1 John 5:5

Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
1 John 5:5 NASB

By faith in You, Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and in need of a Savior. Everyone is a sinner, as Your Scripture reveals, but it also reveals the promise that by faith in Jesus Christ the righteousness of God would be manifested, would be given to those who believe. And those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God overcomes the world. Out of Your love and care for Your creation, You have commanded that we believe in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, Lord God, and love one another. Your commandments are not burdensome but freeing. Thank You for loving me and for Your Scripture that guides me, shows me how to walk in step with You through obedience. To You, Almighty Sovereign God, be glory forever, amen.
Romans 3:22/Galatians 3:22/1 John 3:23 NASB

🌹that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

1 John 4:1-4

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe (do) His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
1 John 5:1‭-‬4 NASB

🌹Jesus, I believe You are the Messiah. I am born of God! I rejoice in You Father for sending Your Son. I love You Father. Thank You for Your great love poured out for me through Your Son whom I love. My being is from You, through You alone. Nothing comes into being apart from You, Jesus, and unless one is born again they cannot see the kingdom of God. I will show my love by my obedience to Your commandments. I will learn from Your Word, my gentle and humble Lord, and find rest for my soul, for Your commandments are not burdensome but light. By faith I shall overcome the world because You who is in me is greater than he who is in the world! Hallelujah!! Abide in me Lord I pray in Jesus name!!!

1 John 4:19-21

We love, because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.
1 John 4:19‭-‬21 NASB

Holy God, You are love. Pure, real unadulterated love. Not just the essence of love but the source of love. Without You no one can love or be loved. Thank You, God, for Your great love for Your creation demonstrated by the sending of Your Son to be the propitiation for our sins. By this we are able to know love, be loved and to love. God You are love. God, I ask forgiveness for my sin. Keep me in Your Light, Lord, practicing truth so I honor You in the keeping of Your commandment to love my neighbor. God, I greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory though I have not seen You but I love You and believe in You. Be glorified in me Lord as You love others through me. Be glorified Holy God. Amen.

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
1 John 4:18 NASB

🌹Magnificent, glorious God worthy of all praise and glory; I enter Your presence with a grateful heart. Your perfect love casts out fear. I did not receive a spirit of slavery leading to fear but a spirit of adoption as Your child by which I cry out, “Abba! Father!” Holy Spirit of God I pray that I may serve, not with a spirit of timidity, which has not been given by You, but with power and love and discipline. Perfect me in Your love, Lord God for Your glory and will be done.  Amen.
Romans 8:15/2 Timothy 1:7 NASB

1 John 4:16-17

We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for (in) us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.
1 John 4:16‭-‬17 NASB

Jesus, Holy One of God, through Your love in me, I have come to know and believe the love You have for me. God, You are love. My desire is to abide in You, so I ask for wisdom in the keeping of Your word, wherein Your love is truly perfected. With Your perfect love abiding in me I pray that I may have confidence in the day of judgment. I pray my actions reflect Your abiding love in me as I strive to walk in the same manner as Jesus walked. Thank You Father God for Your Son Jesus and the glory given Him. Through Jesus Your glory is given to Your people that they may be one, just as You and Your Son are one. May Your abiding love reflect through me to a world in need of the Light of Jesus Christ to Your perfect glory in whose name I pray, amen.
John 6:69/1 John 2:5/John 17:22/1 John 2:6 NASB

1 John 4:13-15

By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
1 John 4:13‭-‬15 NASB

How awesome a God You are! Blessing me with Your Holy Spirit! Thank You, God, for the assurance of knowing You abide in me because of Your awesome gift of the Holy Spirit. I am no longer in the flesh but in the Spirit. I belong to You, Lord God!!!
Under the power of the Holy Spirit I will testify and proclaim eternal life through Jesus Christ who was with the Father and was being manifested to us, the Savior of the world. For You, Father, did not send Your Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. “The one who confesses the Son has the Father also”. For this I am eternally grateful, God. Thank You.
I confess with my mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in my heart that You, almighty God raised Him from the dead! Thank You, Father, for my salvation. In the name of my Redeemer I pray, amen.

1 John 4:11-12

Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us.
1 John 4:11‭-‬12 NASB

No one has ever seen You, God, except Your Son, the only begotten God. Jesus has explained You God. And You abide in Your children who love one another. Lord, perfect Your love in me. Let others see Jesus in me and help me to love as You love, God.
My God, You are the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. You alone possess immortality and dwell in unapproachable light. To You be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.
John 1:18/1 Timothy 6:15‭-‬16 NASB

Have you ever looked at someone and just knew there was something different about them? Almost as if they glowed. Then you come to find out they are a child of God? I have experienced and heard of multiple experiences like this from others. Could this be seeing God abiding in others?

🌹By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

1 John 4:9-10

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:9-10 NASB

Father, God of extravagant love that exceeds the bounds of custom. This love manifested in me through Your Son, the only one of His kind, I will practice along with truth so that Your works might be displayed in me. I live, truly live because I am saved by Jesus. I have set my seal to this, that God is true! God, You demonstrated Your love for me, in that while I was a sinner, Jesus Christ died for me. I also exult in You, Father through my Lord Jesus, through whom I have received reconciliation! Jesus Himself is the satisfaction for my sin. Thank You, God, for Your great love for me that now dwells in me through Jesus. Jesus, I pray You will manifest Yourself in me so I may display Your attributes and bring glory to Your name. And . . . speak truth so others may come to salvation in You, Jesus. In Your name I pray, amen.
John 9:3/John 3:21,33/Romans 5:8,10/1 John 2:2 NASB

🌹And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

1 John 4:7-8

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
1 John 4:7‭-‬8 NASB

🌹God, how wonderful it is to know You! You are Creator of all, all things came into being through You, and apart from You nothing came into being that has come into being. You are the King of kings and the Lord of lords. God You are love and all who know You are born of You. Without You we are unable to love because love is from You. With Your love in me I am able to love others just as You have instructed. How wonderful to know that if I or anyone loves You, God, we are known by You. All praise and glory to Your name for You God are love. Thank You for loving me. Amen.

1 John 4:4-6

You are from God, little children, and have overcome them (spirit of the antichrist); because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
1 John 4:4‭-‬6 NASB

🌹God of all knowledge and wisdom, I come before You seeking knowledge and understanding of Your ways as I walk in this world. Abiding in You, I know that I can discern the spirit of truth from the spirit of error because greater are You who is in me than he who is in the world. I pray, Lord God, that I will always proclaim Your truth to others in a spirit of truth. I pray for those who know You Lord God to listen carefully to You so they can discern the spirit of truth from the spirit of error. Thank You God for loving and instructing Your children. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
