For every child of God overcomes the world; and the victorious principle which has overcome the world is our faith. 1 John 5:4 Weymouth

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4 KJV

At every turn in the road one can find something
that will rob him of his victory and peace of mind,
if he permits it.
Satan is a long way from having retired from
the business of deluding and ruining God’s children if he can.
At every milestone it is well to look carefully
to the thermometer of one’s experience to see whether
the temperature is well up

Sometimes a person can,
if he will,
actually snatch Victor from the very jaws of defeat,
if he will resolutely put his faith up
at just the right moment.

Faith can change any situation.
No matter how dark it is,
no matter what the trouble may be,
a quick lifting of the heart to God
in a moment of real, actual faith in Him,
will alter the situation in a moment.

God is still on His throne,
and He can turn defeat into victory
in a second of time,
if we really trust Him.

“God is mighty! He is able to deliver;
Faith can victor be in every trying hour;
Fear and care and sin and sorrow be defeated
By our faith in God’s almighty, conquering power.

Have faith in God, the sun will shine,
Though dark the clouds may be today
His heart has planned your path and mine,
Have faith in God, have faith alway.”
