“… God who made you has something to say to you; the God who formed you in the womb wants to help you. Don’t be afraid, dear servant Jacob, Jeshurun, the one I chose. For I will pour water on the thirsty ground and send streams coursing through the parched earth. I will pour my Spirit into your descendants and my blessing on your children.” Isaiah 44:1-3  The Message

What does God want for you …? (3)

He made you … formed you … gave you life … and wants to help you. He knows where .. when .. and why you become “thirsty” and “parched” on the inside/unseen parts of your life. God knows exactly why you become anxious –afraid– and full-of-fear. He wants you to look to His Son who quietly speaks into your heart and mind: “Do not fear”. He wants your trust. He wants you to align your self … the real you … the you no one sees …  with who He is and what He has done — and will do in you. What does God want: He wants you whole … on your feet … with His Spirit pouring not only into you but into your wife .. your husband … and your children and grandchildren. He wants you to know … really know on the inside that He chose you. You will face your “today” and the world you live in with His abiding/filling peace when you let that truth really sink into the deep places of your heart and the parched areas of your mind. The Son is what the Father wants for you … and it only takes a moment…

“This is what my Father wants: that anyone who sees the Son and trusts who he is and what he does and then aligns with him will enter real life, eternal life. My part is to put them on their feet alive and whole at the completion of time.” John 6:40 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
