This people’s heart has grown coarse, their ears dulled, they have shut their eyes tight to avoid using their eyes to see, their ears to hear, their heart to understand, changing their ways and being healed by me.Matthew 13:15
I wonder how Jesus must have felt when He spoke these words.
He had come to His own and His own knew Him not… John 1:11
As He presented the Good News to the people of His time, He was met with indifference and insolence.
Doesn’t this happen still in our time? Even amongst us Christians?
We proclaim and confess His Name and our love for Him, but we draw the line when it comes to matters that are deeply personal to us.
We (I) have a “Don’t touch” sign OR “Don’t even go there” attitude concerning certain aspects of my life.
The question is “why?”
If I truly believe Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of Lords, then why won’t I allow Him reign and govern over every aspect of my life!
My heart breaks at my ingratitude or probably yet still lack of trusting God.
May He Who is generous and loving, and gracious and merciful, have compassion on me.
And I know He will, because as St John continues in His Gospel,
But to all who received Him, who believed in His Name, He gave the power to become children of God. John 1:12
The promises of God are so true and kind, it makes so much sense for us to simply fall into His Hands and trust in Him as His child.
Loving Ssviour, I am sorry!
I am deeply sorry for being frightful, lacking trust in You and having a fleeting attitude towards Your ability to completely take care of me.
As I think about it now LORD, I am baffled at how I could have possibly trusted in anything else but You!
Please forgive me and please help me.
Above all, heal my unbelief LORD! And heal every aspect of my life.
I now surrender everything in my life into Your loving care.
You are my God, my Father and I am Your child!
Blessed be Your Holy Name o LORD, both now and forever!
Always & Forever,
To the Lamb,
With all my ❤
