On my Heart
The story starts out in Luke 2:41. Just picture it, Jesus was 12 years old, and he and his parents were going to Jerusalem for the Passover, as was the custom. In verse 43, The Word says the Passover feast was over, and his parents were returning home, but Jesus stayed behind, but they were unaware of it. They traveled on for a day, still thinking he was with them, but he wasn't. After 3 days, they began looking among relatives and friends (v44) but could not find Him. They franticly returned to Jerusalem, to find Him in the temple, listening to the teachers, and asking them questions. Mary went up to Him and said, "Why do You do this to Your father and I? We sought for you anxiously....
spoke to me about this verse.
Just to share a little from my life regarding this whole thing. My husband and I were offered a paid position at a church here and it would have been PERFECT for us. More income, church right down the road, love and know the people, etc... The more I looked at it, the better it seemed, and my heart wanted to do it so bad. So we began to pray, and after a while, we felt a no. I wrestled with the Lord, How can it feel so good, and You not want us to do it?!!? You know how our little minds try to reason with God?? But, we just didn't have a peace about it. So, we obeyed, as hard as it was, and we declined the offer, and still to this day, I my little mind questions God about it. It's my desire to worship, and to be paid at it!... AM I SILLY?? The Lord says no... It's better to obey... Hallelujah! You know where I am right now??? Sitting on the curb, waiting for Him... Just playing with the little pebbles, and dirt, waiting. I WILL NOT walk ahead of the Lord, or walk where He's not going. I'm not going to have any anxiety, because I wont be worried what may happen, I'm walking with the Lord! He's got great things in store for us! As hard as it is sometimes to wait, just do it! You will be glad you did.
God is so good....
