The One Who is in You…by Billy Graham


1JOHN 4:4 NIV – 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.

Complete Victory

Paul once wrote, “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other; so that ye can not do the things that ye would” (Galatians 5:17). This is the battle or the tension that is present in us to a greater or lesser degree. So, you see, the spiritual lag that you feel is explained in the Bible. That does not mean that you accept it as the way it should be. You should make all necessary preparations for this battle which the Bible says “is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual forces.”

In Ephesians 6 we read that the Bible tells what preparation you should make. In the meantime, always remember that “where sin abounds, grace did much more abound.” You can have complete victory! We are told to submit ourselves unto God, and the devil will flee from us. We are also promised that “sin shall not reign over us.”

Daily Prayer

Lord, like Paul I battle daily with Satan. I submit everything in my life to You, knowing that already the fight has been won.

Prayer of the Day – October 31st


“Make me to hate evil and to cling to that which is good. Take away my heart of stone, and give me a heart of flesh. Deliver me from my idols. Take away my love of sin. Put your Spirit within me, and cause me to walk in your way.”

Give to me the pilgrim spirit I must have to be in the world, but not of it. Give me grace to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul. May I always obey my heavenly calling.

This is important for those who worry too much about world affairs.  World events cannot happen unless God allows it.  I will not be caught doubting His grace to carry me through.  His kingdom is not of this world, but within us.  I will stay close to Him so that none of this superfluous stuff can hurt me.
