Re: Verse reading–John 11:17-44 (day five)
When Jesus walked the earth, his actions and attitudes are worth noting and following. By becoming flesh (human), Jesus affords us opportunities to see His Wisdom, Strength, and Authority. There are great insights to be gained as we are presented with occasions to understand what Jesus really believed about: scripture, eternity, heaven, a relationship with His Father (to name a few).
John 11: 41 – Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.”
Jesus believed that not only was He able to hear from God, but also that God heard Him. He really believed that God hears and responds to the prayers of His children. He really believed that in a relationship with God, communication was not only possible, but also essential.
What would a real and honest conversation sound like between each of us and the Living God this day, this moment? What would we say? More importantly, what would God say?
