For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.

And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

1 John 4:4 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.

1. We can only activate Grace by our faith. Stop fearing what men will say, start living by faith. The sight is just a sample of one of our 5 senses, if we're gonna accomplish great task for GOD, our 5 senses should be stopped or suppressed so our faith can operate. Faith can't live with doubt or logical thinking brought about by our five senses, stop using the 5 senses and use the sixth sense alone, that's our faith.
