A True Believer Never Stands Alone

“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.” I John 4:4 (KJV)
It is a tremendous thing to be a child of God. When one exercises faith in the shed blood and finished work of Jesus Christ, instantaneously that person is born of God, and instantaneously he takes up dwelling in God, and God dwells in him. That very moment he becomes partaker of Divine nature, possessor of the Holy Spirit, and seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, sealed with the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption.
In this verse (1Jn. 4:4) we have assurance that the relationship between the believer and God guarantees victory. The believer belongs to God, God belongs to the believer. He is our Father, we are His children, and Jesus is our Savior. We are heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus. We may sometimes think that we are standing alone. There may be times when it seems that we are the only person in our community who is truly saved, and therefore we think we face the opposition of the enemy alone; but be not discouraged, for every true believer together with God forms a majority over any crowd.
The Holy Spirit within us is greater than the spirit of Antichrist in the world around us. God in us is greater than the devil and all the demons of hell combined.
