To Be Understood
Proverbs 2:6 (KJV) For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
English is the second language for my new co-worker. She speaks it well and more importantly, she speaks the universal language of math. American culture and narrative are more of a challenge, however. She wants to be clearly understood.
As humans, we want God to understand us. We ache to be comprehended and validated and loved. An intimate friendship between two souls is what we crave.
In our mortal state, however, we have no tools to achieve this lofty goal.
Similarly, God wants us to understand Him. He aches to be comprehended and validated and loved. The kind of relationship we desire from Him, is exactly what He wants from us.
Our Heavenly Father created a bridge to cross the divide between our hearts. It is His Son, Jesus.
He's your new Best Friend.
"If you're not daring to believe God for the impossible, you're sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian life. And further still: if the size of your vision for your life isn't intimidating to you, there's a good chance it's insulting to God."--Sun Stand Still, Steven Furtick, author
