God is Greater Than...

GOD IS GREATER THAN...


I John 3:20 "God is greater than our hearts."

Is God greater than our hearts? What does that mean? Is He greater than MY heart?

That verse never "clicked" in my mind before. In doing a study of the word "agape" (supernatural love) this morning, it became clear to me that "God is greater than our hearts" are words of assurance. Words of security. Words of rest.

I KNOW that my heart is sinful and deceitfully wicked. There is no question there. And knowing that about myself brings me to question HOW God will ever be able to really make a difference in me.

Sure I have bursts of spiritual success. They are highlights in my Christian life, but they are not the norm. Sometimes I am victorious for longer periods than other times, but ALWAYS I crash somewhere along my journey. I allow the busyness of life, and my "self" to get in the way. In other words...I fail...often. I can depend on that.

What I have discovered today is that I have given the enemy a victory, another battle already won EVERY time I allow these thoughts to dominate my mind.

Yes, my heart fails me. But God wants me to know, to live in this truth: HE is greater than my heart!

He is able to make the difference. He can put a love for Himself in me that will cause me to never want to let go. He can "turn my eyes upon Jesus". He can take away my selfishness and replace it with His supernatural love. Yes, my God can make a difference in me. His love can make all the difference!

The next time my heart condemns me and the enemy whispers his lies, I will stand firm in this truth. "God is greater than our hearts". I may be "only human", not perfect, and sure to fail, but it doesn't depend on me, does it? God is greater than my heart. It is only mine to believe and trust HIM.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Robin, I thought this was such a good, encouraging message. Well done. Only one tiny thing - it's 1 John 3:20 (not 4:20; I looked it up because I wanted to see the whole passage.) With love, Deb
