Today’s Scripture Focus: 1 John 4:1-21
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4 NIV).
You are an overcomer. There is no reason to wallow in defeat. Your greatest enemy, the devil, is a defeated foe. Greater is the one who is in you (Christ) than he who is in the world (Satan).
True, your enemy does slander and accuse. But you don’t have to listen to his lies. You are a new creature, forgiven and redeemed. There is no reason for you to remain defeated by false guilt; no reason to hang on to something God has long ago forgiven.
True, your enemy does know your weak spots. He does his best to tempt and lure you into those places of weakness. But Jesus lives in you—and his power is greater than the temptations of the evil one. Stand strong.
True, he will try to steal your joy. Rejoice that you serve the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!
You are a child of the King. You are an overcomer. Jesus lives in you. Greater is he who lives in you than he who is in the world.
Jesus, help me to walk in victory today through the victory you gained on the cross and in resurrection. Enable me to be an overcomer this day and in the days to come. Amen.
