September 17, 2010 - Don't You Get It

"No, we don't know, Lord," Thomas said. "We haven't any idea where You are going, so how can we know the way.'"
(John 14:5)

DON'T YOU GET IT

I like Thomas, he is labeled by many as 'Doubting Thomas' because he always required physical confirmation to build up his faith, but there is a little of Thomas in all of us.

Think back to the days of Moses-God just performed 10 miracles releasing the Israelites from Egyptian bondage dating back 400 years yet they are ready to stone Moses when Pharaohs armed chariots approached them as their backs where against the Red Sea wall. Even when God opened the sea before them and they walked across on dry ground, then drowned the offending army who chased after them, three days later more bitter complaining of not having water.

"Where is God?" We all cry when hard times hit. "If He really loved us why does He let us suffer?".
.

Jesus answered Thomas as He answers all of us on finding answers to our life and existence questions…"I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE." V6

He doesn't leave us in doubt, the doubt is what creeps in when we forget what He plainly told us. The doubt sweeps in when our circumstances erase our memories, or better yet, overrides our memories as if circumstances infect us with a virus that corrupts our internal hard drive. We are injected with a half truth that is no truth at all.

Phillip says to Jesus, "Lord, show us the Father and we will be satisfied."V8 and I can almost hear the exasperation in Jesus' reply, "Phillip, don't you even yet know who I am after all the time I have been with you?" V9

'Don't you get it?' is my paraphrase and it's directed at me more than anyone. How many times does God have to prove Himself?

I guess it's another testimony of His love for me because He daily reveals His love to me just with each new breath, He grants His marvelous grace with every next heartbeat.

Lord, I get it!

Rejoice in the Lord Always!
