1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them because greater is He that in you than he that is in the world.
Our scripture text speaks to the greatness of God over the rulers of this world. What this means is that God the Holy Spirit lives in every believers and through His indwelling Spirit believers can and will overcome the evils of this world.
Let's be reminded that God is the creator of everything both seen and unseen, which includes Satan. God will never be defeated by Satan and the evils of this world. That said, there is nothing that God cannot do as there is no failure in Him; therefore, with His Spirit living inside we are more than conquerors. This is because Christ soundly defeated all at the cross. Therefore, fear not; stand bold and strong in the Lord because greater is He that is in you than he that is in this world (1John4:4). Satan and all evilness will soon come to naught.
Armed with the indwelling Holy Spirit and God's body armor believers can face the world in confidence as we stand firm on the truth of God's Word while witnessing Christ in Satan's strongholds.
God's greatness is demonstrated in His provisional care providing for all our needs whether physical or spiritual. Man needed a Savor; Christ came suffered bled and died for our sins and rose for our justifications giving all who believe eternal life.
There is no greater god than the God of this universe.
