1 John 4:4 (NKJV) You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
If we could ever really get within us what this verse truly is saying, it would change us forever. The Greater One lives within us! Not upon us, like we see in the Old Testament, but really in us. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit live in us. They are not there to do nothing, but to help us in our course of life.
They want us to live the abundant life that Jesus promised us in John 10:10. He said, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Jesus wants His words fulfilled in our lives, and He is the promise that they will be. We need to stop looking at ourselves as just a nobody, or like the world wants to say, “Just a dirt ball.” We need to see ourselves as children of the Most High God, created in His image and likeness! He has placed within us His wisdom and His breath, and as we take time to listen and obey, we can see these things come alive in us.
So today, make a decision to become God inside-minded. See yourself living the abundant life. As you see yourself with God on the inside, it will manifest on the outside. Remember, all things begin in the spirit, and then manifest themselves in the physical. So see yourself as the Word says you are, and watch what God is going to do!
Confession: I see myself as God sees me: A world overcomer, with the Greater One leading and directing my steps. I am God inside-minded, and I see Him doing great things through me!
