Action: Conquer

READ: “Because everyone who has been fathered by God conquers the world. This is the conquering power that has conquered the world: our faith” 1 Jn 5.4.

THINK: By faith David won over Goliath. The world (=everything and everyone against God) appears to be immense, but God is greater. We already know the ending. Victory depends only on our faithfulness. Faith has content: Jesus as the Son of God, 1 Jn 5.5. Victory through Christ is a motive for gratitude and praise, 1 Cor 15.57. In him, we are more than conquerors, Rom 8.37.

ACT: Show the victory of faith by turning problems into opportunities.

PRAY: God, inspirer of faith, thank you for victory over the world. I believe! Strengthen my faith.

ASK: What can I do today with my victorious faith?
