“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this” (Revelation 3:14)
The One who makes is so, the Author and Finisher of your faith is faithful and true. He is the standard by which all things are to be compared. How strange it is that we will listen to others, even people we do not know, but do not listen to the One who holds all things in His hands. Come to the One who knows and know truth. Come and learn how to be faithful. Come and learn how to hear Him as He speaks.
Lord, I want what I can put my hands upon. But You are Lord and what I need is to hand myself over to You. But I fight this. You who were there at the beginning of the creation, know all that needs to be known. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of everlasting life and guide me in Your goodness to do what needs to be done. Help me live into the life into which I have been invited by Your grace.
Lord Jesus, the first and last, the beginning and end, You are reveling to us what we need to know for this part of our journey. Help me to not make of it anything other that what it is. Take my hand and help me to learn how to follow. In Your goodness, lead me according to the Father’s will and learn how to humbly submit to all that You know I will need for the journey. Amen.
