1 John 4:4
44 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.
Today’s Inspiration: Instability of times has rendered many powerless but rarely do we treasure God’s truth that quotes greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4. When we neglect so great a treasure in this truth, we give up easily when times are tough and wallow in self-pity instead of confronting the enemy’s strongholds in our mind and topple them by lifting up the banner of Jehovah Nissi.
As a believer, the Lord dwells inside of our body the temple of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:19. We are a tabernacle, a dwelling place of our Lord. He is the third person in Trinity who is sent from our heavenly Father in Jesus name, who will teach us all things and bring into remembrance all the truths that Jesus has taught us. John 14:26. With Him too are all the angels surrounding Him. We have learnt that one angel alone killed 18000 people, so what then can men can do to harm the world? When insight of this truth comes to the believer, no one can touch him.
Jesus also promised His disciples the peace that He left us is not like that of the world, therefore we should not regard his peace as ordinary. He also promised to return to bring us to the heavenly place to dwell in His courts, which He has prepared for us. John 14:2. So our mind should not be troubled. Fear that tends to cripple us should leave us. V27. Behind our greatest fear is our greatest strength. God always turn our mess into a message to inspire others. Therefore, what is planted in us is more powerful than what is outside of us. So do not despair when things don’t seem to turn out the way we wanted. It is in our Father’s heart to trust Him and not to be anxious for anxiety is also a silent killer that stops us from accelerating. Fear and anxiety are sources of our destruction and God promised Deliverance of us from them. Psalm 107:20. It was for our peace that Jesus went to the cross to be chastised. Isaiah 53:5. Hence whenever Jesus healed, He will tell the people to go in peace and be healed of their afflictions.
Therefore, whatever you are going through now, may you take these scriptures as sword of the spirit to win the battle and overcome every barrier in your life. How can you be weak? Don’t look into circumstances that are not real but bring out the strength that is within you that will deliver you. God be praised for His unconditional love and care for mankind.
Prayer: O Lord God thank You for granting me the serenity to trust in You and the strength to restore us to the honor You desired of us. You shall be exalted and extolled high above the heavens and the Earth. Grant us insights into Your word day by day to reveal our true self in You. In Jesus name Amen.
