I’m hoping that this post will be short, but I just never really know what will be layed on my heart as I begin to write. I’ve started to pay attention to those small nudges from God. I also have started to realize that I, do not have all the information to decide if that “nudging”, or more accurately, “shove”, from God, will be used for some bigger purpose. Yes, sometimes it takes a shove! You see, I really want to ignore them, but God has a way of getting our attention and He got mine yesterday! Sometimes, if I don’t listen……He gives me a very blatant sign (or license plate) and sometimes, actually most of the time, that sign is not for me alone.
I’m participating in a study about prayer, and today I was reading John 17:1-26, a prayer of Jesus to His Father in heaven. Jesus was actually praying to His Father for us. How awesome is it to know that Jesus goes to His Father to intercede for us! I kept looking at a particular verse, I knew there was something there and I wasn’t “getting” it. I took a moment, said a quiet prayer and asked for that particular verse to be revealed to me. I not only “got it” but have decided to share it, as I know it’s for more than just me. So the WORD for today is…..
John 17: 2 – 2For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
John 17: 25 – 25“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
If you’d like to read the whole prayer of Jesus you can see it here. John 17 1:26
