Him in Us

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. Did you hear that? The one who is in you, the Holy Spirit that is alive in you, is greater,  more powerful than anything that is in the world. 
Ephesians 1:18-21
We have the same power that raised Jesus up from the grave.
We have the authority to speak out against the darkness, fear, sickness, death.
It’s Him in us who makes us strong. 
It’s Him in us who makes us brave. 
It’s Him in us who gives us confidence. 
It’s Him in us who gives us eyes to see a hopeful future. 
It’s Him in us who allows us to not worry. 
It’s Him in us who gives us the tools to fight battles bigger than ourselves.
It’s Him in us who helps us to overcome darkness.
It’s Him in us who gives us joy, even in mourning.
So when you feel fearful, in panic, overcome by darkness, know that it’s Him in us who can tackle and overcome all things, not by our strength but His strength in us.
Lord Jesus, I thank you for this truth, I thank you that you’re listening, that you’re closer than I know. Thank you that I can talk to you at any time of the day. Your Holy Spirit that lives in me is my greatest weapon. With your strength, I can overcome anything. Amen. 
When I read this devotion I couldn’t shake the feeling that someone else needed to read it too. I pray that someone finds strength and joy today.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
