Daily Devotion 11/30/11

Matthew 13:55 “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?
Those who knew Jesus in the flesh had difficulty understanding the essence of Him. They knew Him as the son of Joseph and Mary. They knew Him to be the brother of James, Joseph, Simon and Judas. They knew Him to work with His father in the family business. This foreknowledge of Jesus in the flesh tainted their ability to understand that He was the awaited Messiah. His possession of human attributes prevented them from believing that He could ever be the Savior they had been awaiting. For us, those who hold the Word of God within our hands, it should seem that these same questions or questioning of Him should be nonexistent, but this is not always the truth. Many times, we question the existence and/or power of God because that which is occurring in our lives shows no details of His presence. To us, in the face of adversity He is only a human being, but this cannot be farther from the truth. We may never completely understand the intricacies of God b,ut His presence within our lives should never come into question. God is as present as we will allow Him to be; and, even then, He remains silently at our side.
Prayer Starter:
Lord, I am blessed to have You within my life. I am blessed to be Your child. Help me to live this blessing out loud.
