Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 11.27.18

Scripture

Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me. If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.”

John 7:16-18

Reflection

Jesus made it clear that God, his Father, sent him to teach His Word. It was not a case where Jesus was walking around making up things and claiming to be the author of the message—he always gave credit to his Father.

His love for all mankind was a reflection of God’s love. He healed through God’s power. He rid people from demon possession; raised people from the dead; healed the sick, the blind, the deaf and the mute. Yet he was accused of being possessed by demons.

No matter what he did to help— he found himself doubted and under attack.

Understand that as you do God’s work you may come under attack by doubters, non-believers, and even by believers who are envious of your relationship with Him. As long as your focus is on God, His truth will reveal all— and silence the naysayers.

Prayer

Father thank You for opening my eyes to the truth, for showing me how to demonstrate this truth, and speak to others clearly— leaning on Your word and not relying solely on my understanding.

Father I understand that the closer that I get to You, the more I will be attacked by the “liar” and by those whose eyes are not opened and focused on You.

Thank You Father for protecting me. Thank You for blessing me.

I only want to honor and serve You, and live a righteous life. Show me how I can be a better servant Father. Amen.

Lovingly,

Natasha
