Day 12: Contentment


It is amazing how I can be searching

and seeking for the ANSWER

when THE ANSWER is right here with me

because

GOD IS HERE and HE has given me THE ANSWER

in ALL things~

JESUS.

Oh how HE meets every NEED

in every moment.

But oh how I easily forget at times

when what I SEE & FEEL & HEAR

starts to take over my being,

leading me to DOUBT.

BUT SEEING ISN'T BELIEVING.

BUT FEELING ISN'T BELIEVING.

Because

BELIEVING IS BELIEVING

without questioning.

Oh how I am so good at complicating the

simple TRUTH

when DOUBT comes knocking at my door.

But GOD woke me up as I ASKED HIM to bring me

back to the

"HEART OF WORSHIP"*

and HE DID IMMEDIATELY

as the lyrics of the song

came flowing from my lips~

"I'm coming back to the heart of worship And it's all about YOU It's all about YOU, JESUS.

I'm sorry, LORD for the thing I've made it When it's all about YOU It's all about YOU, JESUS"*

When we ASK

GOD ALWAYS ANSWERS with HIS SON.

Why complicate it all

when JESUS uncomplicated it

the moment HE was crucified on our CROSS.

Can you just picture it.

HE was with GOD from the very beginning.

"In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD" (John 1:1).

And then GOD sends JESUS to earth

dressed as a baby.

JESUS, who was delivered naturally into the world through Mary,

yet supernaturally implanted in Mary by THE SPIRIT.

JESUS felt like a BABY

JESUS felt like a CHILD.

JESUS felt like a TEEN.

JESUS felt like an ADULT.

JESUS felt like you & me & everyone else

so HE can FEEL with us.

What more does JESUS have to do

to prove that HE IS JESUS.

It is all finished IN HIM.

Every NEED met IN HIM.

I have all that I NEED in every moment.

For I know the secret of being content,

and it really isn't a secret because

JESUS doesn't hide HIMSELF.

HE is always waiting for all to

COME.

And whenever anyone COMES

HE takes off HIS ROBE and places it on you.

HIS PERFECTION covering all our IMPERFECTIONS.

And then HE tells you what to do next,

just like HE told the sick woman who reached out and touched HIM~

"Daughter your FAITH as healed you. Go in PEACE" (Luke 8:48).

Just like HE told the paralyzed man to

“Stand up, take your mat and walk” (John 5:8).

Just like HE told the adulterous woman~

“Go now and leave your life of sin" (John 8:11).

Oh JESUS is not a SECRET.

Everyone knew of JESUS,

yet not all sought after HIM

There HE was. So ready to clothe each one of them

with HIS ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

And then it was their turn to take their first step

as HEALED & FORGIVEN,

as they would never be the same again

because they took the

FIRST STEP FORWARD

into the ARMS OF JESUS.

Oh how when I get distracted by DOUBT,

I FORGET that I took that step,

FORGETTING that I wear HIS ROBE at all time,

no matter "time" I am living in.

Let's not keep JESUS a SECRET

because HE never keeps HIMSELF a SECRET from us.

BLOOM PLANTED IN JESUS

in every circumstance~

"For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

I can do all this through him who gives me strength" (Philippians 4:11-13)

Let's all go back to the

"HEART OF WORSHIP (listen to the song below)
