The world seems so overwhelming at times. The pressures come from all sides seeking to crush me. I feel as if I cannot stand. I feel defeated. Yet your word dear God continues to promise victory. Your promises declare we will overcome the world if we believe in your son Jesus Christ. Our strength to endure comes from you, not ourselves. Help me to hold on to your truths in a world that bombards me with lies and false hope.
“For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” – 1 John 5:4-5
