Text: 1 John 5: 4.
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God.
Life is full of trouble and challenges.
The struggle and challenges of man came in place after the fall of the first man in the garden of Eden.
Many times, after you have successfully gain victory over a particular challenge, in no distant time, another greater comes.
In Job 14:1, Job said, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble”.
But in our today’s devotion, we are not magnifying trouble, rather we have come to introduce an antidote to the troubles of man.
For as trouble is common to man, so are solutions common to God.
Even after the death and resurrection of Christ, we’re not promised of a trouble free life, but we are promised of victory over any trouble we encounter.
For Jesus has overcome the world. (John 16:33).
God knew that the birth of man through a woman is full of trouble, so He planned for another kind of birth.
A second birth, a birth of repentance in Christ Jesus.
“For as many that are born of God overcomes the world”
Are you born of God?
The blessed assurance to overcoming the troubles of life, is the second birth in Christ Jesus.
Do you want to see God’s salvation in your life?
Do you want to see the hand of God winning battles and challenges for You?
Then you must accept the life of Christ.
You must accept Christ as the Lord and personal savior of your life.
And when Christ comes in, there is more than a 100 percent assurance of victory over those troubles and challenges of your life.
To welcome Christ into your life, sincerely say this prayers by faith.
“Lord Jesus, I have heard your word and I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of you the Savior.
Have mercy on me.
I confess with my mouth, that you are the Lord over my life and I believe in my heart that your death and resurrection has redeemed me from sin.
Be the Lord and savior of my life from today and deliver me from all of my troubles, afflictions and challenges as I put my trust in you and you alone”.
You have made the right decision.
God bless you and keep you safe from the evil one.
Psalm 34:19, O Lord deliver me from all my troubles, (call the challenges and situations by name).
Make a way for me Lord.
