Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional 6 January 2018 – Faith to Overcome the World
“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”
(1 John 5:4, ESV)
As a child of God, you have the power of faith within you to overcome the world. That includes everything in the world, and everything the world brings your way! The Bible says that faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). As you hear the Word of God and store it in your heart, your faith in God grows stronger.
When the enemy tries to attack you through sickness, fear, worry, or financial mishaps, just use your faith by declaring the Word of God. Find scriptures to speak over your problem or whatever you are facing. Declare that perfect love casts out all fear! That God shall supply all your needs! Declare that because you are born of God, you have faith to overcome the world!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
God, I am Your child and that means I am destined to live a life of victory. When the world gets to be too much for me to bear, remind me to take comfort in Your Word. Help me to store up Scripture verses in my head and my heart to help me overcome the trials I will face in this world. In Jesus’ name – Amen.
