Memory Monday – Week 69
While listening to Greater over and over this week and sharing a post about the song last Wednesday, I really wanted to learn more about the scripture the song is referring to, 1 John 4:4, which says “Dear children, you belong to God. So you have won the victory over these people, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
This verse tells us that we belong to God. Because He is victorious over the world, He who lives within us (Jesus) is the greatest of all. No matter what or who we face, Jesus is the ultimate victor. We may have many spiritual enemies, but nothing is as big as Jesus.
1 John 2:15-17 references the spiritual warfare of this world. We can either choose to love the world or love Jesus, but not both. We know we will face spiritual warfare, but we can rest in 1 John 4:4 that Jesus always wins the battle. Christ living in us is greater then the devil who lives in this world. Don’t let your trials overtake you. Stay strong and recognize that He is greater than anything you are facing.
