This is the victory that has conquered the world: our faith. (1 John 5:4)
Pastor John’s Notes:
Faith is trust in God. It is not something we derive from our own strength or reasoning, but faith is a spiritual gift God gives to those who love him. Faith holds us steadfast to God’s purposes. Faith enables us to remain obedient even when everything seems to be going the wrong way. If we hold onto our faith, God will bring us safely through all trials to a final victory. Though the world may rage against us, God remains faithful to us and will never fail in His promises.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of faith that can overcome. Help mess remain centered in your plans and purposes for my life. Let the faith you give me keep me from discouragement and draw me safely through every trial to the victory you have planned for me.
