You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
World War II marked the beginning of the modern spy age. Governments entrenched themselves in intelligence and counter-intelligence games, seeking to learn all they could of the opposing countries’ military plans.
Powerful military leaders such as Rommel, Patton, and Bradley were intensely examined by their foes. Scrutiny was not limited to their military knowledge, but to all facets of their lives, professional and personal. The reason? To find a weak point that the opposition could use to undermine and defeat the leaders’ objectives.
This same tactic has been used since the beginning of time in the spiritual realm. Satan cannot change the believer’s eternal destiny, so he attempts to destroy our witness and walk. Satan SEEKS OUT our weaknesses, areas where we are vulnerable. He does not waste much time tempting us in areas where we experience little difficulty.
It is times like these when 1 John 4:4 enables us to feel victorious. Satan is not omniscient. He is limited in his powers and abilities. However, there is no limit to God’s ability to thwart Satan’s objectives and provide overcoming grace for every weakness.
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for grace that helps me overcome every weakness.
