1 John 5:20 (NKJV)
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
When we look at this Scripture we see ‘that we may know Him.’ Do we take the time to truly know Him? We spend hours on the internet or social media, then watch television, and find ways to unwind from the day and then are too tired to read the Bible. Do we truly have an understanding of His love? When we spend time in prayer we open up to Him, yet do we listen? We must pray before we read the Bible so that the words will show us the details we need in growing in His love.
We have to stand under His love to understand His love. We have to see what we are to learn from all aspects of our lives. Learning in the good times is easy, yet learning in the rough times can be more rewarding. Remember Jesus is there at all times to guide us and direct us. He gave His all on the cross and wants you to receive all the love that He has for you.
He has given His all for all to receive and we need to accept all that He has for us. We may have to make adjustments in our daily walk, but what blessing we will receive. Spending time with Him will put a yearning in your heart to spend more time each day with Him. When we are in His presence He is preparing us each day to see all that He has for us. The journey is long as we prepare for eternity.
Your best investment for your future is the time that you invest in spending time with Him. He knows you and truly wants us to know Him.
Thank You God for Your Son, and thank You Jesus for going to the cross. To You be all the glory. Amen.
