Our reality VS Gods reality.
Sometimes those two don't line up. I see myself, my weaknesses, my struggles... And I don't necessarily see a victor. But if God says it, I believe it! Lord, increase my faith.
Sometimes I don't understand what brought the result … But God explains here what has already and will continue to change my life. I am born of God. And this was only possible as I responded in faith to what He showed me.
So if I want more victory, just do more of this faith-responding! It's pretty simple. Just keep on believing God and responding to Him.
Those who are born of God are born of a higher temper and disposition than that of this world. To be born into God means to be born out of the world. For the love of the world is enmity with God. Therefore God has equipped us with this weapon to repel and conquer the works of darkness--faith. It is faith in an unseen power, an unseen ruler that causes us to cleave to Christ. It is faith that causes our hearts to withdraw from the world. Faith sanctifies and purifies our hearts and minds toward our precious savior.
