Devotional - Thursday, September 21, 2017 264/101

Today's Scripture: "It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick." Jn 11:2 

5939. What begins with respect finds fruition in bigger and greater things. JG


See it.

Come let up

Live it.

Mary must have adored Jesus to dry His feet with her hair. And Jesus must have had special feelings for her and her family. The last persons to treat Him with such respect may have been the wise men some thirty years before. If there is anyone who would understand you and trust what you do when you do it, it should be your closest friends. But sometimes being close to someone or something thing makes it harder to see what someone else sees.

Recently I was stopped by someone who heard my teaching and I didn't know how to take his comments. He said I prayed with authority and that commanded his attention. He then approached me a week later and told me I was a cut above anyone else in the organization when it came to knowledge and communication. It was then I expected to hear a request attached to the compliment, but got something else. He was wanting more teaching beyond what I was doing in the facility and of course, I invited him to call me. It appears to me that what begins with respect finds fruition in bigger and greater things.

Pray it.

It's hard to imagine greater when Your blessings are already great, God.
