Confidence In God

Good Monday Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Confidence In God”

1 John 5:14-15 King James Version (KJV)

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Further Thought:  Today’s passage reminds us what God is listening for, and that is you and I voice activating the will [that’s what a testament is]; his Son, Jesus, left us.  When we come to God based on today’s passage, we have eliminated all doubt and unbelief.  We know what the will says, and we acknowledge it.  We also believe it and now have come to God in the authority of Jesus Name to receive what grace has provided.  Let’s recognize that our faith [truth, confidence in Jesus, in the Word of God] sets the will [what’s been provided in both the old and the new testatment] into motion, allowing us to appropriate [lay hold, take ownership of] what grace has already provided.  Yes, your faith grants you access to what God provided by grace through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

Have a great day and keep chewing on God’s Word.
