The One in us is greater than the one who is in the world. Christ is greater than any problem, temptation or trial that may come against us. Instead of walking by fear, we walk by faith because of the overcomer who dwells in our hearts.
In the past, we may have attempted to build walls to protect us from the attacks of the enemy. These walls ended up isolating us and keeping us away from divine opportunities. We may understand that Christ is greater than what comes against us; but it’s when we comprehend that He is greater in us that walls can come down and our fear is conquered. Walls built from fear do not bring protection, but hinder us from the victorious position we have in Christ. The presence of the Lord in our lives is enough to protect us from all the fiery darts of the enemy. His presence in us enables us to stand as champions in His name because we have on the whole armor of God.
When we take a look at what’s in us, we come face to face with our humanity and question our divine identity. It’s then that we have to recognize the treasure we have as earthen vessels: Christ Himself in us, with us and for us, from glory to glory!
1 John 4:4 “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.”
