Let It Be Done to Me

When we allow our egos to fade…our true selves shine.

Luke 11:9

“And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

This is a teaching that confounds the rational mind.

The rational mind says, “Wait a minute. I ask for stuff all the time and don’t receive it.”

Could that be because our egos are doing the asking…not our true selves?

Our egos want things for physical or emotional gratification and satisfaction.

These things generally will not be the answer to our deepest yearnings.

Our deepest yearnings are on the soul level.

Could it be that those yearnings are coming directly from the Spirit deep inside us?

St. Paul put it this way, “The Spirit too comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings” (Romans 8:26).

When we sit in the silence of surrender and ask for what we need…those “inexpressible groanings” are able to rise to the surface.

Only then can we follow where the Spirit is trying to lead us.

It is then that we will find…and the door will be opened for us.

For in the seeking of what is good for us…we are already finding.

It will undoubtedly lead you to serving God’s people in ways your rational mind never would have imagined!

Trust in the process.
