Whenever you are faced with a staggering opposition, never forget that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. – @PastorRan.
I don’t know what you are going through this morning, but I have good news for you. As a believer in Christ, the Bible says “greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world”. This means because the greater one lives in you, whatever suffering you are going through shall not last.
Because the greater one is in you, that sickness in your body cannot stay. Poverty and penury will go far away from you because the greater one is in you.
There are days that it seems as if you are not making any progress. I have felt moments that seemed as if I had not achieved anything. When this happens, I get to my quiet corner and meditate on the fact that the greater one lives in me. The same spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead has come to live in me; this means I cannot fail because the Holy Spirit does not fail. The Apostle John was one of the disciples that lived this wy. He was the disciple that Jesus loved and he consistently leaned on Jesus’ bosom so much so that when Jesus was on the cross, He asked John to look after His mother (Mary).
The Apostle John lived with Mary as mother-and-son for many years. John knew that Joseph was not the biological father of Jesus. John knew that James was the half-brother of Jesus. John saw Lazarus raised from the dead and how Jesus walked on water. If you read the account of John, he doesn’t say anything about his time with Mary. He did not say much about Lazarus that was raised from the dead. In those days, the Church was being persecuted and most Christians had fled to other parts of the world. It looked as if they had lost. But John had faith, He knew that the greater one lives in him. John was thrown in boiling hot oil and the oil did not burn him because the greater one lives in him. John was sent to the island of Patmos and left to die but he lived there so long that Jesus appeared to him and gave him the revelation.
When the Church was going through tough persecution, the Apostle John wrote a letter to them. Here is what he said. This also applies to you today wherever you are.
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 told these believers in Christ that they have overcome their enemies because greater is He that is in them, than he that is in the world. The Holy Ghost was in the people in the days of old and He is in you today. This person that is in you is greater than the economy, the banks, the universities, the police force and all systems of this world.
Join me in this prayer right now. Claim every word in it as yours and receive it now.
Father, I am conscious of the fact that the greater one lives in me. I cannot fail because the greater one lives in me. I am destined for the higher life because the greater one lives in me. I am blessed in all my ways because He that lives in me shall lavishly supply all my needs in Jesus’ name. Amen.
