Daily Verses: 1 John 5: 1 – 5
Key Verse: John 16: 33b : “… But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
The Lord’s promise today is so comforting and strengthening – that He has overcome this world! The world symbolizes the devil and everything he does. The Lord has defeated it with a glorious victory. If the devil has been defeated, it is a very good sign for us that nothing is impossible and that miracles will surely happen in our lives. Because God has overcome this world, it means we who believe in Jesus as the Son of God also have overcome this world, verses 1 and 4. We do not need to fear anymore. Do not be deceived by the devil who tries to trick us into thinking that we have not won, that he is still rampant, and so on. Declare with a loud voice and remind him that he has lost and that he can no longer make an impact in invading our lives.
Every time the devil tries to remind us of our failures, remind him that he has already been defeated by our Lord Jesus Christ and that we have already won!
Today I will look myself in the mirror and declare with faith: “I am more than a conqueror, I am loved by the Lord, I am righteous because of the blood of Jesus, I will be the head and not the tail, I will experience “increase” because Jesus has already died and risen for me!
1 John 5:4: for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
I will pray often in the Spirit and ask the Holy Spirit to fill my life once again. I will also continue to pray for my VIP list and invite them to attend our Sunday Service tomorrow.
