This morning while reading the scriptures above, a couple of things occurred to me:
Some heard the voice from heaven, some didn’t. Which one am I? Am I tuned in when heaven speaks or will I miss it? How do we “tune in”? Will I just hear with no effort on my part?
Jesus told the people (paraphrasing) “the voice you heard was for you to hear, not for me”. In other words, He knew exactly who He was. He knew with 100% confidence what He was there for and He knew his time on earth was very, very short. Do we? Do we have that kind of confidence in God? Do we know why we’re here? We make plans for tomorrow, for an hour from now…lots of times we spend our today focused on tomorrow and miss the now.
Suffice it to say, most of what we go through, trials we endure, good things that happen has very little to do with us. We’re the vessel God chooses to work through for the benefit of someone else. Sometimes we’re so caught up in us we can’t see beyond our own nose.
So I leave you with these questions:
- Are you “tuned in”? If heaven spoke, could you, would you hear?
- Do you know who you are and Whose you are…really? Do you live and love like you believe it?
- Could God be using you to bring someone else to the realization of the Lord Jesus Christ…so hold your head up and walk out this thing you’re going through believing it’s for His greater purpose.
