We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

Jesus can't turn away from anyone who clings to him in need. He sees the officer's horror in confronting himself, and with tenderness says, "Go home. Your son lives."


Relief floods the father with a peace and joy he has never felt. He could have ridden hard and reached home that night, but so great is his confidence in Jesus now, that he spends the night along the way and goes home the next morning.


At home, those with the child saw a sudden turn in his condition. At the hottest part of the day, the fever left, and he began sleeping peacefully. The family sent messengers to meet the father the next morning, knowing his anxiety when he left.


But everything has changed for the gentleman. The sunshine and birdsongs that seemed cruel the day before, now share God's praise. When the messengers meet him, they tell him excitedly, "Your boy lives! He is going to be ok!"


"When did he get better?" asks the father, already knowing.


"Yesterday after mid-day the fever left."


The father remembers and smiles.


Sometimes Jesus delays answers until we see our true motives.


God longs to give us His best gifts, but he wants us to believe He hears us because He loves us. Every prayer of faith enters the Father's heart, and He will answer our requests in the best way at the right time.


So relax and believe He has heard you. Know you are loved, and will have His best answer bringing no regret.


John 4:50-54
