Abide

I’m a little tired this evening, so this post will be brief. I thought I would share a Bible verse that really encouraged and challenged me today:

So this verse states three important principles, from my perspective:

  1. We have to know that God loves us;
  2. We then have to believe that the Lord loves us – mere knowledge is not enough; and
  3. Armed with this truth, we then must rest (abide) in God’s love for us, and enjoy a growing and thriving relationship with Him.

Know, believe, rest.

Know, believe, rest.

Know, believe, rest.

It’s not easy by a longshot, but trusting and abiding in God’s love and concern for us is always the right thing to do.

Dear Jesus, when doubts begin to assail me, remind me that I know that You love me; I believe that You love me; and I choose to rest in that knowledge, and relinquish worry from my life. In Your name I pray, Amen.
