Seeking Peace-When God Says Go

5 Apr

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis

I’ve had John 4:46-54 in my Seeking Peace notes for a couple of weeks. I imagined a distressed father, who had probably run most of the way to find Jesus, dropping to his knees before him, desperate for his child to live. Jesus didn’t question him or preach to him, he simply said, “Go, your child will live.” The father, a Royal official didn’t hesitate. Maybe due to his position of authority, he recognized it in Jesus, or maybe he was too desperate to doubt.

Regardless of the father’s reason to obey, God sent him off with a promise, your son will live. In my journey into peace, I am learning to listen for the promise and go.

Love- Love is meant to be shared. Loving God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, infuses me with love to share with others.

Joy- To my surprise this week, I realized that despair actually led me to joy.

Peace- Peace comes in trusting that God has the authority to deliver on His promises.
