About Lost Way Series

We search for what we do not know, driven by what we cannot recognize. What is life about? There is a way, the lost way, with answers for us all.

Devotional

Reading 1 John 4:7-8 NLT
Anyone who loves…knows God…for God is love. 

Jesus lived in unbroken worship of His Father. He received everything from the Father’s hand with love. He loved all God gave Him, and He loved God through all that was NOT given. So He lived in every step, without the slightest breach between His Father and Himself!

To love God’s provision and His withholding is to love Him. Complaining and resisting are really – at the heart of it – against God, with the accusation that He is not sufficient and not good. The exact lie given to Eve! It is still coming at us and the old man believes it utterly.

To think that our Prince of Peace never complained, never resisted and lived in unending gratitude. For everything, not just the convenient!

I want to watch this Glorious One live this ‘holy gratitude’ within and through me, as I ‘vacate’ and let Him occupy (in the words of Sir Ian Thomas).
