"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Did I not tell you?

Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?"

I’m going to quickly break this down to what comes to mind when I read this verse.  To the many seasons in my life from the past few years.  This is what I see Jesus doing in my head when I read this.

From a few years back when I was just learning to trust Him and let go..

 

  • Did I not tell you?

I could just see Jesus with His head in His hands, shaking His head at me because He had to tell me sooo many times….

 

  • that if you believe

I thought I did believe.. I just didn’t believe the way I needed to.  Too many times I would pray about a situation and then I would doubt.  Well, maybe some might say that is harsh.  Doubt what God can do? 
I’m an impatient person and when you pray, you say that you believe God can do anything… but yet you sit and stew over it, complain about God not moving fast enough, wondering if He ever heard you.. isn’t that kind of doubting God? 

 

(my favorite picture of them all)

 

  • you will see the glory of God

I love the picture above because to me this is what Jesus was doing.  Since I couldn’t find one of Him jumping up and down and clapping, this is the next best thing.

He was so happy when I finally understood, finally HEARD what He was trying to tell me. 

Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?"

 

I am so thankful for the fact that God and His amazing Son, never give up on me.  They stick with me until I finally get it!  Even when I might disappoint Them.. yes, even though They love us I am sure all of us have disappointed Them from time to time.  Just like any father and brother might be disappointed in a family member when they watch them struggling.  But oh, the glory when we finally get it!!!  The smiles on Their faces is too much for us to comprehend!! 

Some may think they way I see Jesus is a little weird.. but in reality He is our big brother.  God is our amazing wonderful Daddy and Jesus is our Brother.  Both here to help us grow, discipline us, show us the way to walk and protect us. 

Aren’t They amazing!! 

and this song just popped into my head as I finished.  Love this song.  Red heart
