… Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this vast army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
When they began singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were defeated.

Psalm 8:2 … Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants{children of the Lord} You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
Matthew 21:15-16 … But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants{children of the Lord} You have perfected praise’?

  • * the “voice of the Lord” is here the thunder that accompanies a violent storm. The psalm depicts the Lord in the role of a warrior-king, so the thunder is his battle cry
  • * the Lord coming in the storm to do battle with his enemies and to vindicate his people
  • * here the Lord is depicted as elevated above and sovereign over the raging waters{roar!}

1 John 4:4-6 AMP
4 Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.
5 They proceed from the world and are of the world; therefore it is out of the world [its whole economy morally considered] that they speak, and the world listens (pays attention) to them.
6 We are [children] of God. Whoever is learning to know God [progressively to perceive, recognize, and understand God by observation and experience, and to get an ever-clearer knowledge of Him] listens to us; and he who is not of God does not listen or pay attention to us. By this we know (recognize) the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error.


Notice the “ground” of the overcomes’ victory
The Spirit of Truth –
Jn 4:24,16:13
A firm foundation
Jesus Christ the Rock of ages –
Is 26:4
A firm place to stand.
Ps 40:2

Be careful who you listen to, choose wisely
There are only 2 places to stand!

Greater is He who lives in the children of God
=> than He who is in the world.

John 10:27-29 AMP
27 The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater and mightier than all [else]; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of the Father’s hand.

1 John 2:26-27 AMP
26 I write this to you with reference to those who would deceive you [seduce and lead you astray]. 27 But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him], just as [His anointing] has taught you [to do].

Our God is Greater

March 14, 2015

The scripture and song below were on my mind this week.

Isaiah 41:10 AMP
10 Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

Our God is Greater! by Chris Tomlin

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other. Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us.
And if our God is with us, then what could stand against.

When you are afraid
Remember who is with you!

If you look at your difficulties and know you can’t
=> Remember God is with you and He can!

If many appear to be against you and you feel weak
=> Remember God is with you and He is not only strong
=> He is more than able! –Eph 3:20-21

God is greater than our greatest problem or difficulty!

Today be encouraged and don’t be afraid or discouraged
=> Remember how much the Father cares for the sparrow.


Matthew 10:29-31 AMP
29 Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s leave (consent) and notice.
30 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows.
