Grace is easy to spot or at least has become easier to spot in my life and one of the primary ways I can tell I am being drawn away from Grace and His Presence is the time zone that I am in – This is one lesson I hope and pray you will read many times over!
WDJK? 4 deals with what Jesus knew about the Presence of God and how that can impact your life!
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.”– Matthew 6:26-28
The only time Jesus doubted God was in what would be His next to the last prayer in Gethsemane. He knew the pain that the future held and begged God to spare Him that cup. Then He came back into God’s Presence and basically said, “let’s roll!”
What does that have to do with me Here and Now – Everything if I am to walk (present tense) in Grace!
Anytime we question our past or have concern about our future – we are doubting God – this is perfectly ok – after all Jesus Himself wasn’t sure in the Garden when He was praying. Doubting Thomas, Paul, Peter, John, Moses, David, Abraham and pick any other person in the Bible they ALL doubted at one time or another – it isn’t the doubt that bothers God it’s what some find as a solution.
There are two kinds of solutions:
- Get busy, work harder, do more, read more, go to church more and in the end struggle more!
- Rest more in the knowledge of Who He Is, What He has done through the cross and How Powerful He is!
In each moment of doubt you really do have that choice and you can guess I hope which one the devil would like you to choose.
What Did Jesus Know about God Presence – He knew the Red Sea didn’t part until God’s perfect time! He knew that Daniel was in The Perfect spot in the lion’s den! He knew that Noah was Perfectly situated to build The Ark in a place where no rain had fallen for a Very long time!
And one more thing – He knew that you, yes you reading this right now are in the perfect place that God wants you!
How can I say that? Because I know the answer to 5 questions and 7 more!
