“Jesus said His followers would be known for an extravagant love that holds no record of wrong.
He said that we would have a staggering power in this life.
He said that rivers of life would pour from our inner most being; that we would find peace in the midst of any storm. That our love would cast out all fear.”
(The Forgotten Way intro, Dekker)
I desire to live like that, but I admit that I do not walk in this authority often. So I am asking a lot of questions, asking God, asking myself: why not?
Hmmm. Can’t seem to find that answer with my search engine…
When there is a disconnect between who Jesus says I am and who I manifest myself to be, I have to wonder. Do I not believe it, am I deficient or do I need a perspective change?
So I’m going to A.S.K. -ask, seek and knock until I get an answer. He promises to give me answers that require me to draw so close that His whisper comforts me, heartbeat moves me, eyes melt me and embrace warms me. Then I will be.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
