Spread it Out

Hezekiah received a letter and it is written that after he received it, he took the letter and “spread it out before the LORD.” He opened the letter up and gave it to God.

When something is troubling you, what is the first thing that you do? Do you take it right away and spread it out before the Lord? Do you open it up and give it all to God? Do you truly have childlike faith?

If you are going through something right now, spread it out before the Lord. Give it fully to him. You will feel a lot better after you have spread it out.

“After Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it, he went up to the LORD’s Temple and spread it out before the LORD.” – 2 Kings 19:14 [NLT]

Believe Without Seeing

As I was taking a morning walk, I heard a voice say, “Hello.” I responded with a “hello” and continued walking forward.  Then the voice asked, “How are you doing?” I answered that I was “well” and then crossed the street.  I had looked to my left to see who I was speaking with but I did not see anyone anywhere. I turned to look across the street. No one there. I turned around. No one there. Who was I talking to?

I have no idea where the person was that I was speaking to but I know someone was there. I couldn’t see anyone. But I believe. This reminded me of when Jesus said, “Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” We do not always see things but we still believe.

We spend a lot of time needing proof for everything. We must know it all. We must see it all. Sometimes we need only believe. Believe with childlike faith. Today, what is hindering you? What is keeping you from believing?

“Then Jesus told him, ‘You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.’” – John 20:29 [NLT]
