Look No Further

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God (Rom 11:33a NIV)

You do not need to look any further! You are known! You are loved! You are secure!

 

Jesus knows your name. Jesus knows where you live and work. He is fully aware of your social, economic, cultural and political situation. He knows what people are saying about you. He knows exactly how you feel about your work.

 

This knowledge that Jesus has about you, and your workplace is not information that he gleaned from Google or Facebook or Twitter or watching the news. God’s has intimate, first-hand knowledge because he is present, and his light shines right where you are.

 

Jesus is aware of your deeds, your hard work, your perseverance. He knows that you have not grown weary when enduring hardship for your faith. In the midst of your afflictions Jesus has blessed you with heavenly riches. Jesus sees your faithfulness even when you are surrounded by people whose lifestyles do not reflect Christ’s character. Jesus knows you are maturing in your love, faith, courage and service. He sees that your clothes are unsoiled by sin. Jesus is fully aware of how your life bravely and steadfastly points to the name of Jesus.

 

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God (Rom 11:33a NIV)

Continue to be shaped and sustained by the living truths of Christ. Continue to walk with Jesus! Rest in the security of God’s love! Eagerly continue to seek God for sustenance and strength – for it is only in God’s strength and the power of the Holy Spirit that you will continue to persevere.

 

With the Apostle Paul in faith declare I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day (2 Tim 1:12b)
