He Is Greater

And greater is the One living inside of me than he who is living in the world.

Mercy Me - Greater

Bring your tired
Bring your shame
Bring your guilt
Bring your pain
Don’t you know that’s not you’re name
You will always be much more to me

Every day I wrestle with the voices
That keep telling me I’m not right
But that’s alright

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

Bring your doubts
Bring your fears
Bring your hurt
Bring your tears
There’ll be no condemnation here
You are holy, righteous and redeemed

Every time I fall
There’ll be those who will call me
A mistake
Well that’s ok

There’ll be days I lose the battle
Grace says that it doesn’t matter
‘Cause the cross already won the war
He’s Greater
He’s Greater

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
He’s Greater
He’s Greater

1 John 5:4-5  For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.  5 And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

Satan hates you and wants to kill you. If he can't take your life then he definitely wants to take the life out of you. He loves to make you feel shame and guilt, he wants to defeat you and make you cry, he wants to hear you curse God.

You may wonder why, what in the world did I do to have somebody hate me so bad? You didn't have to do anything. The main reason that Satan hates you is because he hates God and you are the greatest part of God's creation made in his image.

The Lord loves his children and he has plans for us, he has called us to do great things for him and he gives us the strength and courage to do them. God's children have the ultimate source of hope despite our circumstances we know the ultimate victory belongs to our Father.
