1 John 4:4 is a classic verse to me; one that we should all memorize and meditate on!
“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.”
I have declared over my life and circumstances many times that “greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world “ When it speaks of “he that is in the world” the Bible is speaking of the devil. 2 Corinthians 4:4 identifies the devil as the “god of this world”. Please understand that there is a spiritual being known as satan who leads a demonic kingdom. John 10:10 says the thief (satan) comes to steal, kill and destroy. That’s the desire of satan for our lives and families, but Jesus has conquered the devil. Luke 10:19 says “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
When you receive Jesus into your life, the Holy Spirit actually enters your spirit, and because of that we is can truly say “the greater One lives in us”!!!
