1John 4:4, “GREATER is He that is in me than he who is in the world.”
Do you know God in you is greater than anything you and I could ever face? In life sometimes we are faced with problems that try to elevate themselves above God. Often these problems try to distract us from the truth of God’s Word. During these trying times, we have to remind ourselves that our Heavenly Father is GREATER than any problem or difficulty we could ever face. In addition, too many Christians today go through life thinking God uses bad things against them for the simple reason of “teaching them” or “making them humble.” This is a BIG MISTAKE! God is NOT the author of storms. God is the author of love, peace, blessing and happiness. He is the author of LIFE! John 10:10 says, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Once we realize that God is a GOOD God, we can then look to Him for help IN FAITH! We have to look to His Word. It’s through faith in God that we will experience victory in our lives for EVERY DAY! Faith pleases God. Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Sometimes Christians are waiting on God to start “moving” on their behalf. God already moved on your behalf by sending Jesus Christ to redeem you. God is waiting for us to get in faith and ACT ON HIS WORD. Speak in faith to your problem, declare, “My God is greater!” “My Heavenly Father is taking care of me!” “I am an overcomer in Christ!” Faith in God will get you through the storm. We have to make a decision to put our focus in the right place. We have to decide to STAND IN FAITH and remember, My God is GREATER!
