He is Greater!
1 John 4:4 (KJB) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
I am convinced that all professing Christians would greatly benefit from the reading and applying this verse each day. We cannot possibly hear this important truth too often! The more we hear it the easier it is to recall, repeat, and apply this verse in tough times.
Reaching out to God’s supernatural strength and direction to aid us in our battles will both comfort and strengthen us in those times when we feel we are of small spiritual stature and our immediate problems are huge and about to spiral out of control. Therefore, God’s Word tells us repeatedly not to live our lives according to our feelings for they often mislead us to walk in in wrong directions. Falling flat on our face during an attack by satan and his minions can work to increase his dark influences upon us.
Failing to evoke the presence of God’s Spirit, at work inside the heart of every child of God, in tense moments of extreme or adverse situations is spiritually hazardous. It is easy to get worked up in the moment and attempt to “fix” things on our own, rather than relying upon the supernatural power and strength of God, who is always ready and available for our every need.
The child of God can call out to God in any situation. He stands ready to keep us spiritually tall and tough in the face of any enemy. His power is always greater than any other at work in this world.
