There is a you in you that you have never met. That person is created in the image of God and he lives in you 24/7.
John was the disciple who outlived all the other 12 apostles. When John wrote this epistle, he was responding to newly converted Jews who were living in terror because there was a decree forbidding them to confess that Jesus came into the world in flesh (John 9:22).
1 John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
John started by reminding these young believers that they were of God. The Greek rendering for the word “of” used here is “ek” which means to “proceed from a place”. John was saying they proceed from God, if you are born again you should know that you came out of God. John referred to them as “little children” or “teknion” in Greek; which means “an infant”. John was referring to newborn Christians, they had just been introduced to the gospel; so John reminded them that they have overcome the world. This is powerful because the Holy Ghost that was in them had made them an over-comer.
You shall not overcome the world system, it is not a promise; you have already overcome the world system. This happened the moment the Holy Ghost came to live in you when you confessed Jesus as lord of your life. The greater one lives in you, it does not matter who is against you; you have defeated him already. John was saying that as a child of God, you do not need to fight with demons, you do not need to organise spiritual warfare; all you need to do is to rejoice and start celebrating your victory because the greater one lives in you. I am not struggling with the devil, I overcame him, I am not struggling with poverty, I overcame it when Jesus sent the Holy Ghost to come and make his home in me. Praise God! I am an all-round success; I see victory and promotion coming my way. I am enjoying the reward of my victory right here on this earth. In all these things we are more than conquerors (Rom 8:37); you cannot be defeated, you already past the stage of being defeated. Walk in your victory today.

Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. The Holy Ghost has made me an everlasting success. I see prosperity, healing, favor, joy, peace following me all the days of my life. I am walking in the newness of life. I am a victor in this world; in Jesus’ name. Amen.
