Creed: What Do You Believe?
- Tuesday, March 01, 2005
In her upcoming book, I Told That Mountain to Move (Tyndale House, 2005), Patricia Raybon says that when you pray for or about someone, you must first look for Jesus in them. Before you pray for folks, she writes, look for Jesus in them...in that way, the heart gets softened. And God must need soft hearts to hear our prayers. Surely God must need us to look at each other as he does, seeing not our flaws but seeing Jesus in us. Even in me.
Wow. I like that. I like that so much I can't think of another word to add to it.
Two simple rules I'll leave you with.
Recognize the origin of the warfare.
Recognize the One who is Greater than all that and then look for Him as you battle what you think is the painful onslaught from others. Attack the right enemy and look for Jesus in the pawn being used against you.
