The more I study scripture, the more I realize how much I don’t know.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
It never fails that every single time I call on the Lord for anything, He shows me so many things in scripture that I never knew. I’m not talking about opening the bible and reading a new verse. I’m talkin about reading the same verse for the 100th time and feel it working in my heart like it never did before.
There is always something new in the Lord. There were plenty of times when i studied and studied the bible, listenEd to podcast over and over and finally I said to God, “that’s it? Is there something here that I don’t know? Lord? Can you WOW me again?” And He does. He really really does. And when He does, He reminds me that I know nothing.
I love Him so much. I can’t go a day without Him. I need Him to strengthen me, to love me, to tell me that everything is going to be okay. I remember having so many low moments in my life spiritually but God is so amazing that he taught me that even in my low moments, He is still there. He is with me even more.
If someone asked me for proof of God exsistance, I wouldn’t have much convincing, tangible evidence for a non-believer. The only thing I have to offer is my story. I’ll pour out my heart in the most honest way demonstrating what God has done for me with tears. The passion In my face will be enough proof that there is something out there keeping me together. There is something out there that makes me feel complete no matter the circumstance. There is something out there that’s loving me so much that I reach for it everyday. That something is a man, and His name is Jesus.
On judgment day, there is nothing I can do or say that will make me holy enough before a Holy God. All I can do is hide behind the the man who died on the Cross and trust that His death made me righteous.
