Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world - 1 John 4:4
What popular scripture we often quote, shout to, scream from the rooftops, imprint on every shirt, social media and platform we have available. This scripture is just not some quotes worthy phrase. The Holy Scriptures were given to us by God and they are Spirit and Life unto us. In considering this, I have found myself questioning and examining, is the word I shout to relative to where my life is in God? I have come to find out that the life of Christ isn't just revealed when everything is going ok. If you be any otherwise minded there is nothing like a good old trial to reveal where you are in agreement with God.
The world does not have a valid definition of what it is to be a son of God. I’m so glad this world cannot define us. The Bible tells us they who are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God. It is time to embrace the fact that we are in this world but not of this world. A songwriter once wrote, "Your greater is coming," but the truth of the matter is for the sons of God greater has come on the inside of us. There is no circumstance, there is no trial, there is no pressure of this life that the God in us has not already overcome.
In this life you will suffer but God has left us with these encouraging words. "I will keep you in perfect peace if you keep your mind stayed on me." So if you have found yourself discouraged by what you’re going through know that you’re not alone. Rather than focusing on what you’re going through put your eyes and focus on the God that brought you to the circumstance to overcome. You have been chosen to live this life in Christ surrender and let him overcome through you. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: 1 Peter 2:9
