Searching

What you are looking at may not be what you are hoping for. Your life may not appear to be what you believe that God has for you, kind of like a shadow right? You can see yourself but it is not perfectly clear what you will be. We strive to be like Jesus and parts of our lives may be similar to what we read in the Bible, but we know that God lives within us. O what a joy it will be to put off this flesh and truly be "seen" as we are...a child of the Invisible God!

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:2 

Sometimes we do not know what we are really searching for. We just know that nothing earthly is truly fulfilling. We shop, drink, party, strive for money and riches....searching for something that meets a need we have had all our lives, but what is it? Why can't we grab hold of it?

All that we ever need is in Jesus. No, it's not just a cliche, it's a fact. Every once in a while, we are right there in the right lighting of the Son to see the shadow - a figure of what God sees in us. Ever have a moment like that? God gives us glimpses of heaven's view and we want more, but God tells us to wait. Wait on Him and be of good courage (Psalm 27:14). He will give you the patience to wait until He reveals the object of your search - the very face of Jesus Christ!

Prayer: Lord, we want to see you. We want to see you in our lives, our attitudes and in our decisions. You do not reveal all things to us at once, but You are an on-time God. Help us to trust You even when all we can see is the shadow of the Son.

Action: Spend some time with a young child. Show them how to find their shadow and explain how Jesus is the light of the world.
