In the time that Jesus walked the earth people did not know Him as we know Him today. He had not yet died and risen to heaven. Thus, to believe in Him at this time was tremendous.
Many prophets had prophesied about Him, but no one knew Him as we can know Him today. This is because the Spirit dwells here with us now. “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me. And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.” (John 15:26-27)
To step out in faith and ask boldly for what we want takes incredible faith. We must stand in our faith and be ready to receive. Living in the world's way of prepare for the worst and hope for the best is not God's way.
He wants us to live in consistent and constant hope. Knowing that all His promises are meant for us. We simply have to stand in our belief no matter our circumstances.
Mark 10:51 MSG
Considerations for your planner:
- What are your circumstances like today? Are you leaning on God no matter the circumstances? Write out what you could ask Him for direction and help in today.
A Prayer for Our Community:
Lord, Help us to be stronger than we think we are. Guide us through all the difficult times that we will face. We need You. We are lost without You. Hold us as the world overwhelms and throws more than we can handle. Help us to continue to come back to the understanding that we need You to successfully get through all things. Amen.
