Something to think about.
Greater is He
“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.” 1 John 4:4 ESV
Are you empty? Is it just you, are you all alone? Is your life, a life of endless toil? Are you aware of what is available to you? Who is the writer speaking of?
He is speaking of the Spirit of God. You can have the spirit of God in you. To empower your life not to be overcome by the evil forces of this world.
The turmoil of our present political and social situation is quickly becoming overwhelming. Never in my life have I seen such hate being perpetrated. Those who protest do so in hate, those who support does so with just as much hate. The spirit and indeed it is a spirit that underpins and empowers the opposing forces is one of hate. If you are participating in the opposition on either side, I ask you to look into your heart and ask yourself what spirit is in you? If you find yourself hating, associating or aligning yourself with those who hate, you are being led by the spirit of hate. That spirit, that entity is not the mind of God, it is not the spirit that will lead to victory it will lead to destruction.
I remind all who call themselves Christian.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
I am not saying, do not oppose. I am saying do it without the spirit of hate. Oppose in such a way as to bring constructive change. Don’t force change through hate. Hate breeds hate and plants the seeds of divisiveness which will blossom into separatism which grows into hatred which begins the cycle all over again.
Only the Spirit of God that is available to you, which manifest the fruits of the Spirit of God will bring about the positive gainful change you seek.
