Confident Assurrance - October 26, 2015

John 14:15-17(New International Version)
15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

We long to hear a voice from Heaven, to tell us that God hears us, and is watching out for us. We wonder, what must we do to break free from the troubles and distress of our lives? What assures us that God is listening and working with us through our situation? What gives us the confidence that God cares about us?

If we want to always have God's favor, and know that He will work everything out for us, we need to walk in obedience; we need to live the right way. We need to follow His instructions found in His word and do what He asks us to do. As Jesus said above, our obedience, keeping His commands, shows Him that we love Him. The great thing is that God helps us to be obedient, because His Spirit convicts us when we do wrong, and guides us back to following Him.

Our love for Him, demonstrated by our obedience, guided by the Holy Spirit, will give us assurance that God is will help us work out our troubles, and it will assure us that He cares for us.
