Scripture Quote: And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17
Jesus stands in front of us to ever intercede with God Almighty. We know this certainty through the indwelling Holy Spirit that teaches us. Because God loves us so intensely, He delivered His Own Son up to death for our sakes. Would He withhold any good thing that we need? Abraham was also prepared to offer up his son Isaac to God, but God did not require that sacrifice from him. But because Abraham was so faithful and obedient, God blessed Him and multiplied his seed, even up to us in this current generation. God still honors all that was intended by God's promises to His people.
God gives His Believers every blessing that they need. There is nothing in this world that can separate us from the blessing and love of God. Is there a more powerful, wonderful, awe-inspiring fact than that? And the Church, which is founded on the Gospel and the Rock, can never be destroyed by persecution. And what God does for the Church He does for every individual in the body. With the love of God in our hearts, we know that we know that we are His Own forever!
Today’s meditation: Our God is always with us and He is all we need.
Memory Verse: (Hebrews 13:5b) God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
