Let There Be...and there was.

"Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."
-Jeremiah 33:3

When we cry to God, God answers with His Word, and that very Word with which He answers us becomes Flesh, fleshes out in our lives.  Everything we need begins as a Word, is contained in His Word.

Man needed a Savior, the Word Himself became flesh.
We need light, the Word Himself becomes a lamp to our feet.
We need healing, God speaks a Word
Captives need deliverance, deliverance is preached, or spoken
and the Truth of the Word makes them free
We underestimate the power in the deceptively innocuous,
seemingly intangible Word
Yet it was a Word that created our World and the Heavens above,
"Let there be..." and there was.
To take it futher, John 1:1 says that the Word is God. 
Let that little gem stew in your noodle for five minutes.
So what is God telling you?  What is His Word speaking to you?  With what piece of Himself has God answered you?  Take some time to be still, to be quiet, so you can listen, so you can hear...

Consider the posture you take when you are truly listening for something...
Jesus said in Luke 10:42, "One thing is needed" referring to Mary sitting at His feet and hearing His WordSitting, being still, and hearing God's Word is not a passive pursuit, but a holy interaction with the Word Himself, wherein everything that is needed is invoked into our lives, so that Word, once again, can become Flesh, continuous creation, our lives becoming a consecrated conduit between Heaven and Earth.
"Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord."
-Luke 1:45


  1. I've always loved that flow
    "blessed is she who has believed"
    ...I believe we believe sometimes
    when it feels dark and doubtful in our minds.
    I believe the Lord sees our hearts shaking and trembling
    and sees the seed of believing there even when we feel
    nothing but confusion and fear. I don't think it's as hard
    as we've made it seen, being so over-churched.
    He's got us. In the palm of His hands.

  2. Beautiful words of wisdom...He has really been convicting me of being still and listening and one of the things He has been saying is in learning of Me you learn more about your self and can see me more clearly....
