“I have written to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one.” –1 John 2:14 NKJV
Have you ever thought about how powerful you are? You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).
And 1 John 5:4 says, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”
What are you supposed to do with all this power? You are to use it for God’s glory and on behalf of those who aren’t yet able to wield it themselves.
God is constantly speaking confidence into His children through His Word. He wants you to know that you have what it takes.
He wants you to know that He has given you the strength to overcome any stronghold in your life. Once you have a revelation of the power you hold, you will become an unstoppable force for the Kingdom of God. When you walk in authority, others will be drawn to your confidence in Christ.
People will start looking at you and wonder why you always carry so much confidence and joy. You will be presented with the opportunity to share how you came to know and believe in Jesus.
You were created for greater things than just living for yourself. Once you grasp the power you have in Christ, you will be capable of doing all He has planned for your life!
- Pray for a revelation of the power and authority you have in Christ.
- Thank God for filling you with His strength to overcome all things.
