“For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.”
1 John 5:4-5
“Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.”
Hope everyone has a great hump day!!! Here’s a little shot of truth today that will jack you up!! As a child of God, we are surrounded by evil every single day in every direction we look. We may hear evil and only think the real bad stuff like murder or something that puts a person in prison but evil is way bigger than that. Evil lurks around every corner, sometimes in the smallest of little areas in our lives, a lie, a hurtful word, pride, and so many areas. Evil can seduce any person, upstanding citizen or criminal.
What’s really awesome though, we may be surrounded by evil and may be tempted to partake at times but as a Child of God we believe in a God who has overcome and defeated every piece of evil out there. We don’t have to give into it’s tempting schemes or play into the pain it brings, we can REJOICE, and get daggum excited because with God there is no evil that can harm us! By believing that Jesus is the Son of God, the Savior, the Messiah, we believe in His name. A name that entails the detail and significance of what He stands for! What He has done! Believing in the name of Jesus is believing in the adoption to become Children of God, one with the Son, given new life through Him. Believing in the name of Jesus Christ, it’s believing in what He came to this earth to accomplish and what He has done, walking out His days as sinless and perfect, conquering evil before man’s very eyes. Then He conquered evil once and for all on the cross, dying the death that each one of us deserved, taking every piece of sin and evil in this world as our perfect sacrifice to buy our freedom. Jesus has defeated evil for good and as Children of God we can put our lives on His victory! We don’t have to sit around and worry about any person or anything in this world truly harming us because evil has been defeated! We can rejoice and be daggum excited about the victory we have in Christ! He has given us a confident hope in this victory over evil and in times of being surrounded by it we have Jesus to take our troubles to, (“Immanuel”- God with us), we can hold tight to His truth and victory, be patient and keep coming to Him no matter what we see around us. We keep praying as Jesus renews our faith, gives us new hope and revives our strength, peace that keeps us steady. Rejoice today Child of God!!!! The victory has been won and Jesus has given us today and everyday until we leave this earth to walk in His victory!!!
