Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Thursday to you all! I truly hope and pray that your day is off to a great start…and that you will come to truly see that no matter what you may be facing in your life…or going through in this world; that you can never be defeated, when you are connected to the One who has already overcome every little thing in this world…Amen!!
You know…I don't know about you right now; but there can be times when I feel so overwhelmed with life that I struggle to go on; but then I take a break and quietly look out the window…and just focus on all of creation and the One who created it all…and has control over it all; and from there, I seem to find that my situation doesn't seem so overpowering.
I think that one of the problems we experience in this evil world; is that we become too attached to what is happening around us; that we find ourselves doubting a God who has already overcome the things we tend to think on. If we could only get to know this powerful God, rather than a weak form of evil…that only appears to be powerful; then just maybe we would have the faith we need right now to continually press on…even in the midst of darkness.
One thing that God has shown me; that will help our faith to stand strong during these difficult times; is to also focus on a God who can never be defeated or overpowered by the darkness of an evil world, especially since it was His power that defeated the power of evil, through His Son's death on the cross. Yes…evil things are going to happen in this world; because we still live in an imperfect world; but that doesn't mean that evil has control; for whatever God allows…He also has control; for He is the overcomer of it all.
Last night, as I was looking through some Bible verses; God led me to a couple verses in I John 5:4-5, and we read… "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5) Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?"
Just think…as Christians, we can also be overcomers through all that we struggle through in this life…and why…because we are connected to the One who has already overcome all things in this world. In other words…when we plug ourselves into the One who has already overcome everything in this life; then we reap everything of Him…through that connection and relationship we have with Him.
We must remember that it is our faith that becomes a conquering power; that can bring evil to it's knees; for it says in Hebrews 11:1; that faith is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen…and it is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.
You know…it can be so easy to fall prey to the ways and works of evil, without realizing it at the time. It seems that we can find ourselves simply watching the news…and before we know it, we have found ourselves drawn into a snare of deception…one that begins to make us believe that there is nothing or no one that can fix what is taking place before us.
Now is not the time to get caught within these evil snares…set up by Satan; but rather, now is the time to connect deeply with the One who has already overcome…and has also made us to be overcomers in this world. When our eyes can be truly drawn into reality, rather than what is meant to deceive us and control our lives; that is when hope will begin to convey a message to us; that no matter what may take place around us…God is in control…and why…because it was He who overcame the world…not the power of evil…Amen!!
Have a very blessed day…and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow!
God bless you!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
