“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:4-5, NKJV.
In some moments, we have all felt like a failure. I’ve been there. Your joy and peace feels like it hit a wall. Your confidence feels like it ran away. Your strength feels like it is at its’ end, to where you even physically need rest. You look at your own heart, your mistakes and you ask can you change.
Then, I stop. I stop and decide I will yet go on by my faith. I’m born to win. You decide you are going to believe God anyway. You are going to do what He desires of you anyway. You will continue to reach and press, standing on His word. The moment you stop and decide regardless of how feel to go on, you will feel alive again. Your joy and peace will begin to rise and God lifts your head. This is what your faith will do.
Whatever place you find yourself in, the applying of your faith in Christ will always cause us to experience the victory already given to us. You are born of God, predestined to overcome anything. This moves us beyond living by feelings, but by faith in the Son of God. All of God’s promises are yes and amen and the Father’s truth will stand.
You are not a failure. You were born to win!
Prayer: Thank You for encouraging me Father to go on. Thank You for lifting my head. Help me not just to have faith, but help me apply it. Help me to apply it right where I am. You still saved me and regardless of how I feel, I have already overcome through the Son of God. I receive what I need from You right now. I have the victory and I am born to win! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
