Those Who Believe
Posted: August 11, 2016
Are you struggling with discouragement today? Have you been fighting a battle in your life and are starting to grow weary? Do you feel like giving up, throwing in the towel and waving your white flag of defeat?
You’ve been believing for restoration in your marriage, and it hasn’t happened yet. You’ve been believing God for healing, and you’re still dealing with your sickness. You’ve been believing God for provision and you’re still just scraping by. You’re tired, and you’re starting to lose hope.
But let me encourage you today: keep the faith! If you have received Jesus as your Savior and Lord of your life, you have been adopted into God’s family as his child. Because of this, the Bible tells us that we have victory through our faith. So when you want to give up, remember that you’re God’s child, and that overwhelming victory is yours through Christ Jesus! (Romans 8:37)
“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 NLT
Jesus, thank You that Your Word promises victory through my faith. Help me to continue trusting in You even when I feel like giving up. Help my faith to arise and help me believe You for victory in my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
