We Come to Know

So we have come to know 
and trust the love God has for us...
We realize that our life in this world 
is actually His life lived in us. 
1John 4
I know this is basic Bible,
but the truth of it has impacted me this morning.
We "come to know" and we trust 
the love that God has for us.
And we become fully aware that our life
is really His life lived in us.
The more we come to know Him, 
and the more we come to trust Him, 
the more His life is expressed through ours.
Every day is an opportunity to "come to know HIm" more.
The next verse says that 
there is no fear in love.
When fear is present, we are not living  His life.
I must "come to know" His love more
if I am not expressing His life.
Lord, how do You want to live Your life today?
By Your mercy and grace, fear will submit to love.
Any part of my mind that is not sound
will submit to the spirit that You gave me.
You did not give us a spirit of fear, 
but of power and love and a sound mind.
I rest in Your power today.
I rest in Your love today.
And pray that Your power and love
would garrison my mind so that is sound.
I just want to re-present You accurately
to everyone I encounter today.
That my life in this world-- 
this present day now world that I live today--
is, actually, Your life lived in me.
I need a greater revelation of 
Your great love and how to stay
deeply connected to You all day long.
I know this is according to Your will,
so I trust that this request 
is Your delight
to answer.
