Walk the Experiencing of Our Faith
SHEEP: The discomfort in my abdomen seems more than I can bear at times. I wonder how much longer it can go on. If I'd let it, my mind could go every which way but I won't let it.
Then I think about Jesus and what He suffered for me at Calvary "for the joy that was before Him". Since then I've learned that before the resurrection the disciples were unable to understand His teaching of the crucifixion and the resurrection until it was fulfilled before their eyes.
We have to "walk the experiencing of our faith" in our own circumstances before we can understand, truly believe in our heart what the WORD is saying to us.
I am also humbled and awed at the wonder of that kind of love. It can't even be put into words. But, by His GRACE I'm experiencing it!
He said, "He never leaves me" and I remember Jesus' words on Calvary – "My God, why have You forsaken me?"
GOD'S WORD: According to Psalms 22:1-4
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from my cries of anguish?
My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
by night, but I find no rest.[b]
Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;
you are the one Israel praises.[c]
In you our ancestors put their trust;
they trusted and you delivered them.
SHEEP: God had to turn away (separate) from His Son who was bearing our sin judgment, the judgment of death and the judgment of separation from God. It was the darkest moment of His life and He bore it for us! They praised Him, trusted Him and He delivered them!
His is the power.
Ours is the privilege and responsibility to welcome Him into our world – our private world of circumstances!
