Partial Revelation Requires Faith - Daughters of Promise - March 29

Daughters of Promise header 2023



Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recoded in this book.  John 20:30

Why weren’t all of Jesus’ words and miracles recorded for me to read?  I’m more than curious about what I’ve missed.  I want to know it all and not miss one revelation.  I can’t wait to someday hear the rest of the story.

I have to believe that God revealed just enough of his Son’s life to give me sufficient evidence regarding Jesus’ divinity.   I need no more to convince me.   Faith starts where evidence stops.

If the Bible had been conceived and written by people, most likely it would have consisted of volumes rather than one book.   People are prone to tell all they know so others are convinced of their credibility.  They’d rather tell too much than not enough.

God need not do that.  He inspired people to write His Word with just enough information to convince those of us who are teachable.  He does not scramble to tell it all, for he is God and he writes with confidence and security.  He does not overstate his case with some pathetic need to be right.

On a personal level, I ache for more revelation.   I wish God would shed more light on my life.  I feel there are too many situations in which I have to walk by faith.  I take heart.  Though faith is an uncomfortable exercise, it’s not a misplaced one.  Just as I choose to trust that God inspired the right amount of Scripture to be written, I choose to believe he sheds enough light on my path for today.  He knows the way ahead.  I don’t.

I can be confident and secure with you writing my future.  Abba, You reveal what I need as I need.  Amen
