Bible Verse: 1 John 5 v 13-15 TPT
“I’ve written this letter to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you will be assured and know without a doubt that you have eternal life. Since we have this confidence, we can also have great boldness before him, for if we present any request agreeable to his will, he will hear us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we also know that we have obtained the requests we ask of him”
Paul writing to the Corinthian church encourages us that “no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.” This series of devotions, follows the “movements” for a symphony of prayer, we’ve called Approach, we have seen that the King is Good, we can approach the throne of grace without condemnation, our world can be changed by His uncontainable presence, we can bring bold requests, brave expectations and with tenacious faith, step into all God has for us.
Throughout church history the word Amen has been used to proclaim, strong agreement, a statement let it be so! As we come to the end of these devotions, let’s allow our Amen to resound into the coming weeks.
