1 John 5:5

Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

Those truths that we believe at the core of our beings drive our actions. Our faith in the Son of God compels us to overcome this world.

We focus on the great things that people do, but those feats spring from a bedrock belief that moves them to act. David ran to meet Goliath because he believed in a God who was bigger than any giant.

Moses defied Pharaoh because he trusted the great “I AM” Who promised to go before him. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego chose the fiery furnace over a gold idol because they were convinced the Fourth Man in the fire was able to deliver them.

The early disciples were imprisoned for preaching in the name of Jesus. They believed so fully and so deeply in the One that God had raised from the dead that their faith was like a fire shut up in their bones. It could not be contained!

Let’s be people who are utterly convinced of the truth of God’s Word, who pray with deep faith and expectation, and who expect the miraculous. That deep-in-our-bones belief propels us to blaze forth with His light and shout His truth from the rooftops. That hang-onto-it-at-any-cost conviction will lead us to fight a good fight and finish our race with arms raised high in victory.


May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May your faith grow through His Word, through the testimonies of others who have overcome, through the blood of the Lamb and through the presence of our God Who promises to never leave us or forsake us. You will overcome when you believe in the powerful name of Jesus!
