The Kitchen Table 1 John 3 Day 15
By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; 20 for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. 21 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 22 and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. 1 John 3:19-22
Those who know God know that His love is great for us than our own love for ourselves. God’s love is greater than our condemnation. We know in when we have sinned, our heart screams injustice. But God loves us more than we can love ourselves and His love brings mercy. God’s word is greater than our own thoughts, bringing us hope and help. We’re grabbing onto His words. If we can overcome the condemnation of our own hearts we can live in the confidence of God, and we can. And we will go to Him in prayer because we know that He loves us and wants to show us the depths and lengths of that love. Believe it!
