If we follow and obey Jesus Christ and do what is pleasing to Him then we have peace in our hearts, and we have CONFIDENCE to go to Him in prayer. When we pray, we know that He hears our prayers and that He answers our prayers.
If we closely follow Jesus Christ and look after our relationship with Him, then we know that He will never leave us and He will never forsake us. It does not matter what is happening in the world around us, it does not matter what our circumstances are; we can be in the darkest of places, in the most difficult situations, but Jesus is with us and we have CONFIDENCE, we have peace in our hearts because we know that Jesus Christ is in us, and nothing can happen to us, that He does not allow, or that He does not approve of, because Jesus Christ is with us. But if we go away from Jesus, if we disobey Him, if we live in sin and rebellion, then we do not have confidence to go to Jesus; we do not have His peace in us, we live in fear and uncertainty and the Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin, of our wickedness and we feel that we are always in grave danger, and anxiety. If our relationship with Jesus Christ is not right then we are in danger of Hell fire.
There’s only one safe place in this whole world and that is to be close to Jesus. Jesus in you, you in Him and His peace and His power abiding in you. How is your relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you in His piece and in His confidence? Are you doing what is pleasing to Him? Do you follow Jesus Christ every day? Is Jesus Christ real to you?
May Jesus bless you.
