I have a verse that I want to share with you today and encourage you with. It’s out of 1 John 4:16. I’m going to start in verse 15: “If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God.” Verse 16, “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.” I want to encourage you today to rely on the love God has for you.
Think about that word ‘rely.’ This is what I love to do when I’m reading scriptures, is pick out a verse like, God, what does it actually mean to rely on you? Holy Spirit, give me wisdom and revelation to know you more. Like what does it mean to rely on God? And so think about that. When you go out, some of you may go out boating, you wear a life preserver and you’re relying on it to keep you safe if you go in the water. What does it mean when I sit on a chair? I’m relying on that chair to hold me up. And so what does it look like? This is what I want to ask you and to invite you to ask the Holy Spirit in your own way is, ask Him, “What does it look like for me to rely on you more, to rely on your love?” You know, I’m using practical examples, but to rely on love, that’s an intangible thing, and so we’re going to need the Holy Spirit’s help to understand what this verse means. His word is living and active.
And so I want to pray for you right now, that Holy Spirit, would you release revelation? Would you release insight? Would you release practical ways. That He would show you how to rely on His love more and more, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
