What I want. What you want. What Jesus wants.
Jesus replied, “If I want him to live until I come back, what concern is that of yours? You follow me!” –John 21:22
When I read this verse yesterday, I thought we could all use it as a fill in the blank. As I say that please understand that I need it most of all. “If I want him/her to __________, what concern is that of yours? You follow me!”
If Jesus wants Jane to move to a foreign country and you to stay here, follow Him. If Jesus wants John to be the extrovert that influences hundreds of people and you to influence a smaller number, follow Him.
That morning before I read the scripture, I wrote in my journal “Please give me wisdom for …”. I am desperate to make the decisions that show I am following Him, His will. Decisions for my family. Decisions for my business and employees. Decisions for those around me who I influence both directly and indirectly. I just need wisdom, His wisdom. How do I follow You in all areas Lord.
Just lessons I learn over and over. Reminding myself God is using me where I am. I just need to follow Him.
