John 6.65

I walk up and down my driveway in the dark to pray. It always seems that whatever I need to say just comes out. When I sit at my desk it seems like a struggle. One of the things I always pray for is for something to write. As you can see I didn’t get anything to write at that moment. I say all of that to say this. When I was praying this morning I felt like I was supposed to read in John chapter 5. So I read and I wasn’t getting anything, so I continued through chapter 6 and then I got stuck on verse John 6.65 Then he said, “That is why I said that people can’t come to me unless the Father gives them to me.” I thought …. I can write about that, but I couldn’t. I tried but nothing. I researched the words … nothing. I didn’t get it until today at lunch when I was eating with a friend of mind and we got to talking about stuff. He was telling me about a friend of his that he wanted to come to the Lord, but nothing was working. What he said to him was not working. Without going into a lot of detail. The lord showed me that the scripture this morning was for him. It was a good moment in time today at lunch … for him and me. I think he got some peace when he realized besides planting the seeds of righteousness he was also trying to water them. That is not our job and I think we are all guilty of that. We want people to have what we have so bad that we actually get in the way of the Lord and make it worse! Are there any takers? The other part to this story is I still got to write just not when I wanted to. I also heard the Lord this morning, but didn’t think I was. It never dawned on me that what I was hearing this morning was preparing me for my time with my friend today at lunch. How many times do you or I hear the Lord and not even realize that is what you’re hearing?
