This is another one of my favourite scriptures because it puts things into simple perspective…
It is easy to become frightened of all the wickedness and hatred in the world, as we see it all around us.
It can also become overwhelming with the problems we face and trying to overcome those things.
This shows that evil is so much stronger than we ever could be.
John assured us in this scripture, however, that God is even stronger. He will conquer ALL evil and the thing that I love is His Spirit and His word live in our hearts.
