Times of emptiness are prime opportunities to receive new revelation about Jesus. It’s sometimes hard to see, much less believe, but Jesus often saves the best for last.
No home is immune from crisis. As a parent, no agony exceeds that of seeing your child dying in the grip of a crippling illness. For one Roman Centurion, all it took was the words of Jesus to know that the agony was over. You too can trust God to be as good as His word.
The man had been lame for 38 years. Then Jesus showed up. Maybe, like that man, you’ve been lying down, sick in body, mind, and spirit. There’s only one question: Do you want to get well?
When the need is great and resources are limited, just take what you have, put it in the hands of Jesus and watch what happens.
“There are none so blind as those who WILL NOT see.” This is a good warning for those of us who think we can put God in a box, or that God will only act in ways that we predict He will act.
It’s human nature to want your prayer answered, your need filled immediately, but God often calls us to be patient. If we can be patient and just believe, we will see the Glory of God.
