THIS IS THE REAL YOU!
(You’re Born Of God)
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE;
1 John 4:4 “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.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
When the Bible says, “You are of God,” it doesn’t mean you’re on God’s side; neither does it mean you’re a God-supporter. It means that you hail from God; your origin is in Him; and because of this, it says you “…have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). This isn’t a promise, but a statement of fact.
You shouldn’t be afraid of anything in this world; you’ve already overcome the world, satan, and his demons. Also, He didn’t say you qualify for this by praying or working hard enough. What God is talking about here is who you are. You’re not an ordinary being; you’re like Jesus.
1 John 4:17 says, “…as He is, so are we in this world.” Jesus was fearless. He had no sense of lack. He lived in absolute mastery and dominion over all things. The same life in him is what He’s given you. The same Holy Spirit that worked in Him when He walked the earth is the same that you’ve received. Therefore, be conscious of who you are in Christ. 1 John 5:4 says, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world…”; that means it makes no difference the challenges or difficulties that you face in this world; you’re a victor, because you’re born of God.
People may say to you, “Oh, you’re not going to come out of this one; everyone who ever faced this situation failed.” That’s because they don’t know the real you; the reason you’ve overcome all things is that you’re born of God, and greater is He that’s in you than he that’s in the world. Hallelujah!
1 Corinthians 3:16 GNB; Deuteronomy 7:7-8; 2 Corinthians 5:21
I’m born of God; greater is He that’s in me than He that’s in the world! Divinity is at work in me; as Jesus is, so am I in this world. I’m not ordinary. I have the life of God in every fibre of my being. I’m what God says I am! I can do all things by His strength and ability that’s at work in me.

Meditate on 1 John 5:5-6: “Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He who came by water and blood–Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.”
