Have you ever been so discouraged that you felt all hope was gone? Scripture tells us in 1 John 4:4, "You are from God, little children, and have conquered them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." We may go through many struggles in this life but we can know with confidence that Christ has conquered them all. We encourage you to walk in His victory today. What does that look like when everything surrounding you says the opposite of victory?  It's like the saying "baby steps."  Begin each day with the simple act of faith in God, His Truth and declare the Scripture outloud over your life, your current circumstances or whatever it is that you are dealing with.  Even when the victory seems afar off or even invisible remember, He is "the strength of my heart." and that you can go to Him with every need.  Don't forget to thank Him, for He has, He does and will do great and marvelous acts in our behalf!
