In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
We live with the reality of the evil in this world. If we focus on the downfall of the world, you and I may wonder if we are losing the battle. Today, the Lord wants to encourage us. He wants us to know that our victory in Him is secure! He tells us that He has overcome the world! When we are tempted to doubt, we must take every thought captive with the truth that Jesus has overcome the world.
So what are we to do? He tells us to take heart! Taking heart is not rehearsing positive thoughts that feed our soul but it is a conscious decision to put our spiritual eyes on Him, the author and finisher of our faith. Our thoughts say worry and become anxious but our spirit says “Rest”. Rest in Him.
We are overcomers! Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith (1 John 5:4). Let’s continue to pray without ceasing. We defeat evil through the blood of the Lamb and the bold word of our witness that He is Lord. Stay strong in the Lord!
