The Famous Bracelet - Daughters of Promise - January 24, 2019

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.  James 1:5

You’ve probably said,“If only Jesus would come and tell me what to do!”  I have.  I reason that if I just knew what it was, I could easily go do it.  I said that just last week to my husband. 

“What would Jesus do?”has become a Christian idiom.  Rubber bracelets were made to wear on our wrist, ever a reminder to consider Him before making decisions.  The good news is ~ in so many instances ~ we do know what He did. 

We saw him with the shamed.  He restored their honor. 

We saw Him with the disciples.  He was a patient teacher. 

We saw Him with His family.  He made them accountable to God. 

We saw Him with His enemy.  He discerned the smokescreen because Satan is a liar. 

In many of these interactions, a character trait of Jesus was revealed or a pattern of behavior established.  We can ask God for wisdom to interpret it for our particular situations.  He promises He’ll answer.  He gives liberally.

Of all things I ask for, Lord, teach me to hear Your voice.  I am a blind and deaf child unless You open my eyes and ears.  Please.  Amen
