“And I ask not only for these disciples, but also for all those who will one day believe in me through their message. I pray for them all to be joined together as one even as you and I, Father, are joined together as one. I pray for them to become one with us so that the world will recognize that you sent me. For the very glory you have given to me I have given them so that they will be joined together as one and experience the same unity that we enjoy. You live fully in me and now I live fully in them so that they will experience perfect unity, and the world will be convinced that you have sent me, for they will see that you love each one of them with the same passionate love that you have for me.” (John 17:20-23 TPT)
I was having brunch with a mighty young man yesterday, he genuinely loves the Lord and seems to know the Bible better than most I’ve met. Anyway, he told me a story of how he once saw a horrible demon cringing before the presence of GOD in tremendous pain, and it got me thinking.
Jesus tells us quite clearly that we are all conjoined together with GOD as He’s Living ‘in us’ … that being the case, then why don’t we relax and let our Father take care of the bogey men that we see out there?
“Even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have! Your authority is my strength and my peace. The comfort of your love takes away my fear. I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.” (Psalms 23:4 TPT) ❤️
