You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).
As a baby Christian, I loved to sing this song: Greater is He that is in me, Greater is He that is in me, Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. I really didn’t know what it meant until one day, my toaster wouldn’t work. The kids were eating breakfast, and toast is a big part of an American breakfast, so when I put the bread in the toasting slots, pushed the handle down, and the bread descended (oh so slowly) and the grill did not light up, I was dismayed. I tried to toast the bread numerous times, all with the same result. To my credit I did not immediately try to solve this problem myself by thinking of what else I could serve them. I just focused on that toaster.
Then I thought, “I’ll try some words.” I said, “Toaster, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you work now! Toast this bread and feed these children.” I pushed the handle down again, it went promptly to its spot, and the grill lit up immediately. That toaster worked perfectly for years until I sold it in a garage sale before moving to France.
Jesus is in me. When I invoke His name, all creation must move accordingly and do whatever I have said to do. Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
