5/22/17 Real Life
“I want you to function beyond your personal abilities. When you have done all that you know to do, just stand and wait for Me to show Myself strong. I will be found when you are in need. I will be strong when you are at your weakest or when you have no answers. I am the answer to your every need.
"Never be afraid to walk in areas to which I call you. I will always be in those places with you. It is the way I intended your life to be. It is the way of the cross. It is the way of real life.”
Isaiah 2:22 AMP
Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?
Isaiah 30:21 NIV
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying “This is the way; walk in it.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
11) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
12) Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13) You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Seeking God with all of our heart usually happens when we are out of answers. Only when we have exhausted our own resources do we finally give in to the reality that we need God. We have it backwards.
Needing God should be our priority in life. It should be the most important function of our everyday living. Learning to need God should be the goal of every thought or action.
When we function in need of God, we have the presence of God with us. What more could we ask for? Where could there be a better place to function? Where could there be a better place to rest from our own frailties and be free to see the power of God? Where else could we be aligned with the heart of Jesus, Who did nothing of Himself but said and did only what His Father wanted?
Teach me to need You every moment, Lord,
