He Who Is In You Is Greater

March 2011

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
-- I John 4:4

I think we sometimes give the enemy too much credit. I am not saying he is not out there trying to trick us, trip us, and cause trouble for us. I’m saying The Word says he has already been defeated. (John 16:33)

The Word states that when the enemy tempts us that God gives a way out. (I Corinthians 10:13)

The Word states that, “the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (I John 4:4)

The Word states that we overcome the accuser “by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of” our testimony. (Revelation 12:11)

The Word states that, “He gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(I Corinthians 15:57)

We do not need to give in to a defeatist attitude of, “I’ll never get out of this.” Or, “I’ll always be this way.” No! We have a choice. We have a way out! By His help we can overcome.

There is not a person among us that has not at some time faltered and failed but listen to this with your ears as you read:

“My heart and my flesh may fall, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” – Psalm 73:26

Hallelujah! Forever He is with us! Forever He is faithful!

Bottom Line: May we come to a complete understanding of the One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world.

Love in Christ,
