John 16:25-33 New Living Translation (NLT)


Jesus has brought so many gifts to believers, but the greatest gift of all is the ability to have a new relationship with our Heavenly Father.  Before Jesus it was impossible to approach God on a personal level; people could only connect with God through priests.  After the resurrection of Jesus Christ, whosoever will believe in Christ can connect with Almighty God and enjoy fellowship.  We can talk directly with Father—the Creator.  So, whatever is going on in your life—blessings as well as challenges—enjoy a conversation with Father, today.  He waits for your visits and will always leave you feeling comforted and valued.


John 16, 25-33

25 “I have spoken of these matters in figures of speech, but soon I will stop speaking figuratively and will tell you plainly all about the Father. 26 Then you will ask in my name. I’m not saying I will ask the Father on your behalf, 27 for the Father himself loves you dearly because you love me and believe that I came from God. 28 Yes, I came from the Father into the world, and now I will leave the world and return to the Father.”


29 Then his disciples said, “At last you are speaking plainly and not figuratively. 30 Now we understand that you know everything, and there’s no need to question you. From this we believe that you came from God.”


31 Jesus asked, “Do you finally believe? 32 But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when you will be scattered, each one going his own way, leaving me alone. Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me. 33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”



Prayer: Lord, I pray for a good day; a day filled with the revelation of your presence and goodness with me.  Thank you for the freedom to bring my heart and whatever is on it to you.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
