The Kitchen Table            1 John 5       Day 24

And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

 1 John 5:14-15

Those who live in God’s love ask for God’s love to live in.  The will of God is in the love of God and those who know God’s love will continually ask for God’s love to live in.  They intercede in, with, and for God’s love.  God gives us what He loves as we ask for it.  But there are those who reject God’s love and live in sin that leads to death.  We can’t over-rule their choice and we can’t stop the death of their choices.  We can pray from love for love to come to them.  God loves all men and desires that all would be saved.  Those who are born of God receive the love of God for their lives.  But those who do not receive God’s love cannot know God’s love because they do not believe in God’s love and that brings death into their lives.  We can pray for and possess the life of God if we receive the love of God, but we can’t possess the life of God if we don’t receive the love of God.
