Living the Christian life is not easy. When we give our lives to Christ, although we want to live for Jesus and forget our old life, we still struggle with the flesh. We still struggle with our old habits.
For some, that may be substance abuse. For others, it may be porn. For others it may managing money. For others, it may be a bad mouth. It could be many things but the fact is, just because we give our lives to Christ, does not mean we don’t struggle any more or face temptation any longer. But, the Bible says that when we do, we have the power given to us by the Spirit of God to help us defeat the devil.
John said, “…You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world” (I John 4:4). John is admitting that Satan is powerful but, Jesus is more powerful.
So, whatever you are facing, Jesus can help you.. Jesus is stronger than any temptation we face. Jesus is stronger than any challenge we may face.
Whatever you are struggling with, give it to the Lord.
You may remember the little song based on this verse. It went;
“Greater is He that is in me. Greater is He that is in me.
Greater is He that is in me. Than He that is in the world.”
Let Jesus handle your problem today.
