Why is faith our victory? Because it is the key to defeating the enemies of this world and possessing the promises of God. 1 John 5:4 says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” The New Living Translation puts in this way, “For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.” This verse is not saying if “our” faith is strong enough or big enough we will some how be able to get the victory in our life.
