2019 DEC 21 Desperation and Revelation

Bread Crumbs by Loren Larson

Why Is it true that desperation precedes revelation? When the course of our everyday life is moving along without emergency, we oftentimes fail to seek God as we ought.

But when a dire circumstance raises its head, whenever there is a threatening storm on the horizon, or when we experience a “pressing need,” that is when we finally look to God.

Oh, Saint of God, this ought not to be so! We ought to be desperate for God every single hour of every single day. We should live with the constant recognition that without Him we can do nothing.

Without; His assistance, His guidance, His grace, we are helpless! That does not mean that we should live in a constant state of despair or have a negative attitude towards life in general.

It means that the child of God must learn how to walk by faith! It definitely means that being desperate is that honest moment when we look to God in a state of absolute dependence.

Then He, seeing our need, full of compassion and mercy, is always gracious and answers our heartfelt cry.

Whenever we become desperately dependent, He reveals the required answer. So stay desperate for Him!

I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit; because apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:5

There is Christmas in the Cross

BREAD CRUMBS

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men. Luke 2:14

For most people, the celebration of Christmas is a time filled with joy, family gatherings, the giving of gifts, and many happy and wonderful memories. And so it should be! But life has a way of sneaking in and stealing the emotional joy that Christmas time might bring.

I have spent Christmas alone, without family, without loved ones. I know what it is like to be limited financially and not be able to purchase gifts for loved ones. I have experienced the loss of loved ones or family and have experienced the grief over the Christmas experiences that will never happen again.

But the true meaning of Christmas is not found in a forlorn stable outside of Bethlehem but on a hill outside of Jerusalem. This is where the Son of God, who came to the earth to die for our sins, sacrificed His life for all of mankind.

Now, whosoever will; may give their heart to Christ, and no matter their situation, they will find the joy and contentment that only peace with God can bring.

You will always find the true meaning of Christmas when you consider what the Christ Child did for us on the Cross!

You will always find the true meaning of Christmas in the Cross.
