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
There’s so much negative information in the world today, and this has instilled fear in the hearts of those who aren’t rooted and grounded in the Word. The Lord Jesus referred to this in Luke 21:25-26 when He described some of the signs of the end of the age. He said, “…there shall be …distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth….” In Luke 18:8, He asked a thought-provoking question, “…when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
You’re to stand your ground in faith, irrespective of the challenges and hardships in the world. Refuse to give up or give in to the pressures of life. The Word says in Ephesians 6:13-16, “…having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; ABOVE ALL, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.”
With your shield of faith, you have the inherent ability to completely neutralize all (not some) of the fiery darts of the enemy. When he throws the dart of fear at you, declare, “I refuse to fear, because the greater One lives in me!” If it’s the dart of sickness, say, “I refuse to be sick; my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit!”
You can train your faith to accomplish anything. In the area of your finances for instance, you can watch yourself grow from one level to another. Imagine if in acting your faith, you said you would receive a certain sum of money within a week, but you ended up receiving it after one month; don’t feel bad. Instead, say, “I’ll get it right next time.” Then give more attention to studying and meditating on the Word, and act your faith at every opportunity. That’s how you train your faith to grow and accomplish bigger things.
This isn’t only applicable to your finances, but to every area of life. You can train your faith with the Word to prevail against all odds and adversities of life.

Dear Lord, thank you for my faith is the victory that overcomes the world. As I demonstrate my faith today, circumstances bow to me; obstacles are eliminated, and I walk in supernatural success and prosperity. I exercise dominion over sickness, poverty, disease, failure, and the elements of this world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
