How we win…

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.

1 John 5:4

We often talk about having faith without really thinking about what it is like in practical terms:

When we trust that God is working out a solution for us even though it appears that we have been forsaken…

When we continue to pray even when it seems our words are simply entering a vast expanse where no one hears and no voice answers…

When we believe that God’s love is complete and that He is aware of our circumstances, even though our world is not moving one inch in response to our petitions…

When we desire only what God has planned for us…

When are waiting patiently while seemingly starving to death…

And when our only fear is that our faith might fail…then we have genuine faith!

Prayer

Dear God…many times between my fear, my impatience and my desire to do things for myself…I lose faith in You. Help me to recognize that the real warrior here is not me but Christ. And He has already won the battle. So it is my faith in Him that makes me victorious. May You forever remind me of this…I ask in my warrior’s name. Amen.
