Good morning.


Our Father intends for us to have the same sense of security as a newborn baby. Newborn babies have the wonderful ability to fall asleep anywhere, untroubled by worry or fear.


But have you noticed how that sense of peacefulness changes by the time babies are toddlers? They often cry over small disturbances and are unwilling to leave a parent’s side. Their situation has not changed. They have the same safety and protection they enjoyed as infants, but they’ve lost their feeling of assurance.


Doesn’t this also describe us when we are hesitant to believe our Father's promises? From the moment of salvation, we enjoy a permanent relationship with God. But at times, we struggle to fully understand and embrace this. He wants us to be certain of our relationship with Him through Jesus.


Certainty about our salvation doesn’t come from applying human logic. It is a matter of faith. John reminds us that we can have confidence in the finished work of Christ. "I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us." (1 John 5:13-14)


Have a good day. "For we live by faith, not by sight." (2 Corinthians 5:7)


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
