“But you belong to God, my dear children. 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.” 1 John 4:4 NLT
Many people go through life wondering who they are. Who is my father? Who is my mother? These questions of identity cause many hearts to hurt. We must know, however, know to whom we belong. We are of God. We belong to Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. Doesn’t that make your heart sing and put a smile on your lips?
Accompanying this ownership is the ability and the authority to overcome every attack of the enemy. Why? Because the battle is not ours, it belongs to the Lord! The battle belongs to the Lord because we belong to the Lord! We are of God. God has put His Spirit within us and has equipped us to be overcomers and more than conquerors. Hallelujah!! What a God!
We must remember daily that we are not of the world. Others may be, but we, children of the Light, are not. We are of God. We must behave like Him. Speak like Him. Walk like Him. Think like Him. We are of God. We have the mind of Christ and the anointing to be conformed to His image.
Today as you meditate on the text, let the love of the Father saturate your being and flow to others.
Father, thank You for making me Your very own. Thank You for being my God and Owner. You are the best Father that anyone could ever hope for. I appreciate all that You do and I am confident that You will take care of me for I am Your child. Amen.
