Praying Matthew 25, or Planning To Look For Jesus
We are planning to look for your Son. We won’t have to go far to find Him.
We know He is in our midst, but we know we can’t see Him unless we intend to see Him.
Once we intend to see Him, we can’t miss Him, because You lifted Him up.
We will look for Him in our Bibles.
We will look for Him at Holly Hill.
We will look for him in Frankfort, in Lawrenceburg, in Shelbyville, in Bald Knob, in Georgetown.
We will use our blessings to look for Him all over the country, all over the world.
When we find Him, we will love Him.
We will feed Him. We will clothe Him.
We will wash his feet and bind his wounds.
We will hold his hand and carry his cross.
We will wipe his tears away and ease his suffering.
We will change his diaper and fill his refrigerator.
We will learn from Him.
We will pray with Him and for Him.
We will follow Him.
We will walk like Him.
We will talk like Him.
We will touch like Him.
We will weep like Him.
When we meet Him, perhaps He will see Himself in us.
If we are not planning to look for Jesus, what ARE we planning to do?
Father, help us stop trying to build your kingdom. Help us intend to participate in your kingdom. Help us see where you are working. We don’t want you to bless what we want to do. We want to do what you are blessedly doing. Help us, Father. Forgive us for being selfish and blind, and give us the vision and the Spirit to serve in your Kingdom.
in HIS name….
