“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4
Too often we give more authority to circumstance than we do to
our God given ability to overcome, learn from and move
through perceived challenges in life. This week remember
that GREATER IS THE ONE who lives in YOU than
the one or thing in the world.
Your experience of rising and
falling depending upon how the world judges you is in
direct proportion to the power YOU give to the outside
circumstance to define your worth, value and capability.
If God is for you…who or what can be against you? Flip
your authority today: Give more authority to the strength of God
within you than you give to the opinions of people around you and
or specific outcomes. Failure is just a label we place on an
undesirable outcome. Think about this for a moment, if
you truly believe that God has plans to prosper you and not to
harm you, to give you hope and a future then whatever pops
up before you can be flipped into positive forward momentum.
What if you take a moment this week before any potential threat
to your sense of safety and ability to overcome and you remember
this simple thought: God has overcome all that I feel has overcome
(or potentially overcome) me in my life…He sees all and is more
than capable of doing more than I can ever ask or imagine for
my ultimate good in this world, I am safe and connected to the
One that is greater than circumstance.
Because of His Love,
