Light- Words of Wisdom for 04/05/2022 “OVERCOME”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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. 

-1 John 4:4

THERE are things in life that we simply can’t escape and must face in this flesh body. Without God on our side, it would be impossible for us to overcome most of the obstacles and snares that our adversary plots against us.  

TODAY is no different than when Adam and Eve were led away by the same spirit that got Satan thrown out of heaven-PRIDE. Without God, we would all want our way and not His will. Pride is of the world. But we, as kingdom heirs, under the spirit of adoption, have overcome those who are in the world, controlling the minds and actions of unbelievers.

LET’S look at the beginning of the first verse “you are of God.” “Of” expresses the relationship between a part and a whole. God is whole and complete, lacking nothing. Those who live in the world do not have eyes to see or ears to hear the truth about what is really going on. All humans, because we were created in the image of God, are a target of Satan.

WHEN we step out of darkness, it is then that we gain new authority as an overcomer. We are no longer under the deception and falsehoods that the world teaches. Our minds are now renewed and transformed through Christ Jesus. Now when you face battles, trials, and temptations, stand firm knowing you have God given power to resist the wicked ones who comes only to steal, kill, and destroy our relationship with the Most High God. 

Jesus, as I come up against the spirits of darkness and evil, remind me of your presence and power within me. Amen
