1 John 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.
We all have times when we feel like we're surrounded by difficulties, surrounded by a sickness, or surrounded by debt. When you're in a difficult time, the enemy will do a lot of talking. He'll tell you, "I have you surrounded. You're never going to get well. You've had this addiction for so long that you'll never break it. You're never getting out of debt. No matter how hard you work, you'll never get the promotion. You're stuck." Don't believe those lies. The enemy thinks he has you surrounded, but the Most High God has him surrounded. God knows every attack, every difficulty, every unfair situation that's going to happen.
When you feel like you're surrounded, come back to the place of peace and say, "I know my God is still on the throne, and He is surrounding what's surrounding me. He's bigger than this opposition, greater than this sickness, and more powerful than these enemies. I will not be discouraged or worried. The forces for me are greater than the forces against me."
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You know everything that the enemy brings against me and surrounds me with. Thank You that You are bigger, greater, and more powerful than any of these enemies. I believe that the forces for me are greater than any that are against me. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
