1 John 5:15, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
Insight & Encouragement
I have been absent a few days, had a little trouble with the blog site, but we are back up and running. The confidence we are able to have in the security of approaching our Lord, is something we should all be thankful for. There are few people here on earth that we can have complete confidence in approaching us, and that no matter what know they hear and care for us. The love that Christ has for His children is unlike any love here on earth, it is beyond our understanding. When we sit and think, why does God love us so much? How can He love each of us, and care for each of us like He does? These are questions that one day we will find out when we are with Him in our heavenly home, but until then we can study them and get an idea of His love when we read and study His word. The scripture remind us over and over of the Lord’s steadfast love, His gentle love, how He loved us even when we were sinners, and how He loves us so much He sacrificed His own Son for us. This Thanksgiving season take time to reflect on His word, and how He has taken care and loved you.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your unfailing love. I am so thankful to you for the confidence I can rest assured in knowing you have my life in your hands. Thank you for your plans in my life, and I pray today for guidance and direction down each path. I know without you I am nothing, but with you I am capable of so much more than I ever imagined. In your name I pray, Amen.
