A Secure Relationship
“For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor, thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 AMPC
“But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it], and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:38 AMPC
“For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].” 2 Corinthians 5:21 AMPC
“Therefore, since we are now justified [acquitted, made righteous, and brought into right relationship with God] by Christ’s blood, how much more [certain is it that] we shall be saved by Him from the indignation and wrath of God.” Romans 5:9 AMPC
We as Born-Again Christians belong to God and have (already) defeated and overcome them (the agents of the antichrist), because GOD – the HOLY SPIRIT Who lives in us is greater [mightier] than he (the devil) who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
Brothers and Sisters-In-Christ, do we have any doubts that God really loves us? If we’re uncertain about how He sees us, it would explain some of the anxieties we feel. We see, whenever we fear someone is going to hurt us, we hide our true self from them. We don’t develop the intimate relationship that inspires trust and safety.
Sadly, whenever we do so with our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, we close ourselves off from experiencing the wonderful security, joy, and fulfillment God offers.
But be assured, our heavenly Father God wants to put all our uncertainties to rest so that we can enjoy His freedom. In our Lord Jesus, our eternal life is absolutely secure. He promises, “No one will snatch (you) out of My hand” (John 10:28). Likewise, the Holy Spirit guarantees that nothing in all creation can separate us from His unconditional love (Romans 8:38-39).
Brothers and Sisters-In-Christ, God wants us to have a healthy relationship with Him and enjoy the wonderful blessings He has for us. So let’s seek God’s face and ask Him to reveal His love.
Let’s pray. “Father God, in the name of Jesus, and in the power of the Holy Spirit, reveal Your perfect, unconditional love to us. Draw us closer, drive out our fear, and make our relationship deep, strong, and unshakable, Amen!” Praise our Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you Lord.
