“The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”(1 John 4:4)
Hello my dear friend, today’s verse is taken from 1 John 4:4 “The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” Yes the Holy Spirit who is within you is very powerful. The Bible says in Romans 8:11 “The Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you.” That is how powerful the Lord’s Holy Spirit is!
You may be suffering with temptation to sin for many years and thinking even though the year 2021 is about to end you are unable to overcome it. Are you wondering if it is even possible to overcome it? The Lord has the answer for you in today’s promise. He says that the same Spirit that is within you is able to resist this temptation. The Bible says in James 4:7 “Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” This is the secret my friend. When you submit your life and heart to God, His powerful Holy Spirit will fill you mightily. You will then be able to resist the devil and he will flee from you.
When you face temptations, ask for the strength of the Holy Spirit. Then surely the Lord will help you to overcome the sin. Yes, you will be able to do it because the powerful Spirit of the Lord is within you. Do not give up hope or become upset and sad. Never think that your life is over and you would not be able to come out of the sin. Remember the Holy Spirit within you is very powerful to resist the devil. May you thank the Lord for the Holy Spirit and ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit today.
My loving Heavenly Father,
Thank You for today’s promise. Father, I humble myself before You and confess all my shortcomings. I plead for forgiveness for my every thought, word and action that was not pleasing in Your sight. Lord, fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to overcome temptations and not commit sin against You anymore.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
