In reading John 4, it occurred to me that the nobleman spoken of believed the words Jesus spoke without thought or question.
In other words he believed immediately that his son was healed after Jesus spoke the words, “Go your way, your son lives.”
With the mixed culture of Jamaican/American it would be thought or at least I thought Jesus was running him away. Which would be okay since what the man sought was taken care of. His son was healed. Thus he had no more need to remain where Jesus was. What was necessary was for him to see that his son is indeed well as Jesus had said.
So I pray that I would believe immediately and not think about it or try to figure a solution to my issue or circumstance, but instead believe immediately as this man did. All of God’s Word is true, it is, ‘yes and amen.’ in Jesus’ name, amen.
That is the title of Our Daily Bread Devotional for today. I respond by saying, ‘Amen.’
Here is an excerpt from the reading: After Jesus affirms that the greatest treasures are not earthly or temporary, He encourages us to release our anxious thoughts. The Creator and Sustainer of the universe loves and provides for His children, so we don’t have to waste our precious time worrying. God knows our needs and will care for us (Matthew 6:19–32).
Also, I encourage you all to read the devotional from March 1st-especially if you tend to worry about things Christians don’t need to worry about when we trust God. Before bed some thoughts came to my mind, and I had to purposefully remind myself to trust God and go to sleep! 😅
I give thanks to God because I woke up today and after a few seconds, I remembered what I wanted to get done this morning, then I got a burst of energy and hopped right out of bed!
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
