You are Invited

I believe God is leading us to consider the words of Jesus as recorded in Luke’s Gospel. When necessary I will give a little of the context so the scene is set.

Today Mary and Joseph have been frantically searching for Jesus, who is still only a boy, in Jerusalem and so you are invited to consider His words:

Why were you searching for Me? … Didn’t you know I had to be in My Father’s house? Luke 2:49

What does Jesus say to you today through these words – as a human being – and as God? Where are you searching for Him? Where have you found Him? How do His words affect your relationship with Him? What do you want to say to Him about the seeking – and the finding> How does He reply?

May God bless you as you seek Him in new areas of your life today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.

    Psalm 4:3-8 TPT [3] May we never forget that the Lord works wonders for every one of his devoted lovers. And this is how I know that he will answer my every prayer. [4] Tremble in awe before the Lord, and do not sin against him. Be still upon your bed and search your heart before him. Pause in his presence [5] Bring to Yahweh the sacrifice of righteousness and put your trust in him. [6] Lord, prove them wrong when they say, “God can’t help you!” Let the light of your radiant face break through and shine upon us! [7] The intense pleasure you give me surpasses the gladness of harvest time, even more than when the harvesters gaze upon their ripened grain and when their new wine overflows. [8] Now, because of you, Lord, I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once, for no matter what happens, I will live unafraid! Blessings, Herman
