Loneliness: An Opportunity to Stealing Away With God
Your circumstances will tell you give up but faith will remind why you started and what is to come!
luke 6:8-12 tlb
“How well he knew their thoughts! But he said to the man with the deformed hand, “Come and stand here where everyone can see.” So he did. Then Jesus said to the Pharisees and teachers of the Law, “I have a question for you. Is it right to do good on the Sabbath day, or to do harm? To save life, or to destroy it?” He looked around at them one by one and then said to the man, “Reach out your hand.” And as he did, it became completely normal again. At this, the enemies of Jesus were wild with rage and began to plot his murder. One day soon afterwards he went out into the mountains to pray, and prayed all night.”
Week 2: Never Doubt God and Exalt Him
In the above verses, Jesus is in the synagogue teaching when he notices a man with a deformed man. Being the healer and compassionate person that he is, Jesus sought to heal the man but there was a problem. It was the Sabbath, a day where one was not supposed to work and the Pharisees were watching closely to see if Jesus broke this rule.
Jesus lived with omniscience, in which he was able to search the hearts and discern the true motives of people when he was on earth. He knew that the Pharisees were planning his death and that performing miracles was only fueling their desire to kill him. Yet, despite knowing all of that, he would not be moved and continued to heal people and teach the gospel, further infuriating the Pharisees.
Instead of going to his earthly parents, Joseph and Mary, Jesus went to his Heavenly Father and prayed. I have no way of knowing what Jesus said to God during their time together but if I was aware that someone was plotting my murder, it would definitely be something that I discuss with God!
No matter the consequences, Jesus always prioritized God’s Will over his earthly well-being!
