Weekly Devotionals 2006
 
Week 32
 
“Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.”    1 John 3: 21-22
 
The commandments have been a public issue in the United States for some time. For us the Law is a measure of right and wrong. When John speaks here of “our hearts does not condemn us” he is addressing the heart attitude of a true believer in Jesus Christ (Last weeks devotional). It isn’t referred to a perfect life, but of one that is walking in fellowship with Christ.
 
We spoke about confession last week. This Holy Spirit led practice for the Christian helps us to maintain uninterrupted fellowship with the Lord. This is the way of confidence before a Holy God. Confession and confidence describe the heart life of a true believer.
 
As my Pastor shared recently, the word “before” in the verse above, means “face toward” in the Greek. How wonderful this is to know. Remember Exodus 33: 8-11 where Moses was “face to face” with God? In 2 John 12 he tells his brethren that he would rather travel to see his friends “face to face.” That’s the kind of relationship we have with the Lord!
 
A promise comes with this message. “In whatever we ask of Him we receive.” More specifically the promise is tied to 2 essential truths: 1) keeping His commandments 2) doing what pleases God. It’s all about God, not me! Not my will but His will. Obedience is a key to understanding. (See John 15:10)
 
QUESTIONS TO PONDER
When you pray do you ask only for things that are pleasing in God’s sight?
Will what you ask for accomplish His purposes and not necessarily your own?
 
These are the proofs of our faith. May we be in accord with Christ alone and always!
Blessings dear ones,
Sandra Davis for all of us at the ministry center (WinD)
