Come and See

I am convinced that when we first step in the direction of God, God will reveal His power.
This morning I read in my quite time the following passage, and I would like to my heart with you.

How often do we wonder where our "Savior" is. We look around us and see the human, carnal struggle and wonder how are we going to be saved from this? Before I go further, quickly read this passage in John 1:43-51

The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Come, follow me.”  Philip was from Bethsaida, Andrew and Peter’s hometown. Philip went to look for Nathanael and told him, “We have found the very person Moses and the prophets wrote about! His name is Jesus, the son of Joseph from Nazareth.” “Nazareth!” exclaimed Nathanael. “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” “Come and see for yourself,” Philip replied. As they approached, Jesus said, “Now here is a genuine son of Israel—a man of complete integrity.” “How do you know about me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus replied, “I could see you under the fig tree before Philip found you.” Then Nathanael exclaimed, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God—the King of Israel!” Jesus asked him, “Do you believe this just because I told you I had seen you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.”  Then he said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth. ”

The first thought is, COME FOLLOW ME. Jesus gives us all the opportunity to follow Him. The devil wants us to follow other things and throws us with a lot of distractions, but there is only ONE who we can follow, which gives us the ability to SEE.

COME AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. I believe that we are saved for others. To share the good news with friends and family. But it is the Holy Spirit who draws them. I believe we must pray that God will draw people and that they will find the strength to stand up for themselves and to come and see. Where in our life’s choices, must we stand up and trust God to see Him? Are you discouraged? Flat on the ground? All God requires you to do is come and see. Nathaniel was negative when he heard the good news … "can anything good come out of Nazareth?" but when he ROSE and SAW Jesus, it changed his outlook on life. I want to encourage you today, ARISE FROM YOUR SITUATION, WALK AND SEE that Jesus wants to SHARE WITH YOU His heart for you.

Before you could even see, know, that Jesus ALREADY SAW YOU IN YOUR SITUATION. He knows where you are, He knows your heart and mind. He waits with an open heart, with arms wide open to receive you. Every day is a hug day. Jesus wants to hold you today.

When you BELIEVE the words of Jesus, you will SEE GREATER THINGS THAN BEFORE. We think we have seen great things, but in faith we come to God, and He SHOWS us His Glory. WE WILL EXPERIENCE THE GLORY. Keep on believing His promises to you. When you come and see, life as you know is, will change and it will be better, even in the storms, it will be better, because Jesus is with you there in the storm.

ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.

May you experience a wonderful day, and remember … You are precious !!!
