Greater is He that is in You

based on the LGG Study, The Armor of God, w1d5

Scripture: 1 John 4:4-6 / SOAP: verse 6

We are from God; the person who knows God listens to us, but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit.

1 John 4:6

This passage, particularly verse 4, always reminds me of the song, “Greater is He that is in Me” or at least of the first verse, which highlights the Ephesian passage we studied earlier in our previous posts; and the chorus, which is actually patterned after verse 4 of today’s passage from 1 John. Read them, sing them if you know the tune (if not you might want to look it up), I sing the song often when I find myself challenged or up against the enemy and it truly helps.

Verse One:

Satan’s like a roaring lion roaming to and fro’

Seeing whom he may devour, the Bible tells us so

Many souls have been his prey to fall in some weak hour

But God has promised us today His overcoming power.


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.

Because we are God’s children His Spirit lives in us and gives us understanding of the Scriptures. This understanding empowers us who are saved or being saved but it seems like mere foolishness to those who are not saved. This is helpful knowledge as we face a myriad of tactics by the enemy and his armies, tactics that require us to be alert and ready. Being ready and alert with the truth we will be able to identify “the spirit of deceit”; and as John describes here, we will recognize those who belong to God and possess the Spirit of truth and those who do not.
