“The Jews then said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we will not find Him? He is not intending to go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks, is He?” (John 7:35)

We often think in temporal current time terms. God is Spirit and Truth and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth. Jesus descended from the heavenly realm to dwell with us for a time. Where He is taking us is to the heavenly realm. We need to listen to what the Lord says and by faith believe in that which is not seen.

Lord, trusting You is simple. Yet it is also profound and that is what puzzles me. I am unable to comprehend the ultimate reality. Rather than living befuddled, help me trust that You are leading me where I need to go. Help me trust You step by step that I may become what You have always intended.

Thank You Lord Jesus for speaking in terms that I can understand to learn about things I do not know. Grant today that with gentleness I would speak to others as You have spoken to me. Help me not just impress upon them Your Truth, but instead be a witness of it by being gentle and kind that others may know You are in me. Amen.
