It is the deathless struggle between the forces of evil and the will of God.  It is the daily conflict between salvation and damnation.  Victory here is possible only through faith, a faith which accepts Jesus as God's own Son, redemption through His blood, and His sanctifying grace as the power to overcome the world in our own life.

Although this life may bring us pain, Our faith in Christ can help us see That if we will obey His Word He'll give us joy and victory.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Surrender is victory when we surrender to God.`
