Daily Meditations: With Faith In Who?

Must read

The word of God says “the whole world is under the control of the evil one.” –  1 John 5:19.

However, it also says “His banner over me was love”. This is a word with deeper meaning than is apparent.

The definition of God in The Bible is that “God is love”-1 John 4:8. Since His banner (a big umbrella) over us is love, this means that God covers those who believe in Him from the effects of living in a world that is under the control of Satan.

To understand what is going on here we need to go to the root of the Latin word con-fidei which is expressed in English as confidence. Con-fidei means with (con) faith (fidei). Therefore the word confidence is incomplete.

With faith in who? In yourself? In others? Or in God? To activate God’s banner over you, you need to consciously have faith in Him as you go about your life and when you do the world which is under the power of satan may rain around you, but it will be as if you have an umbrella that protects you from the rain.

The rain might be expressed via wars, Ebola, recession, joblessness and other ills in the world, but your Banner will protect you from them.
