Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
1 John 4:4
This scripture is a declaration. I have it written on my heart and also in my collection of scriptures that I call: Arrows for my quiver which is on my I-phone. I pull out this powerful declaration when the enemy starts his nonsense, like an unwanted thought, or an accusation that suddenly pops into my head, or the feeling that I’m worthless, or any number of stuff that the enemy of our souls can conjure up.
We are born from above by the spirit of the living God. We are new creatures in our Messiah, our old life has passed away. When we are filled with His spirit we can say with confidence: Great is He that is in me…
This simple declaration can stop the enemy in his tracks and push him back where he belongs.
Years ago I went to Dr. I. D. E. Thomas and we were having lunch together. I complained that the enemy was hitting me hard. He looked at me sagacioulsy and stated the above scripture. Great is He that is in you… I’ve never forgotten his reply and I’ve made this scripture part of my life.
In closing todays short bun. When we are hounded and in the battle. We should know He is greater. He—Jesus—is our salvation, our shield, our truth, our peace, the author and finisher of our faith and He is the living WORD! Greater is HE!
