The other morning when I was praying, I kept hearing deep down inside “Jesus has the answer.” That statement invaded my heart and kept knocking on the door of my mind. It felt like it was coming from the depth of my spirit and making its way up to my thoughts. It was a whisper from the Holy Spirit that needed to marinate in me until my mind caught it and embraced it. It sounds like a simple declaration of the Spirit but it is packed with power. Jesus has the answer! How many times do we look for answers anywhere we can? We even go to the Word of God and find answers that are not necessarily answers from God. It is possible to look at passages of the Word of God and interpret them as the Word of man. Our own ideas, thoughts and filters can make us miss the mark. When we approach God with our intellect and our own reasoning, we won’t find God in His Word. We will find man’s answers to a problem that God has already solved. Diving into the Word of God with an expecting heart, with a desire to hear from God is crucial. If we leave our ego at the door, it we let go and let God, we will hear from Him. The Word of God has the answers we need if we acknowledge that Jesus is the answer. Jesus was talked about in the Bible way before He came to earth and way after He departed to go to Heaven. The main theme, the main message of the Word of God is that Jesus has the answer, Jesus is the answer. He is the filter through which we should be dealing with life. He is the filter that gets us to our breakthrough, our answers, and our victory.
