How many times have I heard God speak to me this past year and didn't do anything about it? Was it God or ? How many times did I hear the same guidance to finally say "Oh, I get it, duh?" That's what happens when I'm not quiet enough, not focused enough. I wonder "was that God?"
He's in our lives because He chooses to be, whether we listen or not, is up to us.
Today I was reading Matthew 11, lots of good stuff in there but the one thing that kept resonating was verse 3 to ask him, "Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?"
Should we expect someone else? I wasn't there so I don't know, but can you just wonder what God is thinking... "SHOULD YOU EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE? THERE IS NO ONE ELSE!" (Well, duh, we know He's IT!) but He's not like that, he's kind and gentle and sends them off.
There is no one else. There is no one else to save you, there's no one else that you should bow down to, there's no one you should trust more, there's no one else you should serve more. And there is no one else you should LOVE more.
His words and His love should be hidden in our hearts but proclaimed in actions to all we know and love.
When He calls, answer. When He loves, love Him back.
There is no one else.
Rev 21:5-7 5He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
6He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
