Victorious Faith Perseveres

Victorious Faith Perseveres

Victorious Faith Perseveres (This message was preached at Oasis Church in Tomball, TX.)

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.

Raise your hand this morning if you desire victory in your life.

Raise your hand if you are pursuing victory in your life now.

Raise your hand if you would say you are living in the victory right now.

Every hand should be up on the last question!


You may say well Pastor my life isn’t going well right now…? Have you seen my bank account…


Our victory is not determined by the leading number to the zeros in our bank! Not on our job situation, Not on our marital status, or the number of people you trust.


Victory is declared in Christ Jesus through faith by grace.


2 Cor 5:7 – “We walk by Faith and Not by Sight”


Through our Faith We declare our Victory!


Romans 4: 13-18


The Bible States that we are Word ruled, or ruled by His word, and people of Faith and not the law that He calls those things which are not as though they were.


So looking at your Persevering Faith today, looking at your Victory today! God sees you victorious not broke busted and disgusted.


There’s a saying “if God brought to it, He will bring you through it!


So lets look at this Victorious Faith that perseveres!


  1. Winning Faith is a Choice! Not happenstance, not coincidence..
    1. Deut 30:19-20
      1. I call before you a cloud of witnesses on heaven and Earth to witness your options
        1. Choose Blessing & Life
        2. Choose for you and your descendents
        3. What land did he Sat he would give them? The promised land! The Victorious
      2. But you must first make the choice! It says CHOOSE!
  • Let me ask you do you know what He wants for you?
  1. We walk by Faith and Not by Sight!
  2. What are you to have Faith For?
  3. Romans 10:17 “Faith Cometh by Hearing and Hearing by the Word of God”
  1. To know the Word is to know and build your Faith
    1. You come across Scriptures like
      1. Mark 11:20-24
      2. Mark 16:15-18
  • Mark 9:23 Everything is possible
  1. 1 John 5:4 Everyone born of God overcomes the world, or victorious
  2. James 1:1-5 Turn here
    1. Persevere through it all,
    2. Lacking nothing….>
  3. Once your Choice is Made Stand
    1. Don’t Give up! Eph 6:13
      1. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore. NKJV
      2. 13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place]. 14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], Amp
    2. Luke 11:5-10
      1. And He said to them, “Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within and say, ‘Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you’? I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
