Someone Greater than me

The quote that I often fall back on, especially when I am scared is, “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.” John 4:4 The reason I use this quote a great deal is that it helps me to overcome my fears when I know Jesus (the greater someone) is with me and in me and so I don’t have to be afraid.

I began using this quote because as a new college student many years ago, I got scared while in a classroom. I watch what I thought was a very scary film (I don’t even remember what it was) and I freaked out. A good Christian friend came up to me and told me about this verse in the Bible and then prayed with me. It really helped me to put things in perspective. So now I repeat this verse and pray to the Greater One–Jesus whenever I am scared by something or someone.
