Sharing my thoughts on this week’s Monday Manna verse over at An Open Book.
Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4 (NIV)
As I read this verse today, the word overcomes leapt out at me. For me to OVER come anything, it first must COME. Yep, even all the stuff I would rather stick my head in the sand and avoid, it MUST come.
Essentially this verse says to me that yes
heartache did COME
trouble does COME
trials do COME
but I get OVER them not because I’m so smart but only because of faith in Him. It is Him that gives us the VICTORY OVER the things that COME into our lives.
For every child of God defeats this evil world by trusting Christ to give the victory. (NLT)
No matter what is come into your life at this time know that victory has already been declared for you.
