The Greater One is in You
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 John 4:4
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Take a look at Daniel 11:32. It says, ‘But the people that know their God shall be strong, and do exploits’.
I want you to know that there is a big God living inside of you. The one living inside of you owns the universe. He is the Omnipotent and the Omniscience God. He is the beginning and the end, the first and the last; and you are His child. He knows the very numbers of the hairs on your head (Luke 12:7). Also, you are engraved in the palm of His hand (Isaiah 49:16). He loves you unconditionally and because of His love for you, He has handed over to you the power to tread over all the powers of the enemy (Luke 10:19).
In Him, you are more than a conqueror, a winner, and a champion. The devil only roars like a lion, but he is not the lion (1 Peter 5:8). Our God is the lion of the tribe of Judea (Revelation 5:5). Do not be afraid of what the enemy can do to you. You have overcome him already, because Jesus fought the battle and won on your behalf. The victory is yours. Square yourself up, and press on like a good soldier. You have overcome the devil already.
Knowing your identity makes you bold and fearless; you are not afraid of what the enemy can do to you. But how can you get to such a level of boldness? The answer is by studying, meditating on, pondering on, confessing and obeying the word of God. This is so because faith comes by consistently hearing of the word of God. You have to hear the word again and again in order for you faith to grow.
Let the greater One in you work through you, to become who He wants you to be. This is why the Bible says in Daniel 11:32 that when you have a deep knowledge of the Maker, you become strong and great exploits become your lifestyle. Invest in the knowledge of God. Buy materials that will help build your inner man. The spirit of a man is much stronger than his natural self. So invest in building up your spirit man and you will reap abundant blessings.
Father God, help me to overcome my shortcomings in order to partake in your holiness and righteousness.
LORD God Almighty, show me your precepts and help me to walk in them, in Jesus’ name.
Point to ponder on
The people that know their God shall be strong.
