Prayers and Promises: 1 John 5:5

Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:5)

The world is so tempting!  There’s chocolate….and chocolate… , yeah, I know it’s tempting, but it’s not the worst the world has to offer.  How about adultery, fornication, pornography … these all can press on you and press on you HARD.   It is so hard to live in this world and not fall into all the traps that Satan sets for us.   But these words remind us that Jesus has overcome the world.  He has overcome death.   So if I believe in HIM who has overcame, then I, too, can overcome the world.  I don’t have to settle for what the world has to offer.  I can look forward to the BLESSINGS that God has for me.  Keep the faith, dear ones.  The reward is great!

  1. Amen. It is really easy to go our own way. I am learning that in my weakness, He is truly is strong, whether I feel it right away or not.
