That God chose to, WANTS to, paid such a price to dwell within us... it's just mind blowing, life altering.

It is an awesome reminder... God in us... in me. I still tend to think of our Father up in Heaven looking down, sending his Holy Spirit every now and then.

I will think about this many times tonight. What a tremendous reason to be thankful yet again. I should be trembling.

Great stuff. Thank you Missy.

Oh Missy! Thank you for posting this, especially now. Tomorrow is my Mom's memorial service, and frankly, I'm feeling stressed; so my 'mantra' needs to be as you said:
"God, Who is in me, is greater than anything I will ever face. The Greater One is in me."

Isn't it amazing how powerful it is when we SPEAK the word instead of just thinking it? That's good stuff!!

Every morning I give myself a pep talk (to me and my promise to God of how I will try to live my life that day) and it always includes that very verse you quoted here - "Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world." It really helps keep things in perspective of who I am and the power behind me.

God's Word is powerful. Sharper than a two-edged sword, right?!!

The Greater One Is In You

1 JOHN 4:4 NASB You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

There are two vital points in this verse, which is addressed to believers. (If you have not welcomed Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit into your life -- none of this applies to you.)

FIRST, God is IN you -- not far off somewhere.

Yes, God is in Heaven -- but that is not the only place He is. By the Holy Spirit, God now has His dwelling place in you! You don't have to "try to reach God." He is right there! What you need to do is to cultivate an awareness of His presence. This,along with communication, is the way to develop a closer relationship with God.

Knowing that God lives in you, and that He loves you, should banish all fear from your life. Fear of failure should have no place. Fear of what other people think should not bother you. Fear of problems that may come up should be of no concern. You have God living in you!

2 CORINTHIANS 6:16 LB And what union can there be between God's temple and idols? For you are God's temple, the home of the living God, and God has said of you, "I will live in them and walk among them, and I will be their God and they shall be my people."

SECOND, God, Who is within you, is greater. Greater than any problem. Greater than any difficulty. Greater than the devil. Greater than anything you will ever face.

1 JOHN 4:4 ICB My dear children, you belong to God. So you have defeated them because God's Spirit, who is in you, is greater than the devil, who is in the world.

This is the Word of God. We must embrace it and live in the light of it. We must meditate on it and speak it. We must resist any contrary thought the enemy might try to place in our thinking.

SAY THIS: God, Who is in me, is greater than anything I will ever face. The Greater One is in me.
