PRAYER: Please pray for that all of us would realize the victory that we have in Jesus.
DEVOTION: “I have written to you who are God’s children because you know the Father. I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong. God’s word lives in your hearts, and you have won your battle with the evil one.”
– 1 John 2:14
Know the Father.
Gods word lives in your heart.
John continues his reason for writing. He continues his longing for us to know why he’s writing. His reasons are strong. His reasons are foundational.
To know the Father, to know Christ, to be strong in faith and have His words living in our hearts. These are things to hold dear to. To strive for. To continue to work on and towards.
It’s a daily walk. Not a sprint. It’s a marathon. A long journey. This walk with Christ. This realization of knowing Him changes every day doesn’t it? There are some days where He seems so distant and others that feel as though He’s closer than the clothes we wear.
That’s all us and our insecurities and our human traits and characteristics. He never leaves. He never moves away from us. He’s always there. Waiting. Wanting to be with us. Closer to us.
Today. Take time to know the Father. To know Christ. To keep his words close to your heart.
