Good Life Journal - 1 John 4


1 John 4:4

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 


John reminds the reader that not all spirits are from God. An evil spirit can not confess Christ as Lord. If we have His Spirit in us, we can overcome any evil because He is greater than any force. 


The world and its forces are strong. However as a believer I have the Holy Spirit. There is no one greater, no one stronger. In moments of doubt and weakness I am to call on the Spirit within me to win the battles and guide me to obedience. 

I don’t have anything to fear, because the Great One is wIthin me.


May I live and love boldly today because you are not only with me, but within me.
