He Can Use It
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 (NIV)
I want to encourage you today. God has put greatness in you, and He doesn’t make mistakes. If He put it in you, why would He take it away from you? No matter what season of life you're in or what struggles you may be facing, just know God hasn’t left you. Neither has the greatness He put in you.
Be encouraged that the struggles in your life are not always there to be seen as difficulties. Instead, the battles are often placed there to display the greatness of Christ that He has put in you or even better yet, His greatness revealed through you. So that others may see the manifest presence of Christ in your life.
If you are dealing with a difficult situation right now, a struggle that has left you at a loss for words. Please receive this. Focus on how God can use it NOT why it happened. That mindset feeds into a higher purpose NOT confusion and disappointment. The situation doesn’t define who you unless you let it. God determines who you are and when He is enough in your life there is no struggle you can’t overcome. He that lives in you is greater than the one who is in the world. The enemy can’t stop the greatness of Christ that lives in you.
God, you are alive in me, and you have not only made me with greatness, but your greatness lives in me. I declare today that I will not be overcome by struggle and my situation has potential and greatness that is yet to be seen. Jesus, you are my strength and my redeemer. Today I thank you because you are my victory. Amen.
