Thoughts and Hope for the Times

My aunt shared this with me, my mom found the video (which has an extra verse). May it encourage you as it has me.

SCRIPTURE:

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 1 John 5:4

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 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. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:10 – 18

HYMN:

Faith is the Victory (John Yates)

Encamped along the hills of light, Ye Christian soldiers, rise
And press the battle ere the night shall veil the glowing skies.
Against the foe in vales below let all our strength be hurled;
Faith is the victory, we know, That overcomes the world.
Chorus:
Faith is the victory! Faith is the victory!
Oh, glorious victory That overcomes the world.

His banner over us is love, Our sword the Word of God;
We tread the road the saints above with shouts of triumph trod.
By faith they, like a whirlwind’s breath, Swept on o’er ev’ry field;
The faith by which they conquered death is still our shining shield.

[Chorus]

To him who overcomes the foe white raiment shall be giv’n;
Before the angels he shall know his name confessed in heav’n.
Then onward from the hills of light, Our hearts with love aflame;
We’ll vanquish all the hosts of night in Jesus’ conq’ring name.

[Chorus]
