I don’t know what God wants

“’Why were you searching for me?’ he asked. ‘Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?’ But they did not understand what he was saying to them.”  Luke 2: 49-50.

Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading: Ezekiel 47-48, and Luke 2.

God is in charge of everything whether “everything” knows it or not!

Jesus was not where his parents expected Him to be.  They searched for Him as if he were a “normal” 12-year-old.

We often make the same mistake when we search for God.  We have expectations of what He wants, or doesn’t want, based on our limited view of Him.

The more I know Him the more likely I will know what He wants from me.

I love to read the Bible.  The more I read it the better my understanding is of what is expected of me.  Yet I often am confused by what to do.  Why?  Because my understanding is still so limited.

What to do?  Press in for His Wisdom.  Beg for Him to open my mind to His Truths.

“Lord, forgive me for misunderstanding Your Ways.  Forgive me for functioning as if I do know what You want.  I am needy of Your Insights in everything.  I thank You for Your Word, where I can read of what You did and read some of what You said.  I want to know You better.  Help me, I beg.”

I must passionately seek to know God’s Will.
