Monday Manna…1 John 5:4

The Watered Soul: Monday Manna…1 John 5:4

Monday Manna…1 John 5:4

Sharing my thoughts on this week’s Monday Manna verse over at An Open Book.

Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4 (NIV)

As I read this verse today, the word overcomes leapt out at me. For me to OVER come anything, it first must COME.  Yep, even all the stuff I would rather stick my head in the sand and avoid,  it MUST come.

Essentially this verse says to me that yes

heartache did COME

trouble does COME

trials do COME

struggles COME

but I get OVER them not because I’m so smart but only because of faith in Him. It is Him that gives us the VICTORY OVER the things that COME into our lives.

For every child of God defeats this evil world by trusting Christ to give the victory. (NLT)

No matter what is come into your life at this time know that victory has already been declared for you.

Monday Manna

Good word, Wanda. The things that would otherwise overtake and overwhelm us cannot because our God has already overcome all things. Praise You, Lord.

Amen, Thank you for the wonderful Manna that I have received here this morning.

It is so wonderful to know that as children of God we are armed with victory, that was brought through the blood of Jesus Christ.

Wanda, thank you for popping into The Faith Lounge recently and for leaving a comment that added value to the conversation.

Blessings
