For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
--1 John 5:4
Moses was a man of great faith. And one of the things that made his faith strongest was his willingness to make a break from the world… an example each of us should follow today.
When Pharaoh tried to oblige Moses by telling him to stay in Egypt to worship God, Moses adamantly refused. He knew Egypt was a land of bondage and that his people could never freely worship God there.
This is the same trick the devil tries to play on you and me today. He wants us to play the religious game… to look godly, but to really deny the power of God. To not really trust in Him.
You and I must learn to separate ourselves from the world’s way of thinking and living, just as Moses did. We can do this by trusting in God and His Word. Only then will we develop an overcoming faith that will help us weather any storm we face!
WHEN YOU PERSIST IN TRUSTING IN GOD AND HIS WORD,
YOU CAN MAKE A BREAK FROM THE WORLD’S WAY OF THINKING.
