When Jesus start out by saying “Truly” he is saying….

 

relax

Don’t you just love when you are reading the bible and God illuminates something in a way that is just so darn real.

Take for example Mark 10:15

“Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”” (Mark 10:15, ESV)

Did you catch that?

Jesus started off by saying, “Truly I say to you.”

I saw that and I automatically pictured Jesus saying, “So look guys, before you hear the rest of what I am going to say you have to stop a second and think about this….what I am about to say it not a lie, a suggestion, or my imagination. What I am about to say is something that you really can rely on, trust in, with all that you are…honest!”

So first He says, “Trust me”…then the rest of it basically tells us how to trust Him. We are to come to Him like children.

The average child does not spend the day trying to figure out how to make things happen, and the night worrying about whether or not it will happen.

The average child is not on medication to sleep, because their brain is so used to fretting that it cannot shut off.

No the average child is not mentally drained all the time.

And because they are not so wound up, and exhausted with worry over what will come next, they follow where they are led.

We are called to be like them.

The Bible says

 “The LORD will continually lead you; he will feed you even in parched regions. He will give of you renewed strength, and you will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring that continually produces water.” (Isaiah 58:11, NET)

God said it so we can trust it, because we can trust Him.

But we will never allow Him to lead us if we don’t trust Him enough to come to Him like a Child.

Rest in God! Trust Him to lead you to where you need to go and do what you are called to do.

Stop trying to figure out something that was never your responsibility.

Truly I say to you, trust God! You will not be put to shame for He is trust worthy!!
