Can anyone defeat God? If not–then–can anyone defeat His children? When we are IN Christ, the Bible says that ALL of HIM is in us; therefore, no one should ever be able to defeat us–right? The Bible says: “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.” (‭Colossians‬ ‭2:9-10‬) http://bible.com/59/col.2.9-10.esv Wow! If we, as God’s children, are filled with the FULL power of The Deity, how can we EVER be defeated? If we are living in defeat, then we are living in some level of ignorance about the magnificent power of Christ which resides within us. Or, maybe we just don’t believe the truth about His power enough to pursue it. Either way, if we desire to live in God’s power–we must humble our heart.

When our heart is humble, Christ’s power is manifested within because we recognize how much we need Him. We draw closer to Him. As we do, we grow in HIS power and wisdom. We recognize the wiles of the enemy as he tries to deceive us into believing we are powerless. God’s Word says: “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.” (Colossians‬ ‭2:6-8‬)

As we pursue a relationship with God–He roots us like a mighty oak; He establishes us in wisdom far beyond our own; He makes us stronger than we are on our own. We live unshaken and undefeated. When I’m feeling defeated, it’s usually a heart problem–meaning–I’ve strayed from total dependence upon God. The humble prayer of the Psalmist reminds me that I am nothing WITHOUT Him and everything WITH Him! “Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (Psalms 73:25-26)
