Victory Assured

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. – 1 John 5:4

The world constantly tries to keep us in a state of turmoil and unrest. To step ahead, take in God’s Word to fortify. Remain optimistic because God is big enough to provide the poise we need to think through each situation. As explained in the post “Step Ahead with Poise”, God is working behind the scenes to set things up for our benefit because we are highly favored by our Creator.

The world has a way of making us feel like we are lacking. I’m not skilled at that or I’m too slow. I just don’t catch on to that new concept like others do. If thoughts like this come to mind, remember that with God there is no need to get stressed out. He’s big enough to make up the difference and provide that extra push to finish in victory.

In the scripture at the beginning of this post, we are told of God’s plan for us. This is a plan for victory that is carried out by going to Him in prayer, accepting Christ as Savior, and being washed of sin. Our new birth is the victory assured and is also highlighted in this video: The River – Jordan Feliz.
