“’Why were you searching for me?’ he asked. ‘Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?’” Luke 2:49.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Genesis 3-5, and Luke 2.
Note that the word “Father’s” is capitalized.
Jesus had an earthly father (Joseph) but He also had a heavenly Father (God).
I must be about my Father’s business.
My earthly father is deceased, so I no longer answer to his plans. But there are others who have expectations for what I should or shouldn’t do.
The bigger picture is: What does God my Father want me doing?
I must be about His business.
I must be doing things that please Him. To pull this off I will need to be close to Him at all times.
How is this done? I must pray without ceasing. His thoughts must be running through my head. I want to be at the place where His thoughts easily override any of my own.
I live in a world that is confusing. There are so many voices and so many draws away from Him. I am easily misled. I am quick to misstep. My need for a powerful relationship with Him is obvious.
“O Lord, I want to be where You want me to be today. I want Your Words flowing from my mouth. I cannot pull this off without Your dominance in my life. I surrender now to You. Take me over. I love You, Lord.”
Where does God want you to be today? Have you asked Him?
