Devotion 1/12/11

John 14:8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

The fact that Jesus was the observable, corporeal image of the unobservable God had passed Philip’s understanding. Philip wanted to know God but had missed the fact the God was standing before Him in the flesh. Sometimes, those who desire to know God miss His existence completely. We ask God to reveal Himself, we ask Him to show His power, we ask Him to step powerfully into our lives, but we feel not His presence. Often God is standing before us, but we are too caught up in the provable, the actual, the realistic, to see that God is all around us if we would only open our eyes and hearts. God is not in the habit of hiding from His children, but we are, seemingly, in the habit of thinking that He does.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, open my heart to Your presence.
