「因為凡從神生的,就勝過世界。使我們勝了世界的,就是我們的信心。」(聖經約翰一書五章 4 節)

 

  在基督徒的路程中,每一處都有網羅和陷阱,使他跌倒、墮落、失去勝利、失去平安。撒旦從不肯告退,放棄牠攻擊、誘惑、毀滅神兒女的事業的。所以,我們該在途中隨時檢查自己有否失去得勝。

 

  有時我們能,若是我們願意,在獅子的口中反敗為勝;如果我們在千鈞一髮之際運用信心。

 

  信心能造時勢,改環境。無論如何黑,無論如何凶危,只要用信心和神作一敏捷的聯合,勝敗立刻因之一變。

 

  神始終在祂的寶座上,祂能在一秒鐘之內轉敗為勝,如果我們真正地信靠祂。

 

  一個有信心的人,從不向後退的;他在遇見仇敵的地方,立刻阻攔仇敵前進。── 福煦將軍(Marshal Foch

 
************************

"For every child of God overcomes the world: and the victorious principle which has overcome the world is our faith." (1 John 5:4.) (Weymouth.)

AT every turn in the road one can find something that will rob him of his victory and peace of mind, if he permits it. Satan is a long way from having retired from the business of deluding and ruining God's children if he can. At every milestone it is well to look carefully to the thermometer of one's experience, to see whether the temperature is well up.

Sometimes a person can, if he will, actually snatch victory from the very jaws of defeat, if he will resolutely put his faith up at just the right moment.

Faith can change any situation. No matter how dark it is, no matter what the trouble may be, a quick lifting of the heart to God in a moment of real, actual faith in Him, will alter the situation in a moment.

God is still on His throne, and He can turn defeat into victory in a second of time, if we really trust Him.

"When one has faith, one does not retire; one stops the enemy where he finds him.' --- Marshal Foch.
