… for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4
Victory belongs to the most persevering.
Knowing the character of God helps us fight from a place of victory, instead of for the victory. When we know who God is, He to be exalted in our lives; and for the enemy camp and your flesh to be held at a distance.
The bible says that everyone born of God overcomes the world, and when we are born of God our spirits are quickened to perceive God. If the word of God says that He can do anything, and created something out of nothing, why do we fear? If the word says that He will set our crooked paths straight, why do we doubt? If God says that He works all things for good, why do we lose our hope or patience when something unplanned happens?
When going through the ups and downs of life, we can meditate on the character of God. If we focus our minds on the goodness of God, and the attributes of God we can rest by faith. Some of the attributes of God that we can trust in are that God is all knowing, ever present, all powerful, sovereign and unchanging.
We love you Lord Jesus. Forgive us for our shortcomings, forgive us for doubting and allowing circumstances to influence our faith and convictions. I pray you strengthen our hearts, and replace old habits of thinking as we renew our minds. I thank you for your love, your faithfulness and company. In Jesus name, Amen.
