“For WHATSOEVER is BORN of God OVERCOMETH the world: and THIS IS the VICTORY that overcometh the world, even our FAITH.” (1 John 5:4)
“Whatsoever” in this context refers not just to us being children of God, but also our desires, ideas, aspirations etc. According to this verse, we are bound to succeed in whatever we set out to do once IT is “Born of God” i.e. God-inspired.
Sometimes, we do get frustrated in life because many of our desires, ideas and so on are not “Born of God.” However, the moment we seek counsel from God and get our motives right, we shall overcome every obstacle, and victory through faith is definitely assured.
Pause for a minute and ask yourself; “Did God ask me to do what I’m doing right now?”
