If Jesus could talk to you personally, what do you think He would say? Have you ever wished that He would speak to you and help you figure things out in your life? I have definitely wished that before.
It’s easy enough to say that the Bible is God’s Word. But do you really ever think about what that means? That means that the Bible contains everything God ever wanted to say to you, everything He could ever want you to know. When we read God’s Word, that is our opportunity to “hear” from the Lord and listen to Him speak into our lives.
But sometimes that’s difficult, right? The Bible doesn’t always say things the way we say them now. Sometimes, it’s hard to connect those words to what’s happening in your life today. Sometimes, you need a little help understanding what God is trying to say.
Check out the passage below. Read it as though Jesus were saying these words to you, then read the Bible verses after and see if you get how they are saying the same thing. Jesus is talking to you, all the time. We’ve just got to learn how to understand it.
“Trust Me in every detail of your life. Nothing is random in My kingdom. Everything that happens fits into a pattern for good, to those who love Me. Instead of trying to analyze the intricacies of the pattern, focus your energy on trusting Me and thanking Me at all times. Nothing is wasted when you walk close to Me. Even your mistakes and sins can be recycled into something good, through My transforming grace.
While you were still living in darkness, I began to shine the light of My Presence into your sin-stained life. Finally, I lifted you up out of the mire into my marvelous Light. Having sacrificed My very Life for you, I can be trusted in every facet of your life.
