FAITH IS THE VICTORY

1 JOHN 5:4

W\OUT FAITH PEOPLE ARE DOOMED TO DEFEAT. BUT NO ONE SHOULD GIVE UP IN DESPAIR; FAITH CAN CHANGE FAILURE TO VICTORY.

I. THROUGH DOUBTS ‑‑ MARK 9:23.

          A. SATAN TRIES TO DEFEAT GOD'S PEOPLE BY INJECTING DOUBTS IN THEIR MINDS ABOUT GOD'S WILL & WORD.

          B. DON'T ALLOW DOUBTS TO LINGER. REPLACE THEM W\ FAITHFILLED THOUGHTS, ACTIONS & WORDS. FAITH DRIVES AWAY DOUBTS & BRINGS VICTORY OVER THEM. MARK 9:24‑27.

II. THROUGH DELAYS ‑‑  HEB. 11:1 ‑ "FAITH IS THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN"

          A. MANY CHRISTIANS ARE LACKING IN PATIENCE. THEY INSIST ON THINGS HAPPENING AT THEIR APPOINTED TIMES, & DELAYS ARE DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO HANDLE. ‑‑ HEB 6:12 (That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.) (KJV)

          B. FAITH IS NEEDED WHEN RESULTS ARE SLOW IN COMING. FAITH INCREASES PATIENCE & BRINGS VICTORY OVER DELAYS. ‑‑ PSA. 27:14; JAM 1:3

III. THROUGH DISTRESS ‑‑ MARK 5:34

          A. PEOPLE ARE DISTRESSED ABOUT HEALTH DIFFICULTIES, FINANCIAL TROUBLES, & SOCIAL PRESSURES. MANY TRY TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS W\OUT GOD'S HELP.

          B. APPRECIATE THE HELP RECEIVED FROM OTHERS, BUT ULTIMATELY TRUST IN GOD. FAITH MOVES MOUNTAINS & BRINGS VICTORY OVER DISTRESS. MARK 5:36‑42 ‑‑ (MAR 11:23) For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.  (KJV)

IV. THROUGH DANGER ‑‑ MARK 4:40

          A. OUR WORLD IS A DANGEROUS WORLD. THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN.

          B. BUT JESUS IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, & FOREVER. HE REBUKES THE WIND & SAYS "PEACE, BE STILL" ‑‑ MARK 4:39. FAITH IS THE ANSWER, IT'S THE VICTORY.‑‑ (PRO 3:5) Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (KJV)

V. THROUGH DEATH ‑‑ 1COR. 15:26.

          A. CHRISTIANS MUST FACE PHYSICAL DEATH. (HEB 9:27) SAYS "And as it is appointed unto men once to die. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WITH ALL OF US EVEN THROUGH DEATH.

          B. CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT FEAR DEATH. THEY ARE FORGIVEN, CLEANSED, & ON THEIR WAY TO HEAVEN. THEY HAVE THE PROMISE OF ETERNAL LIFE.‑‑JOHN 11:26. FAITH IS THE VICTORY.

          C. I THINK THE SPIRIT OF DEATH HAS GOTTEN INTO OTHER AREAS OF OUR LIFE, MORE THAN JUST DEATH. I THANK THE SPIRIT OF DEATH HAS GOTTEN INTO OUR FINANCES, INTO OUR MARRIAGES & OTHER AREAS. JOHN 10:10a WHAT DOES DEATH DO. IT STEAL, IT KILLS, & IT DESTROYS. WE NEED TO START REBUKING THE SPIRIT OF DEATH FROM SOME OF THESE AREAS JESUS SAID IN ‑‑ (JOH 10:10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have {it} more abundantly. (KJV)

                   1. FAITH GIVES US THE VICTORY.
