We Are Overcomers
By Rusty Wilson
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
Jesus said in John 16:33, These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace, In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. The last part of the verse in the Amplified version says … [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]
As we noticed the last and most important part Jesus said, I have overcome the world. That is the answer and the end result. As we see in 1 John 4:4, John tells us that we are of God and have overcome them: because greater is He (Jesus) that is in you and me, than he that is in the world. As the body of Christ, we are of God, Jesus overcome the world therefore we have overcome the world. Jesus made us overcomers. Praise God!
The devil tries to put thoughts in our head to think about and by showing us the things that are going on in the world and tries to cause us to have fear. What we have to do is refuse to think on it and tell the devil “NO”, I have already overcome through Jesus, because greater is He that is in me, than you devil and any other that is in the world.
Let us also remember what James 4:7 says, Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. When the devil comes to us we need to resist him by turning and submitting ourselves to God and drawing closer to Him and as we do and resist the devil, he will flee from us.
