Day 31: When?


When?

Immediately

At once

Instantly

Not in a moment

Not in a second

Not even let me think about it

Immediately:

"without any intervening time or space"

When?

Immediately

because that is when miracles happen~

Immediately they received their sight and followed him Matthew 20:30

Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed Mark 1:42

Immediately something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again.

He got up and was baptized. Acts 9:18

When?

Immediately

Because that is how Jesus does things

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of Him

to the other side, while He dismissed the crowd. Matthew 14:22

But

When the disciples saw Him walking on the lake, they were terrified.

“It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.

But

Jesus

Immediately said to them:

“Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

And then Peter responded~

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

And then Jesus responded

“Come,” He said.

And then Peter responded

Immediately

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.

But then it only took a moment

for Peter to look away from Jesus

and

Immediately

He began to sink

But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Oh how

I fall

Immediately

when I take my eyes off of Jesus

when I get distracted

But then Jesus does it again

Immediately

Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Matthew 14

In the midst of fear

in the midst of doubt

In the midst of ______

He always responds

Immediately

Because

with Jesus

there is no time like the moment

because

Immediately

Forgiven

Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” Luke 7:48

Immediately

Saved

Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Luke 7:50

Immediately

Free

If ...

Jesus said, “If you hold to My teaching, you are really My disciples.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31

Immediately

without hesitation

to

Immediately

Obey

What do you have to stop doing or start doing

Immediately

so that you can live a life of freedom?

Is it asking Jesus to come into your life?

Is it letting go of a habit/behavior?

Is it just asking for forgiveness for something you did?

Whatever it is

Let's

just do it

Immediately

so that I

so that you

can get out of our comfy cozy boat

and walk on water

with the

One

Who

Immediately

will keep us afloat

because

that is just how

Jesus

does things

Immediately~

always waiting for me

always waiting for you

to do what He does best

with us

for us

even when our faith waivers

when we fear

when we doubt

because

He

Immediately said to them:

and

Immediately

says to us

“Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13
