KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 13:3 KJV “Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;”
Our key scripture informs us about certain things that the Lord Jesus knew. He knew that the father had put all things in His hands. He also knew He came from the father and will be going back to the father.
To know the truth is to be free. John 8:32. The strength of the enemy is to place men in darkness. Darkness is basically ignorance. The three points of insight the Lord Jesus had were very important matters that really make a man free.
First, He knew that the father had put all things in His hands. One major shortcoming of men is the thought of being helpless in the face of the challenges of life. It also becomes worse when one does not know what to do when evil strikes. We thank God that the power and authority our Lord Jesus received were handed over to us children of God through his name. Matt 28:18
In Mark 16:15-17, He instructed His disciples that in His name, we would cast out devils, speak in new tongues, lay hands on the sick, and they would be healed, and if they are to take in deadly things it will not harm them. This is a real superiority in life. knowing this. and believing it , gives you an edge over the basic difficulties of men.
Secondly, He knew He came from the father. Where do you hail from? The scripture teaches, we are from God. 1st John 4:4 says, “we proceed from God…” If we are God’s children, then our life should be that of our father.
We should be children of the light. Knowing you proceed from the father should convince you that it is very natural to live the godly life. The child of God reflects the image of His father.
Finally, the Lord knew He would be going back to His father. Every child of God must know that when He departs from this life. He is going back to His heavenly father. Phil. 1:28 “I feel torn between the two because I have a desire to depart and be with Christ.” Apostle Paul knew that if he departed from this life, He would go to be with the Lord. Dear child of God, we have full assurance from the word of God concerning our destiny in this life.
Dear reader, can you say with such certainty about the authority you wield in this life? Do you know where you come from? Are you sure about where you would be going if you depart this life? You can make your destiny sure by first coming to the Lord.
You must be born again from above. John 3:3
This is your moment to end that life of uncertainty.
I am born from above. God is my father; I have His authority in this life over every work of the devil. I will be with my Lord at the last day. I am filled with His perfect peace

2Co 5:1 KJV” For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
