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.”
When you belong to God, His Holy Spirit resides in you. It is His Spirit that works in you, changing you, conforming you into His image; because God wants you to look like Him! When people look at you, God wants Himself reflected in you and through you; that means, look like God in the way you think, act, and speak When a child of God faces the spirit of the world – anger, jealousy, intimidation, worry, sickness, etc – the Word says, you have overcome them because His Spirit is greater and His Spirit lives in you. Do you think God can lose because a demonic force went against Him? It is impossible for Him to lose! Child of God, that means you must see yourself the same way – as an overcomer, by His strength and by His power! Change the way you see yourself if it’s not in agreement with how He sees you. It doesn’t matter what demonic force may work against you- what sickness, what lack, what confusion or stresses you are facing – God’s Spirit in you is greater still! And if you keep yourself in alignment with His grace, His Spirit, His thoughts about you, you will always overcome!
“Abba, I thank You that Your Holy Spirit lives in me so that I am never left to work things out on my own. You are always there working in me, working for me. Help me to always remember that. I declare that by Your power at work in me, I am an overcomer now, in Jesus’ Name!”
