09/22 John 6:25
When they arrived and found him, they asked, “Teacher, how did you get here?” 26 Jesus replied, “The truth is, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you saw the miraculous sign. 27 But you shouldn’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that I, the Son of Man, can give you. For God the Father has sent me for that very purpose.”
The Father sent Jesus to us. Jesus is with us and He is seeking to guide us. What are you facing today? What ever it is Jesus can help you deal with your challenges. Seek the Lord now while He may be found.
09/22 John 6:25
09/21 John 6:22-24
The next morning, back across the lake, crowds began gathering on the shore, waiting to see Jesus. For they knew that he and his disciples had come over together and that the disciples had gone off in their boat, leaving him behind. 23 Several boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the Lord had blessed the bread and the people had eaten. 24 When the crowd saw that Jesus wasn’t there, nor his disciples, they got into the boats and went across to Capernaum to look for him.
The crowd wanted Jesus to do their bidding. They didn’t know Jesus and they didn’t understand what He was bringing to them. Jesus is Lord and the people wanted a servant to do their bidding.
09/20 John 6:21
Then they were eager to let him in, and immediately the boat arrived at their destination!
Time does not have a hold on Jesus. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Time runs down on us. Aging is a difficult taskmaster but we will always, always, always be with Jesus. He will never leave us nor will He abandon us to the ravages of time.
09/19 John 6:18-20
Soon a gale swept down upon them as they rowed, and the sea grew very rough. 19 They were three or four miles out when suddenly they saw Jesus walking on the water toward the boat. They were terrified, 20 but he called out to them, “I am here! Don’t be afraid.”
We can live a fearless life in Christ. Nothing can separate us from the Lord. Nothing can destroy us. Nothing can defeat us. Jesus is in control and will never let us go. There is wonder working power in the Lord. Jesus saves and saves us completely.
09/18 John 6:16-17
That evening his disciples went down to the shore to wait for him. 17 But as darkness fell and Jesus still hadn’t come back, they got into the boat and headed out across the lake toward Capernaum.
We need to spend time with the Father. Jesus calls us to know Him and the only way we can know and grow is to spend time with the Lord. Pray, meditate, read God’s Word-the Bible- and you will grow in knowledge and relationship with the Lord.
09/17 John 6:12-15
“Now gather the leftovers,” Jesus told his disciples, “so that nothing is wasted.” 13 There were only five barley loaves to start with, but twelve baskets were filled with the pieces of bread the people did not eat! 14 When the people saw this miraculous sign, they exclaimed, “Surely, he is the Prophet we have been expecting!” 15 Jesus saw that they were ready to take him by force and make him king, so he went higher into the hills alone.
Christ brings fullness into our life. We do not live a restricted existence for in Jesus we have the fullness of the Lord. Jesus is our every thing. Christ forgives our sin and brings us into the family of God-He is our elder brother and the Lord is our Father. The Holy Spirit guides us. No longer are we at the mercy of the world for Jesus is Lord of all. We live in His victory. He is Lord.
09/16 John 6:10-11
“Tell everyone to sit down,” Jesus ordered. So all of them — the men alone numbered five thousand — sat down on the grassy slopes. 11 Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and passed them out to the people. Afterward he did the same with the fish. And they all ate until they were full.
When you spend time with Jesus He will give you what you need and cannot earn-real life in Jesus Christ. He will fill you full of everything you need and full to overflowing of everything the Lord wants you to have-Jesus!
09/15 John 6:7-9
Philip replied, “It would take a small fortune to feed them!” 8 Then Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up. 9 “There’s a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that with this huge crowd?”
God is able to deal with your life. Jesus can equip you and guide you so that you can realize His life in you. Claim His presence moment by moment. Let Jesus have His way with you.
09/14 John 6:3-6
Then Jesus went up into the hills and sat down with his disciples around him. 4 (It was nearly time for the annual Passover celebration.) 5 Jesus soon saw a great crowd of people climbing the hill, looking for him. Turning to Philip, he asked, “Philip, where can we buy bread to feed all these people?” 6 He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do.
Jesus is Lord. Where do we connect with Him? Where ever we are. Jesus is seeking you. Let Him have control of you. Spend time with Him. Jesus will see you through all of life’s challenges-He is Lord and He loves you.
09/13 John 6:1-2
After this, Jesus crossed over the Sea of Galilee, also known as the Sea of Tiberias. 2 And a huge crowd kept following him wherever he went, because they saw his miracles as he healed the sick.
The people didn’t want Jesus they wanted His miracles. Seek the Lord while He may be found and He will be with you. Don’t worry about miracles just spend time with Him.
09/12 Psalm 122:9
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.
Time with the Lord is the best for you. Claim His free gift of life in Christ and spend time with Jesus. Live a life of peace and pray for peace. His joy is available for you and His peace is gift to you.
09/11 Psalm 122:7-8
O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls and prosperity in your palaces. 8 For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “Peace be with you.”
Pray for peace. The Lord would that you have peace. Care for those around you especially praying for their peace. Peace is a worthwhile pursuit. Pray for peace.
