“For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.” (I John 5: 4, New Living Translation)
We are not victims of the world and its apparent evils. We don’t have to agree to feelings of weakness or fear. We have an inherent ability to defeat the devilish elements and to bring out a better day for ourselves and for the world as well.
Our victory comes through awareness and acceptance of who we are. We are children of God, born of His goodness, protected by His might, and recipient of His promises. We are at one with God, with the Almighty Who is all good, all the time, in every place. We can diminish the evils in our thinking and make room for this Truth. We can watch error dissolve through our humble faith in the power of God, of good.
This verse does not leave anyone out nor require that we have a mighty army to conquer the challenger to peace. Every child of God is a death knell to evil. Being who we are, the very expression of God’s Life and Truth and Love, we can feel confident that our individual flames can dissolve any darkness where we are, bringing light to our lives and to our greater world.

I am fanning my little flame hoping to dispel a little darkness today!! Thanks for your faithful service!! If you ever need a string bass player, let me know!! A little out of practice as I haven’t played for years.
I used to be the bass player for “Jack Armstrong and the All Americans” back in Chillicothe Ohio in the 1950s!! (YES!!! There WAS a time ages ago when it was in the 1950s!!!) :::sigh:::: We used to play stuff like.. are you ready for this… “It Must Be Jelly Cause Jam Don’t Shake Like That!!” and other small town Ohio favorites!! Elvis was in his early days then and we did some of his stuff, but a lot of country music and Johnny Cash numbers, etc.
Love from here!!
