You and God Make a Majority

Being in the majority is not always right, but it's a good thing when what's right is in the majority. When someone gains the majority of votes in a campaign, it means that one person received more votes than the other person (s). It doesn't necessarily mean that the winner is right. Can you say Benito Mussolini ? How about Joseph Stalin? God is All Powerful, Ever Present, and All Wise. Pretty good combination of attributes. As Christians, God has become our very own Heavenly Father. His is dwelling/living/abiding in us in the Person of the Holy Spirit.Think about this: Everything God is is in us.

All of us, no matter who we are or where we live, have encountered situations where we've needed help. That doesn't make us weak or sissies, that makes us human. Everyone, at some point, faces moments where the circumstances facing them seem overwhelming. It's in these moments, especially, that we need to be reminded of the fact that we're never alone. In fact, in any given situation-no matter the circumstances-you and God make a majority.

You need to know that for yourself. You need to know that, no matter what is going on in your life-no matter what the devil is trying to throw at you (or already has thrown) the fact that God is with you, for you, and in you-makes all the difference in the world. It doesn't matter how big, strong, rich, educated, or smart you are, you are no match for the devil, by yourself, naturally speaking. But having God on the inside of you changes everything. You go from being in the minority to having a majority, the Holy Spirit in you making this so.

The Bible tells us, in I John 4:4 (towards the end of the Bible, not the Gospel of John) that greater is He (God the Holy Spirit) Who is in us than he (devil and all of his demonic helpers) who is in the world. Having God living in us teaching, helping, strengthening, and being for us puts life in a new light. It assures us that we're never alone, without, or helpless when those challenging moments rear their ugly heads against us. Thank God!

Life is not a political campaign. Majority doesn't always make right. But with God in and working with you, right is a majority. And that makes all the difference in the world.

What difference is it making-or will it make-knowing that God and you make a majority ? What are some areas in your life where this truth can be applied? How reassuring is it to know that you and God make majority-no matter what the circumstances "say?"
