should be looking down from its height, seeing the big picture.

I have stayed with affliction, abided with my commitments, and looked to God for help in each circumstance. I have lived in hope, even though it always appears to be dashed. Faith puts me on the high tower, looking down instead of in its shadow, unable to see at all!

This Faith overcomes the world and gives me victory.

1 John 5:4
For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our Faith.

If I believe what I have heard from God about Jesus Christ, His Son, it ought to make me the happiest of beings. It should be like water to a thirsty plant. It should make my joy grow exceedingly.

-Give yourself to a life in the service of love.

-Bless others as a servant of all.

-Live only so that the love of God may work through you.

-Love will constrain you to speak, to give, and to pray.

-Overcome the working of “the will of the flesh” in the worship of God.
In no other way can it be overcome.

-Have Faith in His word – past, present, and future

The Word of the Lord will stand forever!

Isaiah 55:8
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

John 4:24
God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
