1 John 4:4-6

After reading through this verse this morning I am reminded about my fears. A handful of years back I had an experience where I was faced with evil, the evil that scares you to your bones. I was journaling the other day and had a God moment where I realized, at that time the fear of evil I had encountered had caused me to pull back from God and our relationship. I didn’t trust nor believe God was big enough and great enough to actually overcome the evil I feared. As verse 4 tells us “the ONE who is in YOU is GREATER” Praise God as he has drawn me back closer to Him.

The question that comes to me is If I say I am a Christ follower and believe in His saving blood but don’t trust or believe He is great enough to handle the evil I encounter, am I saved because of the doubt I had carried with me? I am not sure I believe what I thought but if I doubt any aspect of God's love for me what does this say.

I praise God he brought me to these scriptures to help me see how God lives within me and He is greater than anything I will ever face.
