It grabbed my attention the other day when I read John 11:52 “..gather together in one the children of God”. And all nations.
It seems impossible in a world we now live in – to even fathom “as one”. God works the impossible, we need to keep Him in our hearts and believe His word. And we need to read His word – therein He speaks to our soul. One by one we can bring unity – as we bring God back into our world. God then can do the impossible. He can unite our hearts.
“Took branches of palm trees and went forth to meet Him, and cried Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (John 12:13) Imagine that He walk in our world like that, and we welcome and praise Him in the like. As we’re brought to our knees in despair, may we bend our knees and bow our head and speak to God. Talk with Him. And He will move into our hearts…one by one. And we can be one, through God into our world, by hearts one by one to Him.
From book: His Hope for All of Us, pg. 7:
So, I hope in help to see others’ stumbles and needs, the same as myself, in growing God’s path in our lives. Others’ needs are my rewards, if my giving to the need so before them. We all have needs, we all have stumbles. I pray I may be a tool in the opening to God’s presence, stumbling block which I am, to help in some way as God feeds. And in showing God’s strength is revealed in weakness and empty, He brings strength…in needing He brings.
Acts 2:44-47 shows as God wants us to live and thrive and survive with one another. The way we could be of this mind and accord. How nice the thought and I smile.
Help us see others’ needs as our rewards, from God to our souls – through people you are sending in our life. Help us look to help others in theirs. Show Jesus in lives around us, help Him grow so our hope in Him for all of us will grow.
Use me as your tool to work in hearts without. Where there is no hope, no strength; lead me Lord to be your hands in your desire and your care.
Request: I’d love to hear from you. Please slip me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if my words touch your heart at all. For that is the purpose – to help others by touching their hearts, helping their hearts by hopefully moving them closer to God. My words are fed, I promise you, by God. For His purpose – hopefully in each of us.
