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.
If we’re going to be overcoming, triumphant believers, it’s time we rediscover our true identity. The way we triumph is not through force but with the power of God’s love through Jesus Christ. That kind of triumph comes from the God who is greater, and He placed that greatness in you. For greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world!
Our God is greater than every enemy because He took your enemies to a place called Calvary and conquered them there. He is greater than every sickness because He bore your sickness upon His back, and by His stripes you are healed. He is greater than every need because He will supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory. He is greater than every bondage and addiction for He is the Anointed One who breaks the yoke of bondage and sets captives free, and whom the Son sets free is free indeed. He is the God who is greater than every mountain that you’re climbing because He can take that mountain and cast it into the sea. He’s greater than every sorrow because in His presence is the fullness of joy.
Don’t let the world weigh you down today. Our God is greater!
Father, we thank You that we are triumphant through You. Now Lord, bless us with victory in our personal lives, in our relationships, in our churches, in this community. Bless us with goodness and grace and mercy and peace and Your favor in all things that as we march in triumph, those who are walking in darkness will recognize that the Light of the world lives in us, and they’ll be drawn to You, the King of kings and Lord of lords. Let every life be blessed beyond measure this week because they live to give You the glory. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray and say and receive this blessing, Amen and Amen.
