TOPIC: Clearing Up Conversation Confusion
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: 1 John 5:10-15
The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son.
And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
In Touch Daily Devotional 25 July 2022 MESSAGE
We have an Enemy who wants to undermine our confidence in salvation. We’ve all been there—joyfully moving along through life, sure of our standing as God’s children, when all of the sudden we sin and our feelings take over. Satan can use our remorse and conflicting emotions to eat away at our assurance. We think, There’s no way I can be saved. If I were truly saved, I would never have done such a thing. Overwhelmed by feelings of regret and shame, we find our faith coming under fire.
It is amazing how effectively our fleeting human emotions can undermine our certainty about God’s promises. We should remember that feelings can be unreliable; the Lord, however, says only what is true and never seeks to confuse us. Anytime your emotions contradict the Word of God, you can be sure the Scriptures are reliable. For a believer, “feeling saved” is like a husband or wife “feeling married.” You either are or you’re not; your feelings do not make it so.
Has a sense of regret stolen your confidence in God’s eternal salvation? Lay your feelings before the Lord today, and embrace the certainty that comes only with His truth. Our loving Father longs for you to trust Him without wavering.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 11-14
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Our feelings can mislead us; confidence comes when we choose to trust what the Word of God says.
