Glory Seed Devotional’s 2018 Experiencing Jesus, the Prelude to Life
Jesus is willing are you?
“When he came down from the mountain, large crowds followed him. Right away a man with leprosy came up and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Reaching out his hand, Jesus touched him, saying, “I am willing; be made clean.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” (Matthew 8:1–3)
One of the things I always do when reading a scripture is to identify the most important words for me the time I am reading it. Sometimes I find myself marveling that days or weeks later I can read the same quote and discover the important words have changed.
“I will,” those two words jump right off the page and into the nitty-gritty everyday struggles that are pressing upon me as I type these words. Even before I ask for a blessing Jesus’ voice echoes in my ears, “I will.”
Note: As you continue reading the remainder of this Glory Seed when you see the word “my” or “me” please experience them as yourself, thank you.
“Will you bring peace to my troubled spirit, Jesus?”
“Will you touch and heal the jagged edges of my life, Jesus?”
“Will you bless and look after my children, Jesus?”
“Will you forgive my shortcomings, Jesus?”
“Will you pick me up when I fall, carry me when I am weak, Jesus?”
And my life goes on!
“The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. You will not despise
a broken and humbled heart, God.” (Psalm 51:17)
Grace and PEACE,
