Finding Out What Jesus Wants

I wake up and wonder what does He want today? I can only hope He shows me. And that He shows me how to give it. How to wrap it up all pretty and present it to Jesus for Advent.

I climb out of the shower and into the routine. Dress. Coffee. Find my Bible and the other book I follow sometimes. It points me to this:

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.     Isaiah 58:11

I read it, and my heart speeds up. It feels like an actual word for me from the Maker of this very day.

I will guide you. Always.

I read the other verses and the entry for the day, but I can’t get past the whisper of God. The one He just gave as I sat at my table half-dazed.

No worries about the gift today. I will show you what I want.

So I read it again. And its truth saturates my mind and I decide I will study it until I know it through my whole being. I will learn it and think on it all day. Maybe I’ll put it on a little card. Carry it around in my pocket.

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs . . .

And the end of the day, I will lay on my pillow and thank Him for the guiding. I will praise Him for the satisfying. My gift for Jesus today will be His Word to me. I will offer it back.

We’re celebrating Advent this year by offering daily gifts to Jesus. Why not join us? It’s a great way to find quiet at Christmastime and get ready for the greatest birthday celebration there ever was. Christmas Day.
