For whatever is born of God overcomes the world

Last night at our Ladies Study
Gisela shared from
1 john 5: 4,5

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

This really touched me.
She shared how we pray, and believe, that God will do all these miracles for Asia and for big external things to happen.
And they do!
God wants us to have Victory in our everyday life.
What ever sin we are struggling with, He can overcome it!
We can overcome it.

I struggle with anger and self control
(like the cookie on the counter).
He says through our faith we have overcome the world.
Even the world that is in us (our sins).
She talked about how we have the Holy Spirit right in our reach, we just need to have faith and believe He will help us overcome.
And He will!!!!!
She made the analogy to a robber breaking into your home, and you don't call 911. That is like trying to deal with your sin all by yourself. We have the creator of the universe as our helper, we just need to ask!

Peace in Jesus,
