Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. I John 5:4 (MSG)
I John 5:4
The natural law and system of this world often fails because the world is a fallen place. That is why we see a lot of hardship and evil in the world. As believers, we need to start moving from the natural to the supernatural. We need to operate a system or a law that is higher than the one that is prevalent around us and that system/law is FAITH.
Faith is the power that brings the world to its knees; by it the elders got God’s approval and commendation as described in Hebrews 11. By faith Abraham received his inheritance. Sarah received strength to conceive and bear Isaac. Moses saw the future of Israel and therefore forsook the pleasures of Egypt. The great walls of Jericho fell down when the Israelites encircled them for seven days and shouted loudly on the last day. By faith, Rahab the harlot did not die in Jericho with those who did not believe because she received the spies in peace.
Furthermore, faith is simply taking God at His Word and believing it beyond your circumstances. In Romans 12:3 we see that God has given all of us a measure of faith, so we are not without it. The measure of faith you received at salvation, is enough for you to live in victory and conquer the evil that is in this world.
Having faith in God can reverse your medical condition. It can end the financial famine in your life. It will stop the affliction in your marriage and take you from zero to hero. However, faith without works is dead; faith has corresponding action that makes it a dominant and conquering force.
Lord I pray for strength to use my measure of faith to conquer the evil in this world, and to live a victorious Christian life on earth in Jesus’ name
