{1 John 4:4-6; NLT}

4 But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.5 Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them.6 But we belong to God, and those who know God listen to us. If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception.

Heavenly Father,

You are the Creator of Heaven and Earth, and all authority is Yours. You truly are the Great One. There is no one who can rival You in authority or power. I give You all of my praise and all of my worship, because You alone deserve it.

As amazing as Your power is, it is even more amazing that You love me. It blows my mind to think that You care about what happens to me.Thank You for not abandoning me and leaving me at the mercy of Satan, sin, and death. You have rescued me and You have redeemed me, and my life belongs to You.

I ask Father, that You will give me discernment to see things as they really are, so I will not be deceived by the enemy. When Satan tells me that I am defeated, unwanted, and unloved, remind me of the truth that through You I have victory, that You want me to be part of Your family, and that You love me. Strengthen my faith so I won’t fall for the deceptions of the Enemy, but will instead discover hope in Your promises.

Lord, there is nothing I need to fear, because You are Great One. May I live in the light of that reality. It is in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
