“Every child of God can defeat the world, and our faith is what gives us this victory.” (I John 5: 4, Contemporary English Version)
You are a winner. Every child of God is able to achieve victory. Believe this. It is because you are that child of God, the beloved idea of perfect Life, that you have a power and a strong defense against the slings and arrows of the world.
Our faith in God and in ourselves is necessary. The limitations, fears, opposition, misunderstanding, and material obstacles the material world would present are not bigger than we are. Our army is not in numbers, but in Oneness. It is in that conscious awareness that we are children, always cared for and at one with our Father-Mother— infinite goodness and omnipotent Love—and that there is no other power or presence but God.
He has absolute and loving control over His family, the children of His design and the expressions of His own Life. We each can beat the foe and we do it by an understanding faith—the certainty that we are not alone, but necessarily and permanently united to infinite Love and perfect Truth.
The world’s accusations are nothing against the Christ-Truth, the loving awareness that God is All and that we are forever at One with this Almighty Love.
