“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1 John 5:4-5)
God is here telling us that if we establish faith in us, we will achieve victory. It is our victory, yes, but really, it is Lord’s victory – in us. The faith itself is the victory. The faith isn’t unto the victory. The faith is the victory. The existence of faith in us is evidence of our Father’s victory in us.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome delivered a message addressing His children across the world to persuade them to build faith in themselves to overcome grievances.
“Faith is the victory that has overcome the world! There’s no battle left for any of God’s children to fight. Every battle has been fought and won by Jesus. All He expects today is for us to live in the realm of the finished works by maintaining the victory that he obtained for us as a result of His death, burial and resurrection. As we consistently take our stand in faith against sickness, disease, poverty, death and every other manipulations of the devil, we are maintaining our victory in Christ Jesus.
You must completely reject anything that hurts or binds because you’ve been delivered from all the oppression of the enemy. Life in Christ is a super-life. It’s a daily expression of victorious and triumphant living!
2 Corinthians 2:14 says; Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ! Notice it didn’t say we’re triumphant sometimes but always! I tell you, there’s no defeat for the Christian. A true Christian does not fail in life, he’s an all-round success.”
Hear Him, when you come to that level where faith becomes your conscious lifestyle, you’ll never have a reason to despair, and neither would you any more give room for despondency in your life. You will not blame anybody for whatever problems you may face because you’ll discover that you’re responsible for whatever happens to you. Nobody can make you poor, sick, or subject to the low life of a victim because you operate daily by faith! Faith is the victory that overcomes the world and its systems. Hallelujah!”
Have faith in your Heavenly Father and in yourself as well to get through your problems like a warrior and achieve triumph.
