THE GREATER ONE IS IN YOU!
1 JOHN 4:4 NASB
4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them;
because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the
There are two vital points in this verse, which is addressed to
believers. (If you have not welcomed Jesus Christ and the Holy
Spirit into your life -- none of this applies to you.)
FIRST, God is IN you -- not far off somewhere.
Yes, God is in Heaven -- but that is not the only place He is.
By the Holy Spirit, God now has His dwelling place in you! You
don't have to "try to reach God." He is right there! What you
need to do is to cultivate an awareness of His presence. This,
along with communication, is the way to develop a closer
relationship with God.
Knowing that God lives in you, and that He loves you, should
banish all fear from your life. Fear of failure should have no
place. Fear of what other people think should not bother you.
Fear of problems that may come up should be of no concern. You
have God living in you!
2 CORINTHIANS 6:16 LB
16 And what union can there be between God's temple and idols?
For you are God's temple, the home of the living God, and God
has said of you, "I will live in them and walk among them, and
I will be their God and they shall be my people."
SECOND, God, Who is within you, is greater. Greater than any
problem. Greater than any difficulty. Greater than the devil.
Greater than anything you will ever face.
1 JOHN 4:4 ICB
4 My dear children, you belong to God. So you have defeated
them because God's Spirit, who is in you, is greater than the
devil, who is in the world.
This is the Word of God. We must embrace it and live in the
light of it. We must meditate on it and speak it. We must
resist any contrary thought the enemy might try to place in our
SAY THIS: God, Who is in me, is greater than anything I will
ever face. The Greater One is in me.
About: I am a christian woman who loves the Lord with all her heart and soul, and strives to love my neighbor as myself. I thank Him for His death, burial and resurrection, for the work of the cross and His precious blood that he shed for me and you on Calvary, that washed all of our sins away forever. The word of God says "Let the redemed of the Lord say so" I am one of the redemed and I'm not afraid nor am I ashamed to say so!. I give God all the glory and all the praise for all that He has, is, and will become in my life, It's because of Jesus that I am saved TODAY, AND I PRAISE HIM!Back to Blog | Add to Buddy List
