John 14 New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus, the Way to the Father
14 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”
5 “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 7 If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!”
8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”
9 Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. 11 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.
12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!
I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU ~
God's word becomes alive when we let it.
Jesus walked this earth and his example showed others. Thomas doubted the power of Jesus and Jesus said, "believe the work you have seen me do". Showing us that Thomas saw Jesus do amazing things in life. Jesus clearly told him to believe.
Have you ever had some amazing things happen in your life and you just knew that Jesus did it? I have and find it amazing how God answers prayer. If you are asking Jesus for something today, do not stop believing. Do not doubt the power of Jesus and ask in faith believing. Sometimes just like Thomas, we need to be reminded of brining back out thoughts to what Jesus already did for us. So many great things, but minds often go back to the one prayer that might not have been answered the way we wanted. The big wonder of why in our lives needs to be let go of sometimes in life. It doesn't matter why as much as how to get through this. We only get threw by calling on the name of Jesus and holding onto his truth.
I care and my prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
