Wednesday, January 28The Greater One
1 John 4:4; 2 Corinthians 2:14
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""
Him being referred to as the greater One in our opening scripture is the Holy Spirit. He is greater than all; everyone and every challenge that might come our way. The Word tells us that His greatness puts us over in all combats of life. When the believer receives the Holy Spirit and endears himself to Him, he will learn to rely on Him for every task and demand of life. According to God's Word, He is the One the Father has sent to help us through and with life (John 14:16). He is our Standby and Strengthener giving us supernatural strength to always overcome all the challenges of life. Victory is sure in every sphere of life by Him.
2 Corinthians 2:14 speaks of our everlasting and ever constant triumph in the combats of faith, "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place"; we are more than conquerors through Christ (the anointed One) who loves us and abides in us. The dynamics of walking in victory lies in the partnership between the believer and the greater One within him. This is the secret of endless victories over the situations and circumstances of life. Victory is our birthright in Christ, however it is the Holy Spirit who delivers it in our hands.
Relying on the greater One begins by acting on the Word of God. When you face any task or challenge, you say, ' In Jesus' Name I am more than a conqueror and the greater one puts me over'. When you talk this way in faith, He will wrap Himself around you so powerfully and energize you to go past the natural limits and cross the hurdles on your way up.
