Living in the Victory of Redemption

We read in I 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?”

When we truly believe in our hearts that Jesus is the Son of God and put our faith and trust in Him, we will live in the power of God to overcome anything the world throws at us.

In Romans 12:3, the apostle Paul says, “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” Paul isn’t writing this letter to sinners. Paul is writing this letter to the believers who are the church in Rome. Since he is addressing it to believers, that means he is addressing it to us who believe also. When we put these two sets of scriptures together, we discover a great life-changing truth. That truth is that when you make Jesus Lord of your life and believe He is the Son of God, God gives you a measure of the God-kind of faith that enables you to become a world overcomer.

You may be thinking about now that if I have world-overcoming faith, why am I struggling to get the victory? The answer is found in James 2:14-17, “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” For your faith to overcome, you must put corresponding actions with what you believe. You must align your words and actions with what God says in His Word. Faith is believing and acting on God’s Word. So, whatever you are needing right now turn to God and His Word, believe it, confess it, and act on it and your faith will overcome whatever it is the world is throwing at you. Remember, this is the victory that overcomes the world, even my faith!

I pray this letter is an encouragement to you. I am so thankful to be able to speak into your life. I also want you to know that as my New Life Team Partner, I continuously keep you covered in my prayers. I am believing with you that throughout this year your faith will give you the victory and cause you to overcome the world.

This month, I am excited to tell you that we have officially launched a new outreach. Darrell Huffman Ministries is now on World Harvest Television (WHT) every Thursday at 12:30 pm EDT. I am so excited to be on international television sharing the good news of the Kingdom of God. Our program is “Faith That Overcomes.” We will also be putting our half-hour program on my website, and my YouTube Channel, Darrell Huffman Ministries, so you will be able to watch and have your faith strengthened by the Word of God.

Bonnie and I will be very busy ministering the word over the next several weeks and if you’re in the areas where we are ministering, we would love to see you.

As I close, I ask you to pray and stand with us with your seed-giving. As you give, this Gospel will go forth and many lives will be changed. I set my faith with you as Paul did with his Philippian partners in Philippians 4:19, “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Once again, thank you for standing with me, and as always, I am praying for you that God’s very best will be yours.
