19 Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God. 20 Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything. ~ 1John 3:19-20
These 2 scriptures come out of the writer speaking of KNOWING who is a true believer by his actions, his love and his confidence. The entire chapter is very powerful and I would suggest reading it. Here he speaks of standing before the Father. I know many who feel like they do not deserve to even pray, man I’ve been there myself and it is always because of our guilt. There is a huge difference between a believer with guilt before God and a non-believer standing before God with guilt.
AS A BELIEVER we can stand before God with great confidence even is we “feel” guilty. The word say that God is GREATER than our feelings” I don’t know about you but that gives me great confidence!!! The bottom line is “he knows everything” he knows how I feel, He knows my heart, He knows my repentance, He knows my brokenness, He knows EVERYTHING.
This also means I cannot hide anything from Him EVER!! This is another test of true follower of God… I am very thankful for His LOVE!!!
Now go out and have an EPIC day today. .
