“Others were saying, “This is the Christ.” Still others were saying, “Surely the Christ is not going to come from Galilee, is He?” (John 7:41)

God is not who we expect Him to be. We have our own ideas. Sinful humans have a sinful idea of how things are supposed to be. The imperfect cannot comprehend the perfect. Therefore, we come with our ideas of how it should be. But God comes as He IS and does what He will do. Believing in the Christ is to accept the revelation.

Lord, help me not get caught up in speculations. Grant that I would hear what You have revealed and begin there. Help me when I accept things that are contrary to the truth that I may know You, abide in Your Word, be Your disciple and live in the freedom You have come to grant. Move me beyond myself to embrace Your revealed truth.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for coming as You are that we would have the chance to know eternity as it is. Help me today to live firmly in the truth, proclaiming in Word and deed what You have shared. May others come to know that You are the Anointed One and follow You into eternity. Amen.
