Re:Verse passage – 1 John 5:14-15 (day two) 

This is the confidence which we have before Him vs. 14a

To be confident in something means there is a sense of expected outcome. To whatever degree you know how things will turn out will strengthen your resolve when facing a challenge or task. We are reminded in this passage that to be in the will of God is to have a surety that can come from nowhere else. It is this reason that when Jesus was praying for his disciples and for all believers that we be one with the Father. John 17

Jesus did not want us to be uncertain of our future or to fret over how to manage life. His desire was for us to rest in the unity we have through the Holy Spirit with the father and the son. Through this we will gain the confidence to face and overcome whatever lies before us. If you find yourself lacking the confidence you think you should have, step back, seek God’s perfect will and lean into that above everything else.
