In a World Spiraling Out of Control, He is Greater
Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world (1John 4:4).
Those that have experienced new birth and indwelling of the Holy Spirit now have a built in check against the things that are not of God. Those that are of the world speak as the world speaks and they listen to them (v.4) True believers have nothing to fear, for even Satan's hosts with their perversions can't take them out of the Lord's hand (John 10:28).
There is protection over all these things by sound doctrine and the indwelling Holy Spirit who illumines the mind. Even in a world spiraling out of control we can have confidence and security in God. So continue with endurance the race set before us, fight the good fight of faith, for the prize is eternal live with Jesus Christ (2 Tim. 4:7; 1 Tim. 6:12; Heb 12:1). Press on toward the goal of the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3: 14)
Lord, I come to you with a heart that is humbled. My hope and security are from you and I press on toward the goal of the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. It is my Lord and Savior who gives me the strength to press on and to fight the good fight of faith. As your word says; 'greater is he that in me than he that is in the world". Thank you for loving me and sending Your Son to heal my brokenness and sin. By your stripes I am healed I now have new life in you. Because of this I have nothing to fear. No one can snatch me from your hand. May this be our prayer today, that if anyone should listen with unhardened hearts and believe that you are the Son of God and that God raised you from the dead, they will be saved. It is my hearts desire that my family and friends have a right relationship with you. It is in the Son of God that we find rest for our troubled souls. And it is in Jesus Christ we have total healing from our sin. May our prayer be a please aroma to you. In Jesus precious name I pray, amen.
