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.
These are the days we have to learn how to take each step cautiously. It is important that we rely more on the word of God than on the things of this world. You belong to God and not of this world. You are of God and He calls you His little children. We have an intimate and strong relationship with God.
1 John 5: 4 – For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.
John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Don’t forget that you belong to God and you can overcome those who are in the world.
We are born of God.
Know your identity and realize who you are. Know who your author and designer is and then you will overcome the world. You are born of God, the power is given to you and the authority is given to you to overcome the world.
The world belongs to the devil; it is being manipulated by the devil. You belong to God, He has given you authority, anointing, power and you are called His Children. You can overcome the world and be victorious.
Revelation 2:7 – “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”
Genesis 2:9 – And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
When you overcome the world and enter heaven, God will allow you to eat from the tree of life, the privilege what we lost when the world was created. The privilege which was stolen by the devil, the Lord will give it to us when we overcome this world. The tree is still there for you and me to enjoy.
Revelation 2:7 – “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”
People of this world is concerned only about this worldly life. They don’t realize that there is a judgment and second death. If you overcome all the temptations and trials brought to you by the devil with the help of God, you will not face the second death. People of the world might blame and frame you, but with the help of the Holy Spirit you can overcome.
He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Joseph was blamed and was framed inside the pit, but God helped him to overcome all trials and lifted him up. People might think evil for you, but God is thinking something great for you. Jesus Christ has conquered death.
David is a good example for confessing his sin in front of the Lord. If you have sin in your life, seek the help of Holy Spirit to give it up. Confess and pour out your heart to our Lord Jesus, He is merciful to forgive, heal and bless you.
If you are in a pit of blame, don’t be afraid. God will help you to overcome and be victorious. Let us overcome this world and God will call us His little children. Amen.
