We all have them. I am overwhelmed a bit with some at the moment. I am reading a Beth Moore Bible Study, THE BELOVED DISCIPLE. It is a great study on all of the disciples, but of course John is the focus. She presented a statement about what John believed, and I turned around the statements and then asked myself these questions.
1.) Jesus offers a lot of life~do I take Him up on it?
2.) Jesus sheds a lot of light~do I walk in it?
3.) Jesus reveals a lot of glory~do I behold it?
4.) Jesus delivers a lot of truth~do I believe it?
5.) Jesus shed a lot of blood~do I feel covered by it?
6.) Jesus lavished a lot of love~do I receive it?
7.) Jesus is full of everything we could ever need or desire~do I receive it in abundance?
It seems as though when I am experiencing a trial, I experience the abundance. Can I experience it in the everyday? Do my choices in the everyday circumstances allow me to receive what He has for me? Do I choose to believe, even when the simple daily circumstances swirl?
I do believe that the Father hears our hearts. He hears our desire to know Him more…I am so glad that I don’t have to explain myself to Him.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
How grateful I am that He doesn’t care that I have questions…I might not get answers, but I can always ask….
IN CHRIST ALONE
