Day 3: What Do You WAnt?


If GOD were a genie and HE asks you for ONE request

that HE would fulfill

what would that ONE thing be?

I bet that ONE thing just popped in your mind,

but then you started thinking, but maybe I really want _______.

But what if GOD has given us that ONE thing

that would answer all our WANTS & NEEDS?

I am going to get Christian~ese on you,

even though you all know the ONE thing that I am going to say~

JESUS.

Now don't stop now.

As tears are dripping down my face, unannounced as they are taking me by surprise,

it is because my ONE request is for all to

RECEIVE & BELIEVE IN JESUS.

Can't you just see it now

if

JESUS was our ONLY WANT & NEED~

then wouldn't we have

& wouldn't all our loved ones have

all that we WANT & NEED?

JESUS would be the main guest at every gathering

and

whenever

FEAR or ANXIETY or BITTERNESS or ANGER

would come like a firing arrow,

JESUS would grab it with

HIS UNDYING LOVE

that would shout

"Leave MY CHILD alone".

Then HIS PEACE that transcends all understanding

would guard our hearts

and we would stand in amazement

that we could feel so PEACEFUL

despite the fiery arrows

because

JESUS covers all

while we are living in the here & now~

even though we can't stop the whatevers & the whomevers

that come like arrows.

But we would all know that JESUS is with us

and we get a pre-taste of the fruition of that one day when

"HE will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:4).

Doesn't that just bring you

HOPE in the midst of DOUBT

PEACE in the midst of ANXIETY

JOY in the midst of DESPAIR

and so much more

because

when we make JESUS OUR ONLY OPTION

everything just stops in an instant

because

JESUS becomes all we WANT & NEED

as HE meets each one us right where we are

and never leaves our side,

just as OUR FATHER

who knows all

and sees all~

"YOU keep track of all my sorrows

YOU have collected all my tears in YOUR bottle.

YOU have recorded each one in YOUR book" (Psalm 56:8).

So don't you see it because HE SEES you.

As long as we are journeying through the here & now

we don't do it alone

because we have all that we WANT & NEED

when we make

JESUS all we WANT & NEED.

And then the arrows may prick a bit

yet can't steal away

WHO GOD IS

WHO JESUS IS

WHO THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

when we

"STAND IN FAITH" (listen to the song below)
