1 John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
A driving instructor in Germany was stopped by police after a minor accident with a truck. When asked for his driver’s license, he couldn’t provide one. He had been instructing students for more than 40 years on how to drive, yet he didn’t have his own license! Years earlier, he had failed a driving test, and he was fearful of trying again. He kept this fact a secret out of embarrassment.
Satan also has a secret in his past that he doesn’t want people to learn about. His secret? He no longer has the power to separate us from God. Our enemy doesn’t want anyone to know this truth because he desires to keep nonbelievers controlled by sin and believers entangled in it.
It’s true that because of sin we were separated from God. But when Jesus died on the cross, He bore all our sins and took on Himself our punishment of death. God then raised Jesus from the dead, and now He reigns in heaven.
When we trust in what Jesus has done for us, a relationship with God begins and sin no longer has control over us. The apostle Paul wrote, sin shall not have dominion over you” Romans 6:14. We are no longer separated from God. We are set free from bondage, Romans 6:18 “Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” Satan’s secret is out in the open; —Anne Cetas
Here are some verses with my favorite book and Chapter of the Bible. Romans 8
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Wow! 🙂 so assuring and very certain. If God be for us who can be against us?
the outstretched hand of God extends
To those weighed down by sin;
He offers to remove the load
And give His peace within. —Sper
God always stands between the Christian and the enemy.
