That is if SSG or SSB is weaker than SS4. Look at how DB Super revealed the power of SSG through Vegeta's battle. His Enraged SS2 state was powerful enough to make Beerus fight at 10% of his power. While Super Saiyan God is only 70% of Beerus' power(7X Enraged SS2 Vegeta). Super Saiyan Blue on the other hand is either 8X or 9X Enraged SS2 Vegeta due to Goku and Vegeta stating that Beerus is still stronger than either one of them(for the sake of the argument lets go with 9X).
In GT however, Base Goku was stronger than his Z Super Saiyan 3 state. Goku states this when he is fighting an opponent who he states is stronger than Majin Buu(we will go with Kid Buu for this one).
Then we get to Baby. After the initial infecting Vegeta, Baby's power surpassed GT Super Saiyan 3 Goku. He since then transformed twice and even when Goku finally stabilized his SS3 state(thanks to his tail) he still couldn't damage Super Baby Vegeta 2 at all. Even Baby states that Goku didn't get any stronger at all(he refers to their first battle while he was in the initial Baby Vegeta form).
Then we skip to Great Ape Baby. It is in the official continuity(Toriyama's) that the Great Ape multiplies a Saiyans max power 10 times(10X). So if Super Baby Vegeta 2 was stronger than GT SS3 Goku then his power was before going Great Ape 400X+(+ because he was stronger) then Base GT Goku. So Great Ape Baby would have been 10X his 400X power which would turn it into 4000X+ Base GT Goku's power.
Now finally we have the Super Saiyan 4 state. Goku at 100% power in this form went against Great Ape Baby who was at 100% of his power as well and defeated Baby. That should tell you that Goku's power at 100% Super Saiyan 4 state is stronger than Great Ape Baby. Which would put his power at 4000X++(double + because he is stronger than GA Baby's 4000X+ power).
Then we have the whole "God Ki vs Mortal Ki" debate. But that doesn't matter because Golden Frieza broke the rule off God Ki because when he transformed the Z fighters were able to still sense him meaning Golden Frieza was still using Mortal Ki but because his mortal Ki was VERY high he was able to damage a being that was using 100% God Ki. Meaning that Mortal Ki can effect God Ki if it is high enough.
So in conclusion Dimps knows that when it comes to actual power that the God forms(SSG and SSB) are weaker than Super Saiyan 4. Which is why they decided to use SSG first and later SSB but then will make the saiyan avatars go Super Saiyan 4 later down the line.
So yeah SS4 > SSG/SSB
You don't have to take my word for it.
When the going gets tough. Combine ideas.
