Greater than it all
1 John 4:4 – You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.
I feel as though this is one of the most comforting verses in the Bible when going through a tough time.
Do you remember in Mathematics class at school when you were taught about < and >? Less than and greater than. To be honest I found the whole thing really stupid and pointless, but it was so easy to understand that I didn’t mind a < and > question coming up in my exams.
This verse is essentially telling us that God is > everything else in the world. There’s no problem, no tragedy, no loss and no disappointment that can ever be greater than the greatness of our God.
Our God is greater than anything the world has to offer – whether it be positive or negative. His love is bigger, His favour is wider and His faithfulness is deeper. Nothing can even come close to comparing to His greatness and His goodness.
So rest your soul today in knowing that your Father in Heaven is > than the mountain you’re currently facing.
