Apostle Grace Lubega
1 John 4:4 (KJV); 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.
The greatest assurance that we, as believers, are different from those of this world is the God in us.
In 1 Peter 2:9, the Bible says, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.”
Christians who do not understand this divine reality always come up on the wrong side of comparisons with non-believers.
When the Bible says that greater is He who is in us, it does not only allude to the greatness of power.
It also means that wiser is He that is in you than he that is in this world. More distinctive is He that is in you than he in the world. More enduring is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
No man who is not in a covenant relationship with God measures up to the believer. Believe it!
You are more influential, capable, intelligent, enlightened and prudent. You embody the multiplication of all aspects of greatness because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You are more influential, capable, intelligent, enlightened and prudent than any man of the world. You embody the multiplication of all aspects of greatness because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I know who I am and who is in me. I live boldly because the greater one is in me. This boldness forms the confession of my lips and the conviction behind my actions, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
