DESIRE DRIVES UNDERSTANDING

Wednesday 11-27-19.jpg

“In their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, ‘You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; you will keep on seeing, but will not perceive’” (Matthew 13:14).

For those who have seen through the emptiness of what this world has to offer, a longing for more opens one’s eyes and ears to the possibilities of fulfillment just waiting to be discovered in Christ Jesus. In scripture, the idea of understanding is so much more than a cognitive exercise. That one understands the desires of God for one’s life isn’t proved out with confessions, explanations, or passing a test but, rather, the embracing and practice of what one confesses to be true.
