I John 4: 4
Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world. AMP
God has given awesome promises to every person who has accepted Jesus as Savior, but each person must read the Bible and figure out what they are. As long as you don’t know the truth, Satan will continue to feed you lies.
John was trying to get the point across that since they were children of God, they didn’t have to live in defeat all the time. They had the Holy Spirit living inside them and therefore they had a huge edge on defeating Satan. The Holy Spirit could help them walk in power and live a life of victory.
I encourage you right now to start claiming the promises of the Bible. We are all weaker in some areas than others.
For example, if you have a problem with worry, find verses in the Bible that speak directly to your problem. Then write them down and read them over and over until they become a part of you.
God wants you to get to the point that you trust Him completely to take care of problems and circumstances that arise. Absolutely nothing is too hard, big, or complicated for Him to handle.
When He says “greater is He who lives in you than he who is in the world,” He means that you don’t have to live in defeat any longer. Satan wants you to think that things are hopeless, but God says that through His strength you can have victory over the circumstance that is trying to weigh you down.
Claim the promises of God and let them sink in and completely change your life!
