Today, let’s reflect on some of the things we’ve read this week and highlight some observations.
How then do we live? Week Three
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
he cares deeply for us
Jesus cares about our pain, be it physical or emotional. He knew that the bleeding woman’s problem wasn’t solely physical; he met both needs. Notice how loving he was in his interactions with the women, endearingly calling them “daughter.” What assurance for us to see that Jesus’s touch contains more than power but also the presence of his love.
he wants us to come to him
Jesus desires that we come to him in faith. When we are at the end of ourselves, he is enough. We can come to him, believing he can help. Jesus won’t condemn us for asking for help either.
he won't abandon us
Let Jesus’s urgency to raise a little girl from the dead be a reminder to us that when we are in the pit, he’s coming. His love is our blessed assurance, and nothing can separate us from it (Romans 8:35).
he wants to use our stories
Jesus heals us to love us, but also so that we can be examples of the good news and share his love with others.
we have his approval
Accept his loving approval. We are his daughters. We are who Jesus declares us to be, whether in pain or in process or in victory. We can act like we are his, trusting and obeying our Father. In this, he is pleased, and we are blessed.
