Discipleship | Lesson 7 | Devotion 3

I John 4:4 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.

Yesterday, we talked about the enemy. We saw the importance of understanding our enemy and how to be prepared. While understanding our enemy is important to winning our daily battle, it is more important to know and understand the power of our leader.

There is a constant battle against the Christian and the Christian faith. Christians still experience health problems and financial woes and so much more, but God is greater than all of it. The Christian faith will still face rejection, mockery, and even persecution, but God is greater than all of it.

It may be that you are facing something that seems too great to overcome; take comfort in the fact that God is greater than whatever this world has to offer. We can claim a victory not because we will win every battle, but because we understand that through our faith in Christ, we have won the war for eternity.
