How to be God-Protected

25 Jan

God’s Word: 1 John 5:13-21

God’s Message to Me: (My interpretation of what God is saying to me through these verses)

You who believe in Jesus can know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that you have eternal life.  Your belief in Jesus, as having come from My presence, initiates you into the God-begotten family.  My family members can enter My presence with boldness and freely, asking according to My will and know that I am listening.  When my will and your will are in unity—it shall come to pass.

When you see a fellow believer sinning, pray, asking for Me to help them overcome and I am eager to respond to that prayer.  There is a difference between doing something wrong and making a practice of doing wrong.  My God-begotten do not make a practice of sinning—that is the fatal sin.  You who are God-begotten are also God-protected.  The Evil one can’t lay a hand on you.  I have you in My firm grip of safety.

To recognize Jesus as God’s Son means you recognize and understand the truth of God.  What a gift that is.  To believe in Jesus is to live in truth because Jesus is both true God and real life.  These people are My God-begotten children and live under My God-protection.  But never take this honor for granted, always be on guard against all clever facsimiles The evil one is as a wolf in sheep’s clothing—always trying to turn you away from My truth.

God’s Question for Me: Does your life serve as a testimony to the benefits of being God-begotten?

God’s Promise to Me: The God-begotten are also the God-protected.

My Song to God:  I know whom I have believed   Daniel Whittle 1883

I know not why God’s wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own.

Refrain:
But “I know Whom I have believed,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against that day.”

I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word
Wrought peace within my heart.

I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.

I know not what of good or ill
May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days,
Before His face I see.

I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I walk the vale with Him,
Or meet Him in the air.
