(Yesterday's post can be found on our Facebook page...my app wasn't working so I couldn't post here.)
Today's reading is Mark 6-8.
I think I'm going to find it hard to narrow it down to one verse as we go through the New Testament...there are just so many good points!
But I will try!!
I did choose two today...
Then they scoffed, “He’s just a carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon. And his sisters live right here among us.” They were deeply offended and refused to believe in him. And because of their unbelief, he couldn’t do any miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them. (Mark 6:3, 5 NLT).
First thing that caught my eye was that people scoffed at Jesus--they provably made fun of Him and thought He was a nobody--He had nothing to offer.
How many times haves you felt that way? Like you are wasting your time, energy and resources? OR you are too afraid of what others will think to even start trying to do what God has placed in your heart?
I want to encourage you today that everything uou do, no matter how big or small, when you do it for God's glory, IT MATTERS. YOU are somebody! And He has placed special gifts inside of you to be a blessing to others and to bring glory to His name!
When God gave me the vision for foundations 6:19, I thought it was crazy--that no one would care. But I'm so glad I trusted Him because I've seen Him do amazing things in the lives of others through simpy showing them how to be healthy physically and how to connect their journey with their faith!
God has a plan and a purpose for you, but only You can live it out! Which brings me to the next verse...
So, I find it so interesting that the Bible tells us that Jesus couldn't do something...but not because He was unwilling or incapable, but because of a lack of faith! People were offended and refused to believe in Him!
No one can believe for you..:no one can do what God has purposes you to do. So embrace it and watch how God shows up and shows off in your life and in the lives of those around you!!
