When people came to Jesus and earnestly sought Him for answers or for healing, He took the time to truly listen and love each who came before Him as they came. For those who were prepared, He healed. For those whom were still searching, He provided further food for thought.
Jesus looked at him and loved him… – (Mark 10:21) This was Jesus’ response to a rich young man who had come to ask how to inherit eternal life, yet was not yet prepared to act on that which Jesus had asked of him.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God; all things are possible with God.” – (Mark 10:27) The disciples were perplexed at the seeming complexity it required to enter the kingdom of heaven. Jesus let them know that it really had nothing to do with their own ability, but rather, everything to do with the power of God, present within them.
We too need to remember that the seemingly impossible is only possible through the power of God that is present within us. Whatever is asked of us will be made possible as we seek our Savior. Each time we seek Him, He stops and looks at us and loves us. He is never too busy, nor bothered by our requests. He hears and knows what we need, and is our source and supply, even if things do not appear in the way we might have hoped or imagined. May we seek Him, and trust that He is looking upon us in love, ready to move on our behalf.
with love in His eyes;
no matter our stance,
hope, fear or disguise.
is made doable;
for Christ within us,
makes our supply full.
Always there’s enough,
when we trust in Him;
He hears and He knows,
gives strength to begin.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You see us and love us, no matter what state we are in. Thank You that nothing is impossible with You. Forgive us for our lack of faith, and our attempting to do things in our own strength. Teach us to trust You more, so that we will seek You and depend on You in all things and at all times. Lead us to truly look at those around us, so that we might love as You love. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust in You to make the impossible, possible. Amen.
As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. – James 5:11
