“God is more eager to answer than we are to ask.”- Smith Wigglesworth
We answers. Our hearts cry out for answers. We wish to make sense of all that we experience in this world, so we cry out to God, seeking an answer from the Most High God to all that we experience here on earth. Yet, we fail to realize that God has already answered most of questions in the Book. He has carefully crafted and sketched a blueprint for our living, preparing us through earthly life for eternal life.
46If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.
47But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?”
John 5:46-47 (NIV)
The Book speaks about a relationship with God. In Genesis, God introduces and establishes the relationship and by chapter 3 things occur and sin comes into play causes an issue within the relationship. The remainder of the Book continues on how the relationship plays out with this barrier of sin. Yet, it never really seems fully taken care of by the offerings of bulls and lambs. A prophecy keeps coming up with Joel, Isaiah, and others demonstrating how One must come to take away the sins of the world, the Lamb of God who will serve as the ultimate sacrifice. Then, after Malachi, things switch gears. Jesus arrives and sets change in motion, bringing the Good News of God and offering life more abundantly through His personal sacrifice.
The answer that many of us are awaiting has already arrived and arisen. The answer is Jesus. Jesus is the adequate answer. Jesus is the appropriate answer. All of those questions that we have should not be placed in Jesus’ hands. If you recall the story, His hands have holes in them from when He suffered for our sins. Put your burdens in His trust. Most importantly, Jesus is the available answer. He was made available through the love of God for the whole world. He is available because He sticks closer than a brother. He is available today through belief and faith. He is the answer.
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.- 1 Peter 5:7 (KJV)
