"If we love one another, God dwelleth in us," (I John 4:12)
When you get accustomed to God dwelling in you, your whole personality undergoes a change. Those things once impossible, become possible. Where you could not love, you begin to love. Where you could not exercise faith, there you begin to exercise faith. There is no defeat for you when you believe in the Son of God. Say to yourself in faith, "There is no defeat for me, but I will rise from height to height and reach the place which the saints reached. I will reach the inheritance of the saints. I will pray in wisdom and according to God's will and one day see perfection. I will walk hand in hand with my Lord. Then I will become one with Him." Let this be your sure hope. When you are filled with the love of God and you are adorned with the holiness of God, it is thus the Bride of Christ looks beautiful. "This is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us:" (I John 5:14). You come to a place when your confidence reaches perfection.
At the time of failure, He comes to help you. I John 5:15. This is very difficult to understand. A man called Bevington was once dying. The Doctors gave him up. He was an evangelist and he was not taking proper care of himself in the house where he stayed. When he was dying he asked everyone to leave his room. He was fainting, but put his finger on this verse and pleaded. 'If we ask according to His will, we know we have received what we want.' The fainting man regained consciousness. He put his finger on this verse and prayed on. Suddenly healing came and he jumped out of his bed. The hostess was frightened. But Christ had healed him. We should never be discouraged but claim victory over every weakness. Be perfect! Supply the white linen to the Bride. Know that your Lord is the real Lord. How clearly this faith manifests itself in your personality! How bold, courageous, hopeful and joyful you will be! Say that you will obey the commandments, love your enemies and be like your Master! Say that you will be completely victorious!
