“We know that any child of God does not do wrong things. The Son of God keeps him safe and the devil cannot touch him.” (I John 5:18)
My precious children, I am so glad to share God’s word with you. Today we are going to meditate on the promise, which we read in I John 5:18. The verse says “The Son of God keeps him safe and the devil cannot touch him.” You have to just become the child of God; that is all! If you read Psalm 91, verses 1 and 16 say: “1.The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty. 16. I will satisfy him with a long life and show him my salvation.”
What should you do to become the child of God? In The Bible, we read about the family of Elimelech, his wife Naomi and two sons who went to dwell in Moab. The two sons got married while in Moab and one of the daughters-in-law was Ruth. When Ruth came to that house, she saw her mother-in-law always praying to the Lord God Almighty. Ruth was captivated seeing the beauty of worshipping the Living God. Therefore, she told her mother-in-law that she would also follow her ways and worship the same God. Thus, she came under the shelter of The Almighty God. God blessed Ruth and made her to be in the lineage of Jesus.
Do you know what happens when you come under the shadow of The Almighty? He will come and dwell in you. The Bible says in Psalm 132: 13-14 “For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his home.” Yes, God will be with you at all times. We read about it in Matthew 28:20: “I am with you always, to the end of the age.” If you ask the Lord, he will give you this experience even now. Just tell the Lord that you want to become his child and ask him to cover you under his shelter.
My loving heavenly Father,
thank you for this beautiful promise word you have given me today. I humbly ask you to become the Lord of my life and to dwell in my heart. I want to be your child. Lord, cover me under your wings of protection.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
