Faith is the Victory

Faith provides the victory that overcomes the world (I John 5:4).  Faith provides victory over our worries (Philippians 4:6-7).  Faith provides victory over discontent, or dissatisfaction with our circumstances in life (Philippians 4:11-12 along with I Timothy 6:6-8).  Most important of all, faith provides victory over death.  Paul wrote, “So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Corinthians 15:54-57).  No wonder we can sing the song, “Faith is the Victory.”
