“All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.” (1 John 4:15)
Dear friend, today’s promise is from 1 John 4:15, “All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.” When we declare we believe in God, God will live in us and we in Him. I remember reading a story of a prisoner whose life changes in prison. This person went through a lot of abuse when he was a child and all this was right at his home. So he started doing all the wrong things like drinking, using drugs and even went to murder someone.
Finally he was convicted for life imprisonment. But when he was in prison his life changed. He felt like nobody loved him for even his own family did not come to visit him in prison. He thought his life was over. But that’s when he found about Jesus and learnt that God gives second chances. Even though he was such a sinner he knew that Jesus would accept him if he declared His name.
So he declared it saying, “Lord I need You. Fill my life and I want to be Your child.” The Lord changed his life and made him a new person. The Bible says in Romans 10:13, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” In the same way, no matter what you are facing today, no matter what situation you are in, just call on the Lord and you will be saved. The Lord will surely welcome you with open hands. “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” (Acts 16:31) The Lord will not just save you but also your family. So commit your life to the Lord today.
I declare that You are my savior Lord Jesus. Just like the prisoner I am committing my life into Your hands. No matter who loves me or not, I know You love me and I love You Father. Thank You for You are always with me and I will always trust You. Help me live a transformed life from today.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
