Greater is He that is in You!

George Whittenby George Whitten

1 John 4:4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

While John warned against deception in the last days, and we should be mindful and discerning the times in which we live, keenly aware of the rise of the spirit of Antichrist — he also gave us encouragement: “…you have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

The children of Israel failed their tests in the wilderness because they consistently forgot who their God was — and is! Since He actually dwells within us now, let’s not repeat their mistake!

So, being an over-comer in these last days is not only knowing who your enemy is – BUT NEVER forgetting who YOUR GOD IS! Spend your weekend resting in the peace and confidence that greater is He that is in you, and that no evil of any kind can gainsay the victory that He has already won.

Your family in the Lord with much agape love

Messiah In Tears

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

The Hebrew word Immanuel or in English Immanuel is actually a sentence: Im means ‘with,’ anu means ‘us,’ and El means ‘God’. God is with us. Messiah’s name is not just a name, it’s a Hebrew sentence. Whatever He did in His life, He was ‘God is with us’ doing it. In John 11 it says, “Messiah, wept.” Messiah in sorrow and tears was Immanuel in sorrow and tears. That spells out a message— “God is with us in sorrow and tears.”

Having God in your life doesn’t mean you’ll be exempt from sorrow and tears, but it means you’ll never be alone. God will be with you in all things, at all times. Even when you feel far from His presence, His presence is never far. For God is with you in your sorrows and tears. Even in your deepest pain, He will be just as much there as He ever was, and even more so. You will find that if you look, He is there as Immanuel weeping with you and loving you, just beyond your tears.

Today’s Mission – Spend time in the presence of God today. Be still and know that He is with you in all things.
