Hesitate–Daily Prompt

Do not hesitate. You do not know what tomorrow brings. Today is the day that the Lord has made. Come to Jesus humbly and he will bring victory to your life.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus is talking to Nicodemus. Nocodemus was a member of the church council and so he was a leader of the Jews. He came to Jesus for a very important conversation. Jesus said “most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I say to you, you must be born again.”

Further on in the Gospel of John, when Jesus was up against the Roman governor, Pilate, Jesus said “you say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, for this cause I’ve come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.”

In 1 John, John tells us that “whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God…By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep his commandments.”

In the book of Romans, the eighth chapter, we are told “for you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, Abba father. The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified together.”

There is a verse that we often hear at Christmas time. But it is relevant to this discussion as well. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

So, do not hesitate. There’s no better time than the present. He is waiting to hear from you. Even if you know him intimately already, he’s waiting to hear from you today. At this exact moment. He is for you! Always has been, always will be! There is nothing you can do which will keep him away from you. All you need to do is turn to see his face which is turned toward you!! You can count on it!!
