“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.”
I John 4:4 NKJV
If you read the the beginning of this chapter you would see that John tells us to test the spirit of those that claim to be of God. By doing this it will provide clarity on whether or not they are of God!
But as we look into the context of our verse, it says that those of us who are of God, have overcome or prevailed over these false witnesses because He (The Holy Spirit) that is in us is greater or more powerful than he (the enemy) who is in the world.
This is so important for us to take in because sometimes we feel defeated and overpowered, not realizing that the one who is all powerful, all sovereign, lives within us! There is no way we could ever lose. You have to start activating the power that resides within you. Don’t be overcome but yet you are the overcomer. The Lord has already declared that you are the head and not the tail. Begin to speak life and authority over your life, your situation. The enemy knows the power that resides in us, which is why he tries his hardest to make us feel overcome and defeated.
Be assured in knowing that God is your rock and you’ve already been declared a conqueror.
